In April, the kids from Studio MPL painted sunsets. Last week they made sun catchers.

I think they’re working on some sort of solar motif.

If you haven’t heard of Studio MPL, it’s Mentor Library’s art club for kids in first through fifth grade. They meet on the third Monday of each month.

Each of the kids could choose what color material they would fill their sun catchers with.

In past months, the kids have learned everything from weaving to inking to how to use fluorescent paints. They’ve made paper cutouts in the style of Matisse and even channeled Jackson Pollock.

Studio MPL is going to take a break for the summer but it’ll be back in September. For more photos from Studio MPL’s most recent session, go to our Facebook page.

Speaking of summer, kids, teens and adults can start signing up for our Summer Reading Program on May 31. This year, a lot of our programs have a scientific theme. And, as always, you can win a lot of cool prizes—just for reading.
