Making art like the masters

Emma seeks inspiration from Frida Kahlo during our art program on Tuesday.

We hosted a special art program on Tuesday where kids picked up tips from four masters: Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, and Claude Monet.

The young artists learned techniques innovated by the painters, experimenting with cubism, impressionism and more. They also got to work with different tools, including watercolor, pastels and acrylics.

If your child loves art but missed our program, don’t fret. We have more creative programs coming this week.

Our Masterpieces at Main Art Club is open to all kids (eight to 12 years old.) And you don’t need to paint like Picasso or sculpt like Michelangelo to participate. However, to get the most out of the club, the kids will need to be able to work independently. Also, art can get messy, so dress appropriately.

Our next meeting is at 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 14. You can register online for your children to join or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

In the meantime, art lovers have other clubs they can check out at the library:

  • Studio MPL combines a fun themed art project with a coordinating scavenger hunt through our Lake Branch. Kids can walk in and participate anytime between 3 and 7 p.m. on Monday, March 18.
  • Kids aren’t the only ones who can get creative. Adults can join us for our Crafty Adults Club. Each month, we’ll explore new mediums and crafts. We’ll meet next at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, at our Lake Branch.
