What does the Garden Club do? We hear from interesting speakers about gardening and nature, participate in hands-on workshops and club activities, and support civic projects such as the flower pots on the Town Common and library landscape renovation project. We also bring some joy into the lives of our senior community with Garden Therapy, a flower arranging evening we do with seniors at Atria Longmeadow Place several times a year.

 It doesn’t matter whether you have a “green thumb” or not, if you like plants, come see what the Burlington Garden Club has to offer. Specific meeting topics and dates can be found in the Burlington Garden Club brochure.  Copies of the brochure are in the community information area on the second floor of the library or check out facebook.com/BurlingtonGardenClub.

We at Draw to Grow believe every child is born with the power to create, and that power should be released early and developed wisely. Yes, we teach drawing lessons!
 
Our classes are geared towards teaching creativity for life. We seek to develop and strengthen creative skills, to nurture a sense of self-esteem and confidence as well as awareness of aesthetics and beauty. We actively encourage expression and creative thinking while stimulating children's imagination. We introduce students to the fundamentals of art - figurative drawing, painting, composition, proportions, the color theory, perspective. We also teach about famous artists and art movements. Inspired by well-known paintings to understand the artist’s style, children learn to appreciate art history, recognizing that they are part of an ongoing tradition in art. 

The teacher and founder of Draw to Grow - Elena Belin, holds a Master's Degree in Fine Arts and Art Education from Sofia University. She started the Art Studio in order to share her practical professional skills and love of art. Elena Belin believes that if children look at artworks and think of artists as real people, if they are given the opportunity to explore new ideas, travel through art history, try different materials and techniques, then the exciting world of art will be open to them for the rest of their lives.

The Trustees of the Burlington Public Library welcome artists to exhibit work in the Library at 22 Sears Street. A spacious, well-lit area on the first floor has been designated "The Gallery" and amateur and professional artists of all ages are invited to participate in solo and group juried shows. Each artist is generally assigned a month to exhibit work.

The Library also has glass-fronted locking display cases in the entry and exit lobbies at the front of the building. They are ideal for displaying three-dimensional objects, but can also be used to display posters, photographs, or papers that are mounted on a firm backing.

If you would like to exhibit your work in either The Gallery or the Glass Cases, click here for an application form or pick one up at the Library. Click here for display space procedures and specifications, and here for a picture of the rear wall gallery with dimensions.
