Superhero Training

Newton Free Library, 330 Homer Street, Newton Centre, Druker Auditorium

Join Jungle Jim as he leads young patrons through the rigors of what it takes to be a superhero, and learn more about some of our unsung superheroes.  Volunteers from the audience will be transformed (with balloons, of course) into traditional superheroes the kids know and with whom they identify. The show progresses to talk about the heroes in our daily lives: policemen, teachers, firefighters, nurses, librarians. Lastly, Jim will lead the children through the idea that they can be heroes themselves.

Art Reception for Chuck Guest

Monday, August 3, 2015
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Newton Free Library, 330 Homer St., Newton Centre, Gallery

Chuck Guest often sits for hours studying the ever-changing ocean and sky with its incredible beauty near his second home in Beachmont, MA. He enjoys the bold, contrasting colors and dynamics that they offer. His paintings recreate those feelings or impressions on canvas. He makes his own stretchers from wood reclaimed in Vermont where he primarily resides and stretches all of the canvasses for his work.
