San Diego, CA.-Sylvia Wolfe, Youth Services Librarian, and the Vista Library are sponsoring an Art Exhibit titled Teens Go Green! through the month of July 2013 featuring local author and art instructor Valerie Colston.  Two one hour art programs (July 25 and August 1) will be offered to Teen library visitors.

The art works in the exhibit are inspired by Colston’s Teens Go Green!  Tips, Techniques, Tools and Themes for YA Programming.  Visitors  to the exhibit will see plastic bottles turned into a non-wearable decorative fashion shoe and Bobble Head sculpture.  Cardboard is transformed into a Kimino artwork.   What once was box packaging for noodles is now agame board.  There are other surprises that engage the viewer’s imagination and tap into the recycled bits and pieces that turn throwaways into treasures.

Instructor Valerie Colston, M.A. is an art instructor and author with many years of experience developing and teaching art programs as an Art Performer at several San Diego local libraries.  She has taught 100 Art Ideas for Teachers at the University of California, Extension in San Diego, California and a variety of Art history courses online through colleges and universities.  Her book 200 Projects to Strengthen Your Art Skills published by Barrons Educational Series has received outstanding reviews appearing in School Library Journal, National Art Education Association newsletter, and more.  Her "It's Easy to be a Green Teen" appeared in  the youth librarian publication Voices of Youth Advocates October 09 issue.  Teens Go Green!  Tips, Techniques, Tools and Themes for YA Programming.  Libraries Unlimited Professional guides for Young Adult Librarians Series was released December 2011.
