Making Valentines with the club that makes masterpieces

Our Masterpieces at Main Art Club got in the spirit of the holiday.

Our Masterpieces at Main Art Club got in the spirit of the holiday.

Our Masterpieces at Main Art Club had a timely theme this week, making valentines!

We opened the craft closet and kids used paint, markers, construction paper, newspaper and even yarn to make valentines for their loved ones.

Our club is open to all kids (eight to 12 years old.) And you don’t need to paint like Picasso or sculpt like Michelangelo to participate. However, to get the most out of the club, the kids will need to be able to work independently. Also, art can get messy, so dress appropriately.

Our next meeting is at 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 14. You can register online for your children to join or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

In the meantime, art lovers have other clubs they can check out at the library:

  • Studio MPL is returning in a new place but with a familiar face. Ms. Lisa will guide children through different artists and techniques. Now at the Lake Branch! The next program will be 4 p.m. on Monday, March 18. Call or register online to attend.
  • Kids aren’t the only ones who can get creative. Adults can join us for our Crafty Adults Club. Each month, we’ll explore new mediums and crafts. We’ll meet next at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, at our Lake Branch.
