Briceville Public Library to hold free summer art workshops


This summer, the Briceville Public Library will offer four art workshops for children in collaboration with the Knoxville Museum of Art and sponsored by BWXT Y-12.

Students have the opportunity to personally work with an art master through this unique outreach program. Each session lasts 90 minutes and combines art history, art appreciation and a take-home, hands-on art activity.

Scheduled workshops at the Briceville Public Library are:

“Art and Culture of Native Americans,” July 9
10-11:30 a.m., ages 5-7
Noon-1:30 p.m., ages 8-12

“Mexican Folk Art,” July 17

Thanks to the sponsorship of BWXT Y-12, there is no charge to participate. However, workshop space is limited and is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to enroll as soon as possible.
