Program Highlights

Free-For-All: 2 Gents 

Theatre happens anywhere intrepid audiences and actors meet! Join Pikes Peak Library District as we welcome actors from Theatreworks Colorado Springs for a performance of Shakespeare. Going strong since summer 2019, Theatreworks' joyful, mobile production of 2GENTS is a 70-minute abridged version of Two Gentlemen of Verona in which two best friends fall for the same person - who then takes them on a romping adventure to prove that all's fair in love and war. Packed full of dogs, enchanted forests, and Shakespearean hijinks, this show is appropriate for the oldest to the youngest, and everyone in between. 

Easy Yarn Art

Create a cardboard template of a word or shape and then wrap it in colorful yarn to create a bold art statement.  

Portable Sewing Kits

Make a pin cushion and a small sewing kit for on-the-go-mending.  

Ice Cream Social

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream. Celebrate summer with a pre-packaged treat. While supplies last. 

Sidewalk Chalk Art 

Drop in and show us your artsy side with sidewalk chalk art! Creating sidewalk chalk art is a great way to get outside and brighten up everyone's day. Once you have created a masterpiece, take a picture and post it on social media and tag us. All ages welcome!

Mondrian-Inspired Art 

Mondrian art has influenced architecture, fashion, music, and more with its bold use of color and shape. Drop in and create your own Mondrian-inspired art (or help with the mural!) and learn more about Dutch Artist Piet Mondrian and his abstract art technique. All ages welcome.

3D Pennant Flags

Celebrate the Summer Games in Paris by making a pennant flag celebrating your favorite events, countries, or cultures.
