The young artists of Studio MPL—our art club for kids—sharpened their artistic eyes by drawing literal eyes.

Lisa Layton, our library associate who leads the club, showed them the different parts of the eye and different ways to draw them.

The kids then practiced. Some of them used animal eyes as references.

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.

If you have a child who loves art but isn’t old enough for Studio MPL, they can check out our new Studio MPL Jr. at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22. It’s for kids from kindergarten through 2nd grade

You can sign up for Studio MPL on our website or by calling the library at 440-255-8811 ext. 221.
