Get Creative!!

                                                                   Local Artist Bennie Wood

Thanks to the Arts Council Northeast and TX Commission on the Arts, the library has had the pleasure of hosting several art classes taught by local artist Bennie Wood. Adults have enjoyed taking her “Watercolor Experience” classes, and the paintings created were phenomenal. Ms. Wood has been awarded funds allowing children to attend various art classes free of charge. In May, the younger artists created three art projects, each using a different medium. At the conclusion of the series of classes, the library held a reception honoring our participants. The children delighted in displaying their creative works of art to friends and family.

The next art classes, so called “Art Wednesdays”, are specifically for young people aged 11 to 14. The dates are July 18 and 25. Remember, these classes are free of charge, but require a $5.00 refundable deposit to reserve your seat at the work table. Come join all of your artsy friends and create a masterpiece!

Coming up for adults interested in art classes, Ms. Wood will be teaching a series called “Watercolor Experience #4” beginning in August.  These classes will take place on Saturdays, August 4, 11, 18, 25.  They will begin at 12:30 and end at 3:30 in the afternoons.  More details regarding these classes will be available closer to the start date for the classes.  Be sure to check our Facebook page calendar for all Ms. Wood’s upcoming classes.  Information about supplies and cost will be available in late July at the following number:  817-222-7786.  We hope you will join us for a wonderful creative learning experience!!
