Novel Art Workshop For Kids On March 26

Do you want to enter a project in the Ligonier Valley Library's third Novel Art event? Are you short on time or ideas? Then the Novel Art Clinic for Kids is for you!

Novel Art Clinic for Kids on March 26 from 3:00 to 7:00 pm in the library's community room.

Projects will take approximately 2.5 hours to finish. Parents are welcome to stay. Finished projects will be entered in the Novel Art Student Auction on Thursday, April 30.

Cost for materials is $5.00 payable the day of the clinic. You may register by completing the Novel Art Clinic for Kids form (fillable PDF) and returning it to the library. More information is on the form.

Imagine your favorite book being thrown into a landfill. Just tossed. The Ligonier community is saving books from this fate and giving them a new life by creating art to support the Ligonier Valley Library. Novel Art is easy to join and no fee is required. It's also for everyone - adults, professional artists and kids.

Student Auction is on Thursday, April 30.

Novel Art Party & Auction is on Friday, May 1.
