About the Canvas Project…

Today we are watching the weather, but have one more workshop with Pat Vance.

Everyone is invited to create an art piece inspired by Wisdom in Nature, to contribute to the Kickapoo Valley Reserve’s Creative Community Canvas Project

fundraiser. Pat has agreed to start at 1:30pm today. It’s a drop-in program, so after school time can work for families too. We have the 6"x6" canvases available and some supplies but you can also bring anything imaginable to add:) If you have already picked up a canvas & would like to finish it here, that’s great. If you do not use your canvas that’s okay, please return it. Remember, your work of art must be back at the Library or the Reserve by next Monday, Feb. 26th. We have some amazing canvases on display already, come see them. What a fun program!

Soldiers Grove Library News

Greetings Everyone, It’s February and we’re on our way out of winter!

This month the Library is collaborating with the Kickapoo Valley Reserve http://kvr.state.wi.us/Home in support of their "Creative Communities Canvas Project". This is an inspiring fundraiser for the Reserve, which costs nothing for you to participate and has WISDOM as its theme. Participants receive a 6-inch-by 6-inch canvas to artistically interpret the word Wisdom asit pertains to nature. The art canvases will ultimately be sold through an online auction with proceeds going to the KVR Education and Events Program. Canvases are available to pick up at the KVR Visitor Center or here at the Soldiers Grove Library, to be returned by Feb 26th, either at the Reserve or the Library. Next week we will have two opportunities to work with Pat Vance, a local artist and painter, to create a canvas for the project. Workshops with Pat: Monday, Feb 19th, 1:30 pm and Tuesday, Feb 20 at 10am.

Bring some paints/pencils, fibers/collage materials or whatever supplies you can imagine for your project and we’ll have some fun creating together! Don’t think you can’t be artistic. Yes you can and there’s wisdom in that:)
