Art and Collage with Alexandra Vangsnes (ages 6–12)

January 22 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 00 min

For ages 6–12

Learn how to make your own original collages with the help of artist and illustrator Alexandra Vangsnes.

Using the work of American author/illustrator Christian Robinson as inspiration, Alexandra will show participants how to create collage pieces using painted paper, cutouts, and more. The Library will provide all the necessary supplies for this workshop!

Children ages 0–6 must be accompanied by an adult at all times when inside the Library, and for the duration of this event. Children between the ages 7–12 may participate in the program on their own, while their chaperone remains inside the Library.

About Alexandra Vangsnes: Alexandra is originally from the state of Virginia, and currently lives in Paris, France with her husband and daughter. Her family is from Norway, and she is very inspired by folk costumes and traditional knitting techniques from Norway and other Northern European countries. You’ll often find Alexandra reading, writing, drawing, cooking, listening to records, doing yoga, or knitting. You can see Alexandra’s Etsy shop here.
