Paint, draw, and build at SML this October

Pumpkin Paint Parties

Come and express your creativity at library programs all this month! We have pumpkin paint parties, introduction to drawing classes, and KEVA maze building workshops for you to get artistic and creative this fall.

Teens and adults are invited to celebrate fall by painting one of autumn’s most recognizable fruits – the pumpkin. Participants will paint a pumpkin on canvas. Those looking forward to Halloween have the option of turning their painted pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern. All supplies for the pumpkin paint parties are provided, but space is limited for each session. Check out the schedule below.

We invite children ages 5 to 10 to show off their creativity with a series of fun maze-building programs. SML’s Make & Go team will visit branches for a hands-on engineering program using KEVA planks, which are wooden blocks used to build structures simply by stacking the planks. Using KEVA blocks and a variety of maze-making apparatuses, children will combine precision engineering to become maze masters and build a 3D puzzle of their own design. See the dates and times for these events below.
