Art in the Garden offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate Spring with art, free entertainment and fun family activities at Desert Foothills Library April 18, 10:30am-1:30pm.

Special Art in the Garden events in the library include dynamic storytelling in the Community Room. From 10:30am-11:30am, Fran Rosenthal will tell one of the most popular stories of all time, “Peter and the Wolf.” From 11:30am-1:30pm, school principals and other dignitaries will introduce their favorite books. Out on the Library’s Waterfall Terrace, there will be a continuous flow of music, dance, choral and theatrical performances. Guests are invited to join in the festive atmosphere by dressing creatively or in costume.

There will be an Education & Community Services and Sonoran Arts League “Child’s Play and Kid’s Club Art Contest” Winners Art Exhibition, in addition to a wide array of informational tables hosted by community organizations. Participants include Sonoran Arts League, Education & Community Services (CCUSD), Desert Foothills Library, Scully Learning Center, Desert Artists and Arizona Art Alliance Extra Special Art Classes, Desert Awareness and more.

A highlight of Art in the Garden is the Sonoran Arts League’s “Art Stuff Sale,” which offers everything from art supplies, framing materials, books and props.
