Love to draw? Want to learn some new skills? Starting this Wednesday you can sign up for our virtual teen drawing class with local artist Greg Dugan. Try some blind contour drawing, learn how to draw in two point perspective and make objects look three dimensional. Greg can help you take your art to the next level with fun exercises and pro tips.
Email Diana Farnsworth at email@example.com and let her know you'd like to attend.
Teen Book Club - Conversation About Race
Sign up to read about being black in America this summer. You can choose any of the books featured in our Conversations About Race Booklist or choose to read along as we read Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds & Ibram X. Kendi with the library this August. If you choose Stamped, we’ll get you a copy to read and talk about it as we go in virtual meet ups.
If you choose any of the other books, just check out the book from the library or get a copy yourself. Any YA book by a black author either fiction or nonfiction is great. Once you sign up we’ll send you details on the first meeting and we’ll also get you some snacks to have at home since not everything is as fun virtually.
