Juneau – For young dog lovers only! Local artist Nobu Koch will lead two free workshops for kids to explore drawing techniques and learn about some notable dogs in Alaska’s history on Saturday, February 3, in the classroom at the Fr. Andrew P. Kashevaroff building at 395 Whittier Street. Participants can bring photos of their own dogs or draw from a selection of dog photos from the Library’s Historical Collections. The morning session, from 10:00 am to noon, is designed for children ages 6-9. The afternoon session, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm, is geared for youth ages 9-12. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum and is partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues. These workshops are free, but registration is recommended by calling the Alaska State Museum at 465-2901 or visiting Youth Art Activities page.

Nobu Koch is a freelance artist and illustrator with a BFA in animation and visual effects from the Academy of Art University. She is the co-illustrator of Mary’s Wild Winter Feast and currently works as the publication specialist with the Baby Raven Reads program at Sealaska Heritage Institute.

The Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum support free lifelong learning activities for Alaskans. The youth activity program is designed to provide young people with opportunities to work with professional artists to learn artistic techniques and engage with art, history, and the collections of the Library, Archives, and Museum.
