Artist's Date coming up April 23rd

A couple of times a year we invite adult artists to the library to paint together, enjoy each other's company, and watch an artist demonstration. Imagine a lovely spring morning; you are standing at your easel or sitting at a table in our sunny front room among other artists. Warm conversation gradually fades into an embracing communal silence as each artist happily focuses on his or her work. Outside, the college’s dominant male crow struts up to the window and engages in a percussive battle with his reflection in the glass. The college caterer silently slips in with coffee, water, and dessert. As people get hungry, they put down their implements, open their lunches, and conversation picks up again. After lunch, an artist, this time, retired architect Bill Epps, Jr., gives a relaxed demonstration of his watercolor painting technique. Is this for you?

Then mark your calendar for Thursday, April 23rd, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. See you then!

Books as Art, pt 2

More watercolors. Another of my favorite artists is Marc Simont.

He won the Caldecott medal in 1957 for A Tree is Nice. All the pictures in this book are not in color. It was too expensive back then to do every picture in color, so publishers just printed every other spread in color when they made picture books.
