ESCC reimagines summer youth program

Tuesday, June 9, 2020

The Eureka Springs Community Center has joined forces with the Eureka Springs Carnegie Public Library to reimagine activity for youth, ages 10 and up, during a time when distance between us is required.

The library recently launched the virtual summer reading program called “Imagine Your Story” and is adding a visual component called “Create Your Fantasy.” Each week, kids can reimagine a common visual or concept from a fantasy book series. Possible projects include designing your own avatar, a new character or redesigning one that already exists; creating logos for Quiddich teams; designing new kingdoms of Middle Earth or Narnia and building a model of a D&D character.

Eureka Springs High School art teacher Jessica Cummings will teach a new medium and technique through a Zoom meeting online, the community center will provide the supplies needed for each lesson and there is no charge or membership requirements for the program. All kids who sign up during the first week will receive a free t-shirt in their supply kit.

To register, visit and detailed information about supply pickup and instructional times will be available.
