Channel artistic talent at painting workshop

PaintingThe McLoud Public Library is giving teens and adults a chance to create their own masterpiece at its Summer Reading program activity “Library Leonardos,” set for a pair of presentations.

The adult program for ages 18 and up will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 23, while the teen program for ages 12 to 17 is set for 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 27, each taking place in the Milburn Room of the library.

The program will be led by Norman’s “Be Wild for Art,” and participants will go through all the steps to paint their own acrylic painting from a provided sample. Professional art instructors will lead the group, helping them in each step of the process.

All supplies will be provided and no previous skill in painting is necessary.

Each class will be capped at 20 painters so registration is required in advance to participate.
