Call it a mini-Spoleto experience for the little ones: This Saturday, local author Celia Cerasoli will lead an artistic adventure for kids of all ages at the Charleston Library Society downtown. The subject? Ugo and His Pictures (CreateSpace, 2011), a children's book she wrote about the life and art of her friend Ugo Tesoriere, a Brooklyn-born Sicilian doctor-turned-artist who moved to Rome to become an artist (see the rest of his bio here). His vast collection of paintings was given to Mepkin Abbey, where it resides today.
Saturday, January 28th, 10-11:30AM and 12:30-2:00 PM
On Saturday, January 28th, Celia Cerasoli, Curator and Director of the Tesoriere Collection at Mepkin Abbey, will present two programs to educate and inspire students of all ages to explore their own artistic abilities. In her 90 minute classes, Ms. Cerasoli uses her book, Ugo and His Pictures, to intertwine hands-on artistic experiences with an engaging discussion of the creative process. The programs are free.
For students and art lovers of all ages.
