New! Monthly Teen Programs every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 4:00 – 5:30 pm in the Library Meeting Room. We’ll be offering speakers on various topics, artists, writers, and various activities, chosen by our Youth Advisory Group.
- March 21 – Meet the Mayor of San Rafael, Gary Phillips – Round-table discussion
- April 18 – Explore the World of Art with Katya McCulloch – Team Works Art Mentor – Round-table discussion and hands-on art activityTeamWorks Art’s primary goal is to provide on-going arts engagement for at-risk youth ages 11-18 in Juvenile Justice and in Alternative Education high schools in Marin County. TeamWorks teaching artists are professionals working, exhibiting and collaborating creatively in our community. Relationships between teaching artists and partner schools are strong. Within the classroom, artists create a social climate that nurtures collaboration and stimulates creativity.Program Director, Katya McCulloch, is a co-founding artist of this program, as well as a teaching artist. She has many years experience as a community artist in Marin County and throughout the Bay Area, in remote indigenous communities of central Australia, and Europe. Katya spent most of her early life in Germany, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C., where she graduated from public school. She believes strongly that art is not just an elitist profession, but a universal human need. Ms. McCulloch has taught art at San Quentin State Prison through William James Association Prison Arts Project (formerly Arts-in-Corrections) since 2004.
- May 16 – Meet San Rafael’s Chief of Police, Diana Bishop – Round-table discussion
