Long before coloring books got super-popular, painting or drawing over a photograph was the only way to give it color.
The process goes by a few different names, including hand-coloring or overpainting, but it’s not all that different your old coloring books. (Well, maybe it’s a little fancier. Felice Beato used to do it, after all.)
Our Time Travelers Club is going to try their hands at hand-coloring photographs at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at our Lake Branch.
All teens are welcome to join our Time Travelers Club. Each month, we tackle classic games and crafts from different eras.
So far we’ve played old-school video and board games and tried string art. In December, we’ll celebrate a very vintage Christmas.
You can sign up for the Time Travelers Club online or call us at 440-257-2512.
