The beauty of bad art

Kids made some of the most deliciously terrible, delectably awful, and best bad art imaginable at our library.

Our young artists used everything from egg cartons to paints to dried spaghetti to make their dreadful masterpieces.

And you can revel in their creativity. Stop by the children’s area at our Main Branch to see their artwork while it’s on display this month.

If you have a young artist in your family, they’ll love our Studio MPL club.

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

The club is open to all kids from third through sixth grade. The next meeting is at 4 p.m. Monday, March 20.

If you have a child who loves art but isn’t old enough for Studio MPL, they can check out our Studio MPL Jr. at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, at our Main Branch. 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.
