Summer Reading Programs

The Summer Reading Program is in full swing for many libraries here in the state of Alabama. We have already been to Vestavia Hills Public Library, Crossville Public Library, Trussville Public Library, and various extended day school programs with our Get Creative summer reading show.

By combining the imagination of storytelling and the artistry of facepainting we provide a unique show that children and adults both can enjoy. Some libraries have included an additional hour of facepainting after the show for more children to join in the fun by being painted as well.

Shows that are coming up include Moody Public Library June 18 at 5:30, Trussville Public Library June 23 at 1:00 for 3rd-5th grade and a Learn to Paint show for Teens at 2:00. We are at various extended day programs for Vestavia Hills School System. We are currently working with other extended day programs on dates for programs for their schools as well.

Henna programs for teens will be held at Vestavia Hills Public Library and also at North Shelby Public Libary.

If you are interested in attending any library shows, make sure you call and check with the individual libraries on what their summer reading program policies and age requirements are. Some programs require that you sign up in advance.

FABAIC was Fabulous

Starshine Faces owner/artist, Kristin Simpson, was able to attend the Face and Body Art International Convention in Orlando, Florida the end of May. She was able to network with so many other artists from around the world and enjoyed seeing and learning new designs and techniques. She competed in the semi professional facepainting competition with about 20 other painters from around the world. Although she didn't place, she learned a lot from the experience.

A variety of photos have been place on our fan website on Facebook. Check out our photos and become a fan while you are there.

Our artists work to continue to bring their art and fun to new levels so that we only offer the best for you, our clients.
