Exciting Goings-On At Central Library

ArtShackWhen I was out last night I also spotted the above structure outside Central Library. I’m not sure if construction has quite been completed, but it’s an Art Shack that the Dunlop Art Gallery plans to use this summer for two week-long art camps with their artist-in-residence Heather Cline.  The camps are free, and all materials will be supplied.

The first camp is for children ages 9-12, and it will run July 7-11 from 9:30 am-12:30 pm. The second camp is for teens ages 13-17, and it will run August 11-15 from 1-4 pm. The goal of both camps is to use different art techniques and materials to explore themes related to the community and the natural environment.

Participants are asked to register in advance, and more information can be obtained by calling 306-777-6040 or by visiting the Regina Public Library website.

And speaking of Central Library, there’s a launch tonight for the latest round of public consultations about the future of the library at 7 p.m. The consultation is being administered by the Vancouver-based company DIALOG. It previously worked on projects involving the Vancouver Public Library and Calgary Public Library. In addition to tonight’s event at Central there will be an on-line survey and mobile polling. You can find out more in this Leader-Post report.
