Art is flourishing at the Carmel Valley Library with the library’s arts and craft program. Run by local Torrey Pines High School students who formed the club Art in Motion at their school with the intentions of teaching art to children, the program teaches and encourages students to become passionate about art and the important role it plays in our lives. The club was fashioned in response to the decline in funding for art programs in California’s schools. The program is geared for children in kindergarten through sixth grade, however, all children are welcome, and specializes in individual, one-on-one attention. Making a little mess for the sake of art is encouraged. The program takes place on the second and fourth Wednesdays and Fridays of the month. For more information about program dates and more contact the library at 858-552-1668.
