Painting Pets Virtua
All Locations
Saturday, Jan. 16, 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Join us for a fun, virtual art class on Zoom! Local artist Linda Knoll will show you how to see your pet through an artistic lens and draw or paint a picture of it using shapes, lines, and textures. You will work from a favorite photo, printed if possible. You can use any medium you like -- paint, pastel, pencil or whatever is handy. She will show you how to use graphite paper with a printed photo to get an accurate likeness.

Registration is required. A limited number of art kits are available, and may be picked up at the Modesto Library by registered participants starting Monday, January 11. Call 209-558-7814 for more information.

Tuesday, Jan. 26, 6:00 pm
The UCCE Stanislaus County Master Gardeners are hosting a fun evening on Zoom all about local butterflies and how to attract them to your garden. Did you know? Butterflies need more than just pretty flowers. Our speaker, Ellen Zagory, will tell you not only which plants attract adult butterflies, but which plants you'll want to add to your garden to provide food for their caterpillar larvae. Visit http://ucanr.edu/butterflies/2021 and sign up by Jan 26 at 4 pm to receive a link sent the morning of the class.
