Elizabeth Taber Library to celebrate art in April

Mar 14, 2019

MARION — Buttons and comic crafts and graffiti — oh my! The Elizabeth Taber Library will make April its Art Month, and celebrate with a variety of free activities, no registration required. The activities are open to patrons of all ages. 

From April 1 to April 6 the library will focus on button crafts. It has procured a brand new button machine and offers visitors the chance to use it to design custom buttons. The creations will be added to a button mural at the library. 

On April 8 from 3 to 4 p.m. the library will have an event for patrons to learn about street art and design stencils with the library’s 3D printer to make customized graffiti art.

The week of April 16 to 20 will offer comic book fans the chance to turn old comic books into unique crafts. Crafters will be able to make bookmarks, buttons, wall art and more.

On April 22 from 3 to 4 p.m. the library invites creatives to get outside and make some art. Participants can use brushes, sticks, spray bottles, water balloons and more to make wild, drippy, out of this world art. 

The final event of Art Month will be help on April 29 from 3 to 4 p.m. See how artists incorporate natural and urban elements into their designs, then practice turning rocks and other natural materials into fantastic works of art.
