Taber Library celebrates art month

Apr 4, 2022

MARION — April is Art Month at the Elizabeth Taber Library, 8 Spring St. The month will feature weekly events highlighting unique materials and artists. 

Week one will feature glass art with Deenie Pacik, at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 7.

Participants will create fused glass pendants or magnets with colorful pre-cut glass. Spaces are limited; call to sign up at the library. All ages are invited, but participants 9 to 12 must have adult supervision to participate.

Drop in the first week of April to make glass bead jewelry in the style of Dale Chihuly and find craft activities for younger kids that celebrate sculpture making.

During the second week of April, stop by anytime to explore the world of paper crafts, including origami, quilling and silhouette making, among other options.  

An adult and teen nature mandala workshop will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 21. Artist Beth Adoette will help participants  create and photograph nature mandalas to explore the elements that represent spring.  Call to sign up for this art workshop.

 A drop-in natural photography project will be offered the third week of April. Participants can make art with objects in and around the library, then take and print photos of that creation from their phones or with one of the library’s instant cameras.

A drop-in postcard craft will be held the last week of April. Those attending can create their own postcards in the style of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Blank postcards, markers, paint, crayons, and other tools will be available to create postcards.

A pop-up outdoor art gallery will be featured Saturday, April 30 outside the library. Art created in one of the month’s workshops can be brought in, or new creations can be submitted.
