After the CAC (Creative Art Connection) takes down their show this week at the Bossier Central Library, it will be replaced with the works of local art students taught by award winning artist Kathleen Pate. The theme is “Let’s Jump into Art.” The students will display their works from Saturday, November 10 through Saturday, December 8th.
This is an exciting time for these budding artists. They put in many hours preparing for their debut. The exhibit will include paintings in oil, acrylic, and water color as well as sculptures. Stop by to see the wonderful things they have created.
The Books for Children Christmas tree will be in the foyer of the Central Library next week. This is the sixth year we have sponsored this program for the children living in the Barksdale Annex neighborhood in Bossier City. The kids, ages 5—12, that attend one of the Friendship Houses will receive a new book for Christmas.
Make a note:
