Zentangle @ the Library on March 3

Zentangle Workshop
Saturday, March 3 at 2 p.m.
Everyone welcome!

What'a Zentangle, you ask? It's like mindful doodling, or meditative drawing.  Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned. It uses lines and curves and bubbles to fill in space.

Grab something to draw with and a piece of scrap paper or back of an envelope. Start by drawing a circle. Divide it into sections, like an orange, but with curvy lines. And the sections don't have to be equal. Now fill each section with a design - maybe bubbles, or tiny boxes. You've got the beginning of a zentangle.

The best thing about zentangles is that anybody can do them; No art experience required! So join the "mindful doodling" fun on the first Saturday in March. Bring your parents, your kids, your grandparents, and yourself.

Register by calling the library at 659-7258. Sponsored by the Books Program and Senator Akshar.

Paint Away your Winter Blues @ the Library!

Escape cabin fever and rediscover your artistic soul at Candor Free Library. This month it’s all about painting and color.

See more Wayne Thiebaud paintings here
ArtSplash! happens on Sunday, February 18 from 1-3 p.m. This month’s project will be inspired by the artist Wayne Thiebaud, known for his paintings of cakes and bright, happy landscapes.

“We’ll be painting in large format with lots of acrylic paint,” says local artist Johanna Husband who is leading the workshop. “It should be messy and fun and bold—and a colorful break from winter!”

ArtSplash! is open to all ages from 8 to 108, though children under 12 will need to be accompanied by an adult.  There is a $5 fee to cover materials. To register, call 607-659-7375 or contact the library. Art Splash! happens on the third Sunday of every month, and each month you get to explore a different artistic medium, from paints to paper art.
