I’m bringing another art class to the library! This time it’s upcycling used magazines , books, and newspapers from the library to make vibrant Spring collages. The class is on Sunday, April 9th at 12:30PM. There are still spots open! If you’re in the New Castle County, Delaware area call 302-834-4148 to register. As with the non-profit nature of the library, it’s free to attend and all supplies will be provided.
In preparation for the class, I put together a collage of the facade of the Delaware City Library with a blossoming cherry tree. See it below in the slideshow along with flyers for the class!
I was invited to bring the silhouette class I’ve done for one of the local Delaware libraries across the border to Maryland. It was a lovely drive down 95 South to Cecil County Library: Rising Sun Branch.The library is situated in Rising Sun, Maryland. The space was cozy, but open. The environment felt warm and inviting. Both the library staff and patrons were amicable and receptive. In other words, the perfect climate for a fun art program. Learning silhouette cutting can have a bit of a learning curve. I was pleasantly surprised how well everyone did given it was their first time attempting cut paper portraiture. More importantly, they had fun while doing it. We ended the Valentine’s Day themed session with a sweet treat- chocolate candy hearts.
Thank you Cecil County Library: Rising Sun Branch!
I have two fantastic art programs I’m bringing to local northeast libraries. And because they’re offered through the public library they’re FREE.
