Skateboard enthusiasts will have a chance to take part in free “art board” programs at all 18 Louisville Free Public Library sites starting in April.

Staff from the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, along with some local artists, will provide free instruction for participants ages 8–14 who will be introduced to special art techniques and have the opportunity to create a unique piece of skateboard art.

Final art pieces will be included in exhibitions at several local libraries in May. For more information on this program, including dates and locations, visit

Also in April, the Library — in partnership with Technology Association of Louisville Kentucky, Marwood Veneer, and Open Source Skateboards — will host a series of three-day,skateboard-building workshops for middle schoolers, to be held at three library locations. The sessions will be taught by certified instructors, and participants will have a chance to design and create their own, usable skateboards. All supplies are included.

Skateboard build sessions will take place at the Bon Air (April 4–6), Iroquois (April 5–7), and Southwest (April 6–8) libraries. Space is limited to 10 participants at each location, and the young adults should plan on attending all three days of the workshop. Parental permission is required. For information, call Kate Schiavi at 502-574-1620, or email to register.
