Second Annual Youth Day
A day of stories and art, workshops, demonstrations and music aimed at our younger audience members.
January 5 - Noon to 6pm


Admission is free, but on this day only students may become Crary Art Gallery Members for just $10 (regularly $25).
NOON - Gallery opens.
2-3 PM Youth Day kicks off with an interactive storybook reading by Sue Spencer, Struthers Library Theatre’s artistic director. Parents of pre-school age children up to 1st or 2nd grade are invited to bring their children to the gallery to enjoy the book reading and art activity.

3-5 PM character designer and Illustrator Riley Phillips will offer a demonstration showing how he brings life and color to his characters using the unique tools of digital painting. He will paint a character he’s designed especially for the Crary Youth Day event. Following the demonstration, he will lead the class in a workshop detailing his thought process as he sketches his characters. Attendees will be provided paper and a pencil and will be invited to draw along with Riley for the remainder of the workshop. This is an activity will be fun and interesting for anyone who is old enough to hold a pencil and follow directions, but is truly targeted to middle- and high-school students as well as our visiting college students.
5-6PM - Youth Day will wrap up with a set of music by local band Egypt Hollow, comprised of Kenny Anderson (lead vocals/guitar), Addison Gee (bass/backup vocals), and Ciara Whipp (keyboard/vocals). This alternative folk rock band’s relaxing, acoustic style is defined by a unique blending of vocal counter-melody and harmony along with the low resonance of the moving bass. The band released their first studio recording in January of 2012, entitled "The Beautiful Am" and has plans to record a full length album and release a music video in the near future. We are excited to welcome the band back home after being away on their first semester at college.
