Puppet creator Lisa Daunais featured in our Art Display Case

January 2023

Creator and kindergarten teacher, Lisa Daunais has been using her puppets in the classroom for over 25 years. Nothing pleases her more than seeing her students engaging in a good book while using puppets to enhance their literacy skills. 

She feels puppets engage children and turn story telling into play. Playing, reading, retelling stories, and using imagination to build vocabulary, a key indicator for literacy success.

Artist Leslie Altman, watercolorist, will display her painting in the library's meeting room for the month on January. Ms. Altman has exhibited in many local galleries and her work can be found in homes across the country. 

Leslie began painting more than ten years ago at the suggestion of a friend and she immediately fell in love with watercolor. She works in a studio in Yarmouth Port and en plein air. Her landscapes attempt to capture feeling thorugh color and light. Her subjects include Cape Cod scenes, as well as landscapes from travel abroad and closer to home.
