Studio MPL—Mentor Library’s art club for kids—looked to painter Edvard Munch for inspiration last Monday.

Munch is best known for his Expressionist painting, The Scream. Using Much’s painting as a reference point, the kids drew their own emotions or (if they couldn’t decide which emotion to draw) made their own versions of The Scream.

The young artists used crayons, colored pencils, markers and chalk—whatever best expressed their feelings.

Every month, the kids take on a new art project. They’ve created imaginary friendsmade sun catcherspainted sunsetsweaved 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 May 18 at our Main Branch. You can register for it here.
