The Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library will be hosting a series of arts and crafts classes designed with special needs people in mind. These classes are made possible through a partnership between the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library and Uniendo Naciones Solo Por Servir, a nonprofit organization that focuses on serving and empowering the community.

This class encourages students to explore their artistic side and learn about creating art out of recycled materials. Participants must be able to make their own craft without their parent’s or caretaker’s assistance. However, we do ask that participants are closely supervised and not be left alone at any time.

Mrs. Elizabeth Aleman, Member of Uniendo Naciones, will be the instructor for the class. Mrs. Aleman will present the materials and how to use them; yet, the students will be creating their own unique art piece and will have the freedom to create their inimitable piece.

Classes will take place every Friday, from 10 a.m.  to 12 noon starting September 6th and will run for a total of 6 weeks. On Friday, October 11th, last day of class, students will be rewarded with a small reception in which they will be able to exhibit their best artwork. The reception will be open to the public.

To register or get more information, please call the Library Reference Department at 956-383-6246 or visit us at 1906 S. Closner Blvd. in Edinburg.
