“THIS IS US!” Children’s Art Exihibit Now on Display

Now on view on the main floor of the Patchogue-Medford Library is a children’s art exhibit titled This Is Us! The inaugural exhibition, made possible with the support of the Patchogue-Medford Friends of the Library, features drawings from children aged 5 – 10. All of the drawings were created during a library program last March. The children were given white stock paper, pencils, colored pencils, crayons and markers, and instructed to draw pictures of themselves as well as their family members. The project’s goal was to teach the children multiculturalism and diversity through art. In total, 15 children participated in the program and have their artwork on display.
