Winning entries will be published with the name and school of the artist and then distributed in the library for all to admire and use.
All artists are welcome to join as we announce the winners at the Art Reception Thursday, Nov. 16, 6:30-7:30 pm!

Book Synopsis: In cinematic terms, this dramatic page-turner is Das Boot meets Titanic. Larson has a wonderful way of creating a very readable, accessible story of a time, place, and event. We get three sides of the global story--the U-boat commander, British Admiralty and President Wilson--but what really elevates this book are the affecting stories of individual crew and passengers.(NoveList Plus).
Drop in and create some art with our vast array of art supplies. You can get inspired by the fun project idea provided by us or just do whatever comes into your imagination. Stay an hour or just long enough to make a doodle. Each open studio will contain a short basic lesson about shape, shading, a famous artist or use of art tools. Enjoy the variety and come out with a sketch, a new skill, or maybe even a masterpiece.
