Program Description


Join Santa Barbara Public Library and community partners on State Street for a fun preschool art experience the second Friday of the month over the summer. Drop in between 2pm and 3pm for an introduction to the art activity and then get started creating! All supplies will be provided, and children will be encouraged to take home their art pieces.

On June 9th we will create beautiful leaf rubbing artwork that you can hang and display at home with the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. Explore leaves of different shapes, colors, and learn to identify different trees and parts of leaves. This event is one of the Land Trust’s “Discover Outside” events, a week of free, family-friendly activities from June 1st-11th. Everyone is welcome!

Check out books and our monthly maker challenge at the Library on the Go Van too! Find us on State Street, just in front of the Art Museum between Anapamu and Figueroa Streets.


Participants in this event may be photographed by Library staff. These photos may be used in promotional or educational publications, including in print, social media, and presentations. Please see staff if you do not consent to having your photo taken. Staff will obtain individual, signed photo releases of photographs that contain only an individual as opposed to a group.

In case of inclement weather, outdoor activities may be canceled. For the most up to date information, please contact the library with any questions or concerns before traveling to library events.
