The West Pittston Library has a slew of fun events in March for both kids and adults to partake in.
On Tuesday, March 16, the second installment of the library’s new woven art series takes place. This month they will focus on woven cups and bowls. Acquired at kit with all needed supplies at registration.
Tuesday, March 23, is Scribble Day, with a program beginning at 6 p.m. The day was founded in 2019 to share a message of kindness and acceptance to encourage children to create art no matter their ability. Every artist started with a scribble. Register today.
The fun wraps up for the kiddos on Tuesday, March 30, when they learn how to turn a colorful tube sock into an adorable bunny with no sewing.
There’s plenty in store for adults too. On Thursday, March 11, at 6 p.m., try the popular Take and Make series and make a canvas mandala. Relax with this painting project of adding a series of dots to a circular pattern to create a tiny painting perfect for your desk. On Thursday, March 18, you can make your own Easter eggs. Explore more ways to refashion and update old plastic eggs, other than in pastels.
