Explore Elementary Students' Artworks at the Library

The Pikesville Branch Library has paintings by Wellwood International Elementary School students, from Kindergarten to fifth grade, on display.

An art opening and reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday at the Pikesville Branch Library.

The artwork is by students at Wellwood International Elementary School, and the reception is for students and their parents, and others who are interested in viewing the colorful, lively works.

From dinosaurs to botanicals and handprints, this display is a mood-lifter.

Visit the library from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. Sundays.

The exhibit is part of the branch's partnership with Wellwood, according to Librarian Andrea Shore, who is also outreach coordinator for the branch.

"This show features diverse works based on the 2013 Summer Reading theme, Dig Into Reading to include aboriginal art dots paintings, pictographs on cave wall, dragons, dinosaurs, Egyptian cartouches, and collage works inspired by Eric Carle's children's book, TheTiny Seed," she said in a statement.

The artwork is displayed throughout the building, at 1301 Reisterstown Road, Shore said.

Sneaks the Cat, the Baltimore County Public Library System's mascot, will visit during the event.

And UMBC students will be in the children's area to demonstrate a 3-D printer.
