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 currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. 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.
