Come learn to watercolor!
During this time of social distancing, the Young Artist’s Studio is coming to you. Local artist Carol Farnum will help you learn the basics of watercolor painting! She will lead the group through techniques as you make our own bookmarks. Prepare to get a little messy! You will want to have paper, watercolor paints, a paintbrush, a cup of water and scissors to follow Carol’s instruction during the program.
The Young Artist’s Studio is a series of art workshops sponsored by The Urbana Free Library and The Urbana Arts & Culture Program designed to offer youth an opportunity to explore the arts. All events in the series are free and open to the public. For children ages 5 to 11 and their families.
Please register here through the Library’s event calendar. The library will email a link and a phone number to the email you provide in your registration so that you can join online with Zoom.
Haven’t heard of Zoom? Here’s the scoop:
Zoom is a videoconferencing program that allows everyone participating to see each other (and anything in the background!) and speak with each other using a computer or smart phone. Participants without a computer or smart phone can call in to the program like a conference call, but will not be able to see the other participants.
Though this program is online, the Library reminds everyone to be as courteous and kind as they would be at a program in the Library.
