Teens


Art Studio

SplatterTuesday, September 8, October 13, and November 10

Learn about a different Art Movement each month at our new Teen Art Studio! Practice with different techniques, meet fellow artists, and enjoy snacks at each event. Dress accordingly: we will be getting messy! Open to teens in grades 6-12. Call the library at 330-343-6123 to register or for more information.

In September, we’ll be talking about Abstract Expressionism and making Splatter Paint Art. This event will be help outside, weather permitting. Teens should definitely wear old clothes for this one!

In October, we’ll be talking about Impressionism, which is all about the fleeting nature of light. We’ll be practicing¬†some landscapes with oil pastels.

Finally, in November, we’re traveling way back in time to talk about Mesopotamian art. We’ll use clay to make small relief slabs that tell a story.

Have a favorite artist or art movement you want to see represented? Email Liz at strausel@doverlibrary.org and share it with her! If this series continues, she’ll use your suggestions in the Spring!
