Studio MPL Jr., our club for artists in kindergarten through second grade, celebrated the colors of the season at their last meeting.

They used crepe paper to make it look like a single leaf had all the shades of autumn.

Then they added artistic flourishes to their frames, drawing pastel swirls of wind around their leaves.

Studio MPL Jr. is our newest art club. It’s for children in kindergarten through second grade. (If your child is in third through sixth grade, they can join our original Studio MPL.)

Every month, the kids in our art clubs take on a new art project. They’ve sketched live modelscreated imaginary friendsmade sun catcherspainted sunsetsweavedtried out pointillism and even garnered inspiration from Jackson Pollock.

Our next Studio MPL Jr. meeting is 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at our Main Branch. Meanwhile, Studio MPL will meet the following Monday on Dec. 19. We’re making Christmas ornaments!

Both clubs are free to join. However, we do ask that you register beforehand. You can sign up online or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
