Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Combine art and creativity at the library

Amanda Mongolo
Special to the Sun

It's back! Our most popular Idea Box Paints & Pastels is back at the Incline Village Library!

This Idea Box is full of acrylic paints and oil pastels, and all the tools you would need to create your very own masterpiece.

Included are tutorial videos that will walk your through some beautiful landscapes, or set up your own still life. We will be hosting this Idea Box through the end of February, with a special program being held on Feb. 1 from 4-5 p.m., featuring local artists Shahri Masters (teaching with acrylics) and Anastasia Chantler-Lang (teaching with pastels) — all ages are welcome, and we will supply all the materials.

You can find books and videos about creating art using all different types of media at each one of our libraries. See you at the library!
