Ruthie had held her splits pose for more than nine minutes, and she was beginning to ache.

Talk about suffering for your art.

The young artists in Studio MPL—Mentor Public Library’s art club for kids—practiced drawing live models during their most recent meting.

They didn’t have to look hard for models either. Several of the club members, including Ruthie, volunteered to pose for their friends.

Artists of all kinds often use live models to create realistic pictures, paintings and sculptures of people; so the exercise provided valuable practice to the kids in Studio MPL.

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

Studio MPL meets on the third Monday of each month. If your kid likes art—any kind of art—they can join the fun!

Next month’s session will be March 21 at our Main Branch.

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