A very creative Christmas with Studio MPL

Our young artists turned styrofoam, tongue depressers, and other art supplies into charming Christmas scenes.

Artists don’t need an excuse to create. You give them some supplies—almost any supplies—and they’ll make something with them.

The young artists of our Studio MPL program tested their creativity this week. We gave them a mishmash of art supplies, including Styrofoam, fabric, plastic snowflakes, wooden pallets and more. They used them to create ornaments and charming Christmas scenes.

Every month, the kids of Studio MPL take on a new art project. They’ve sketched live artistscreated imaginary friendsmade sun catcherspainted sunsetsweaved, tried out pointillism and even garnered inspiration from Jackson Pollock.

The club is open to all kids from third through sixth grade. It meets on the third Monday of each month. Our next meeting is Jan. 16.

If you have a child who loves art but isn’t old enough for Studio MPL, they can check out Studio MPL Jr. at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12, at our Main Branch. It’s for kids from kindergarten through 2nd grade
