Show off your artistic side in teen painting activity

PaintThe Newcastle Public Library is giving teens a chance to create their own masterpiece at its Summer Reading program activity “Library Leonardos,” set for 2 p.m. Friday, June 29 at 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.

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