Board Member Lu Hopkins taught 6 participants the concept of patterns vs randomness through examples and by making a beaded bracelet. Everyone had a great time learning how beads applied using a pattern look vs how different types or colors of beads affect the look, how to follow a beading pattern, learning how to run the string through existing and new beads, and then creating a cool bracelet! The photo shows an almost completed bracelet by one of the students in the class.
This was our first critical thinking art class of many! Next month Board Member Kristen McReynolds will be teaching about the color wheel, then participants will decide if it matters, and learn how to knit a scarf while applying what they learned! The classes are free. Come into the library or check out our website to sign up!
The Discovering How Art Can Affect Our Lives program was made possible in part by a a Peggy Barber Tribute Grant from the American Library Association’s Public Programs Office.
