Kids Create Art 2018 class schedule

On Jan. 20, Sequim fiber artist Lauralee DeLuca offers young artists an opportunity to create their own wool potholders using wet felting techniques. Youths will start with fluffy wool and with a bit of water, soap and elbow grease they will have a potholder to take home.

On Feb. 17, artist Tricia Murphy has participants design and draw their own robot while exploring the effects of light and shadow; the elements of line, shape, and form; and the principles of symmetry and variety. Robot painting promises to be a fun tempera painting art project.

On March 17, artist Janie Brackney presents Zentangle. The process of creating a Zentangle is a form of “artistic meditation.” The Zentangle Method “increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well-being.”

Closing out the Kids Create Art series for the season, artist Carrie Rodlend celebrates Earth Day on April 21. Participants will consider the idea of earth from space and use tempera paint to recreate the planet.

This program is supported by the Friends of Sequim Library.
