09/25/11 Cos Cob Library hosts children’s Chinese art

The Cos Cob Library is host to a new display of children’s Chinese artwork, which is being exhibited in their Community Room through Sept. 30. The exhibit is sponsored by the Chinese Language School of Connecticut, the non-profit, Riverside-based provider of Chinese language programs to students, schools and corporations.

This year’s theme is “Inventions from the Middle Kingdom,” based on Simon Winchester’s book, The Man Who Loved China. The first day of the show coincided with the Library’s annual Open House and book fair on Saturday, Sept. 10. On display is a sampling of students’ work from kindergarten through sixth grade.

Katy Chen Myers, the school’s vice president of art and culture, explained, “We are so grateful for the Cos Cob library’s support of our children’s art and culture programs. CLSC’s curriculum integrates Chinese history, art and culture, and includes hands-on learning projects for students via weekly workshops, so each student can learn experientially, through art. The Greenwich community is very fortunate to have the Cos Cob library’s resources available to children, teens and families.”

Visitors can view the artwork during regular Library hours.
