Art Club

Join us in the meeting room for our monthly art club meeting!
We will be creating splatter painted universes and studying action painting and creating our own splatter paint creation. You are likely to get paint on you, so wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy.
Each month we will study a different style of art and create 1-2 completed pieces to take home or leave at the library for all to see (you may pick them up at a later date). Ages 4-12

Tuesday Tanglers

Montrose Library is launching a new ongoing program for adults and teens. Every second and fourth Tuesday, starting June 11, come to the library to hang out with fellow tanglers, listen to relaxing music, and practice your “tangling” skills.

What the heck is a tangler? I’m glad you asked. In this context, “tangling” refers to the creation of a Zentangle© — a step-by-step, formalized approach to creating structured designs through the drawing of various patterns. A tangler, therefore, is a person who creates Zentangles.

Come and join the Tuesday Tanglers every 2nd and 4th Tuesday, from 5:30 to 7:00. Listen to soothing music while you tangle your way into a state of relaxation. No prior experience is required and basic informational pamphlets will be available for newbies. Each session will also include two new tangle patterns for you to try, or you can browse through any of the available tangling pattern books for inspiration. Basic supplies will be provided, as well as recommended resources for additional supplies that you can purchase if (when) you find yourself bitten by the tangling bug.

Can’t wait to tangle with you!
