Events for budding artists - Reading Pictures: Seeing Stories

Mon, 29 Oct 2018

East Riding Libraries and Customer Services are hosting a series of art- based events as part of a festival named ‘Reading Pictures: Seeing Stories’ across the area, free for children to attend. Events start from Thursday, 1 November, running through to 24 November.

East Riding Libraries are working in conjunction with Arts Council England and the Yorkshire and Humber branch of ASCEL (the Association of Senior Children’s and Education Librarians) to hold this festival of visual literacy. Working with visual and creative digital artists and key partners of book illustrators, Reading Pictures: Seeing Stories will give children and young people the opportunity to meet and learn from illustrators and artists, to explore the connection between literacy and the visual arts.

East Riding Libraries and Customer Services have programmed an exciting range of FREE events across the county as part of the festival – all events are free, but places must be booked. Phone or pop in to the branch to book your child’s place.
