Andover Library to present Junior Picasso Art Show and eBay program

ANDOVER — The Andover Public Library has two exciting programs coming up in the next few weeks.

Once again the library will host its annual Junior Picasso Student Art Show. This year’s show will run April 27 through May 2.

The show is open to all students in grades kindergarten through 12. Students are eligible to enter a maximum of two entries in the following categories: paintings, drawings, sculpture, mixed media and photography. All artwork must be the original work of the artist and must be framed or matted and ready for hanging, said Laura York, reference and adult services librarian.

Three monetary prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place. The third place winner will be awarded $25, the second place winner will be awarded $50 and the first place winner will receive $75. The prizes were donated by the Laker Ruritan Club.

There will be three winners chosen in each age group. The age groups are kindergarten through fourth grade, fifth through eighth grades and ninth through twelfth grades.

There will be one winner chosen as Best of Show and will be awarded $100. The Best of Show prize is donated by the Andover Bank.

Honorable mentions will receive $5 and a People’s Choice Award of $50 will be awarded as well. The People’s Choice Award is donated by the Friends of the Andover Public Library. It will be awarded for the work of art that receives the most votes at the conclusion of the art show.

An open reception will be held April 27 from 12 to 2 p.m.

“Trophies, ribbons and monetary awards will be presented at 12:30 p.m.,” York said.

The art show is being sponsored by the Friends of the Andover Public Library, The Laker Ruritan Club and the Andover Bank. Entry forms for the show are available at the library.

On April 20 at 11 a.m., Jerry Smith will be at the library to teach patrons everything they need to know about eBay.

Smith is an education specialist trained by eBay. He has a business degree from The Ohio State University.

Brown will be on hand to teach participants various ways to effectively research high value items for resale, York said.

“He will teach you how to get the best price possible from your goods as well as how to list more items in less time while maintaining a positive rating from buyers,” York said.

Qualifications for taking this course include knowledge of getting and receiving E-mails and other basic computer skills.

The course is free and library patrons can register by calling the library.
