ARTpal Design Competition
In continuing our partnership with the Monrovia Public Library, Mt. Sierra College (MSC)t will help kickstart the Summer Reading Program. The mission of the iREAD Summer Reading Program is to motivate children, young adults, and adults to read. Mt. Sierra College supports iREAD’s mission and believes in promoting education, digital literacy, and life-long learning skills. The Monrovia Public Library will invite the entire Monrovia community— over 4,000 residents—to participate in our ARTpal Design Contest!
What is ARTpal?
MSC’s Library has developed the activity ARTpal to encourage creativity by introducing children and teens to the creative arts. ARTpal is similar to the pen pal process, in which a child shares their work with a college student. The college student re-designs the child’s creative writing or artwork using their own artistic style. The child and the student collaborate on a creative idea and share a design experience. ARTpal is just one way that Mt. Sierra College gives back to the community!
