CUAC Art Camp @ SLC Public Library (SLC: Aug. 6 & Aug. 8)

Tue, Aug 6, 2pm (kids) & 4pm (teens) 
Thu, Aug 8, 2pm (kids) & 4pm (teens) 
Main Library | 210 East 400 South | 801-524-8200
CUAC and The City Library combine forces to offer 
unique, FREE art workshops for kids (ages 4–12) and teens 
(ages 13–18). Participants will learn about using storytelling 
and performance as creative expression. While creating original 
works of art, kids and teens will learn essential art theories 
and gain historical perspective into how art from decades and 
centuries past influence art today and tomorrow. Each day will 
present a new experience and new information, and participants 
are encouraged to attend as many or as few sessions as 
their schedule allows—no registration necessary.
Tue, Aug 6, 2pm | Main Library, Children's Library 
Storytelling is an important and powerful aspect of artistic expression. 
Learn about different ways to tell stories with art, how 
artists in the past infuse their work with narratives, and use 
watercolors to tell your own story about aliens and the worlds 
beyond our Earth. Suitable for ages 4–12.
Tue, Aug 6, 4pm | Main Library, Canteena 
Sounds and audio can be used as an artistic medium, especially 
when telling stories. Learn about how to use sound, the 
spoken word, and storytelling as artistic media, and try your 
own hand (or vocal cords) at developing story-based audio art. 
Suitable for ages 13–18.
Thu, Aug 8, 2pm | Main Llibrary, Children's Library 
Unleash your artistic super powers with movement, space, and 
costume in this performance art workshop for kids. Explore the 
history of superheroes, develop your own alter ego, and create 
a personalized mask to wear while performing as your superself. 
Suitable for ages 4–12.
Thu, Aug 8, 4pm | Main Library, Canteena 
Superheroes reveal what our culture holds as our highest ideals 
(and often what we perceive as great weaknesses). Learn about 
culture concepts of the superhero, then use these ideas to explore 
performance art and how artists use their body, physical 
space, and time as artistic media. Suitable for ages 13–18.
CUAC art experts will also host special events during the Main 
Library’s regular kids’ crafts times on Wed, Aug 7, 4pm and 
Sat, Aug 10, 2pm.
This program is supported by The Sam and Diane Stewart Family Foundation, Salt Lake City Public Library, R. Harold Burton Foundation, and The Lawrence T. Dee and Janet T. Dee Foundation.
