Art Weekend Dec 15 & 16

Are you looking for an opportunity to stretch your imagination? Maybe splash paint on canvas or ink on a page?

Candor Free Library has two fun arts workshops happening next weekend.
On Saturday, December 15 there's "Painting with Sandy". For those who attended November's workshop, this will be an opportunity to work on a second panel for a holiday-themed painting. Or to explore another aspect of the theme, "not a creature was stirring".

Painting with Sandy runs from 1:30-3 pm. The workshop is FREE - call or drop by the library to register. Funding through the BOOKS Program and Senator Akshar.

For those seeking a dash of hands-on science with their art experience, on Sunday, December 16 Johanna is leading an ArtSplash! workshop. Once again, we'll be working with alcohol inks on yupo paper - this time with an eye to creating holiday cards. People in last month's class discovered that alcohol inks react much differently than other media, and yupo paper has some interesting properties. Some of the questions explored include:

  • how do alcohol inks behave on a non-absorbent surface?
  • what happens if you add a second layer?
  • can you do a ink-water wash?
  • do inks create boundaries?
  • what happens if you paint light colors over dark?
ArtSplash! with Johanna runs from 1-3 pm. The workshop is FREE. There is a class limit so call Johanna at 659-7375 to register. Funding thanks to FLLS Outreach mini-grant.

Art Classes in November

Days are shorter. Skies are gray. And it's cold outside - which means it's perfect weather for an Art Class at the Library.

On Sunday, November 18 it's Art with Johanna. Artists will create abstract art using alcohol inks on Yupo paper. “This class is all about enjoying the media and having fun watching what the alcohol inks do on the paper,” says Johanna.

For one, the paper is special. Yupo paper doesn’t wrinkle, tear, or buckle under use. Then there’s the ink. Alcohol inks are bold and vibrant – and react a bit unexpectedly on Yupo paper. Alcohol inks are also permanent. They don’t wash out of fabrics, so make sure to bring an artist’s smock or wear clothes you don’t care too much about.

Class runs from 1-3 pm and it's FREE! Class size is limited, so call 659-7375 to register or contact the library. Funding thanks to FLLS Outreach mini-grant.
