Artist Statement

“Every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

—Pablo Picasso

Fahimeh's Children's Art Classes are a place where young artists, ages 6 through 14, learn to create individual paintings. The realistic approach of this work requires the students to pay attention to light and shadow, color and value, texture and proportion, as well as develop a strong aesthetic sense for composition.

The children's artwork is shown at the Salt Lake City Library in their yearly exhibition. This exhibition has gained popularity due to the quality of work displayed by the participating children's artwork. Their exciting work has captivated viewers all around the valley. Not only is the exhibition itself visually enchanting for viewers, it's exciting for the children as well; they gain a sense of accomplishment – these children's art classes are a great way to enhance their creative ability and self-confidence.

About the library

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2020 for repairs and renovations.

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.

A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
