Watercolor Painting in the Library

Do you have the winter blues and need something fun to brighten your day? On the other hand, maybe you love winter, and you’d like to paint a picture of a beautiful snow scene. We have a table set up, for the month of January, for you to try your hand at watercolor painting.

The paper, paints, and water are waiting for you at the Clermont College Library. Stop by and see what you can create.

Student Art by Scott Hempleman

Spring semester the Clermont College Library is pleased to exhibit the art of Scott Hempleman.  Scott’s colorful paintings stem from years of drawing fun, imaginative cartoons. Encouraged by his grandfather as well as art teachers at Clermont College, Scott’s vibrant works display a study in color relationship and contrast.

Come check out Scott Hempleman’s work in the library’s Student Art Spotlight through spring 2018.  As always, we thank Fine Arts faculty Kelly Frigard and Kim Taylor for their dedicated support of the Student Art Spotlight since 2015.

Games at the Clermont College Library

Free time between classes? Need to relax for a bit? Stop by the Clermont College Library.

We’ve set up a game table, where you can play Jenga, Battleship, or Connect Four.

Playing games helps decrease stress and can improve critical thinking. Spending time having fun may be the boost needed to get back to that research paper or clear your mind to study for a test.

As the semester winds down, take a half-an-hour and enjoy some healthy competition.

Second Floor Selfies at Clermont

Clermont College Library is sponsoring a passive program to direct attention to the second floor of the library. Our second floor is the only quiet study space on campus. And we want students to know about it. Since selfies have become a fun part of society, we’re asking students to visit Clermont College library’s second floor, snap a selfie, then email the photo to penny.mcginnis@uc.edu between October 5-29. We’ll share them on Twitter and Facebook.

A random drawing will determine which student wins a $25 Amazon gift card.

We also welcome administration, faculty and staff to send a photo or post one on Twitter @ucclermontlib. We are using the #SecondFloorSelfie tag on Twitter. Check it out!

New Info Monitor in the Clermont College Library, Courtesy of BLT Department

Friends,

I’m so happy to announce that our new info monitor in the library‘s entryway has arrived.

This monitor, graciously sponsored by UC Clermont’s BLT (Business, Law, and Technology) Department, will help communicate the library’s programs and offerings with our campus community.  Best of all, it’s visible from both the hallway and from inside the library.  Plus, we  think it really brightens up the space.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks, BLT! We <3 our new info monitor.

Let’s make fall 2017 a great semester, together!

Student Art Spotlight at Clermont College Library

This semester the library is proud to exhibit the art of Terri Teague.  Ms. Teague, who serves as lab manager for the Fine Arts programs at UC Clermont, has been a friendly fixture around our campus for many years.  In fact, she’s helped to install many of the beautiful art exhibits around our campus, including those in the art gallery and the library.

Ms. Teague’s exhibit includes fourteen individual portraits in a variety of mediums—pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and pastel.  In her artist statement, she credits the gifted teachers at UC Clermont with teaching her to draw and paint, “open[ing] my eyes to a new way of looking at the world.”

Come check out Terri Teague’s work in the library’s Student Art Spotlight through December 2017.  And, as always, we thank Fine Arts faculty Kelly Frigard and Kim Taylor for their dedicated support of the Student Art Spotlight since 2015.
