If you're looking for something fun to do this summer, look no farther than the Long Prairie Public Library. We have three exciting art programs happening for all ages -- from school-age to adults.
On Monday, July 14, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., Lisa Arnold will teach students how to make mosaics using stained glass and ceramic tile. Each participant will create a small mosaic to take home and will also collaborate on a big community mosaic to be displayed at the library. For ages 8 to adult. Registration required, limit 25.
On Tuesday, July 15, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Abrakadoodle presents Duct Tape and Art Reloaded. Do you love duct tape? Want to learn how to make a duct tape pen? In this fun and crazy class, we'll use duct tape feathers and more to create a crazy duct tape creature pen. For grades K-4, ages 5-10. Registration required.
And on Tuesday, July 22, 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon, learn Charcoal Drawing with Shayann Hoffer. Participants will learn basic charcoal drawing techniques including line, blending, composition, and scale, rendering from a traditional artist still life. For ages 13 to adult. Registration required.
All these events take place at the library and are funded by Minnesota's Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund. For more information, or to register for any of these events, please call the library at 320-732-2332 or online at griver.org.
