Tweens ages 10 to 13 can use their STEAM art skills to make monogram tissue art at the Nicholson Memorial Library System’s Tween Scene events in September.
Tween Scene is a program series designed for youth ages 10 through 13, which consists of activities related to fun and interesting themes. Participants also receive book recommendations based on each theme. The program takes place twice a month at various library locations on Thursday evenings.
Participants at the September events will make their own monogram art using canvas, bleeding tissue paper, and stickers. Tweens will use the stickers to place their initial in the middle of a canvas. Next, they will cover the canvas in tissue paper and spray it with water so that the tissue paper colors bleed onto the canvas. When the tissue paper and stickers are removed, the tweens will have unique pieces of monogramed art to hang in their rooms.
The first Tween Scene takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 5, at the South Garland Branch Library, with the second occurring at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 12, at the North Garland Branch Library.
The South Garland Branch Library is located at 4845 Broadway Blvd., at Oates Road. The North Garland Branch Library is located at 3845 N. Garland Ave., at Apollo Road.
