Calling All Katy Area Artists!!

Paint PalettAre you an artist? Do you want to be? Are you just an art lover?

The Maud Marks Library will be celebrating all local artists during the month of April! Throughout the month, we will be showcasing paintings, drawings, and sculptures from local artists right here in the Katy area. The entire community is invited to come visit the library to view the artwork and create their own. We will be hosting art workshops throughout the month of April for our Adult DIY workshop, Wednesday Wonders, TeenMaker, and more! This year, we will have a juried art show with prizes for elementary (ages 6-10), junior high (ages 11-14), and adult (ages 15 and up). Keep an eye on this place right here for more information as we get closer to the big exhibition!
