Project Designation: Valentine’s Day Arts and Crafts

On Saturday, February 9th, high school students from Arcadia High School came and presented a fun and informative workshop on graphic design to kids in grades 5-8. The tween participants learned about color theory and fonts. Then tweens had the opportunity to put that knowledge to use making cards and graphic designs on computer for Valentine’s Day.

The teens who presented did a fabulous job as always. They have their own nonprofit organization: Project Designation. They are so great with the kids, and I’m hoping to have them back in Spring!

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, and STEAM/science programs. I also do 16 weeks of Infant/Toddler Storytimes each year. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
