Diamond Painting
Monday, Sep. 27, 4:00pm-6:00pm
Diamond painting is a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers. You will be using an applicator to apply hundreds of sparkling resin rhinestones, one-by-one, on an adhesive color-coded canvas painting. The end result is a vivid, shimmering work of art.
Adults may pair up with a family member or friend that is over 12 years old for this program. Sessions are 1-2 hours long. Your painting will be stored at the library until you are finished. We will seal the painting when completed so it will be safe to transport and hang. You will be able to take your painting home when completed.
Join us  Monday's 4pm-6pm until your painting is completed. Feel free to bring your favorite beverage and a snack! Sponsored by Burlington Public Library.
Zentangle: Relaxing
Monday, Sep. 27, 6pm-7:00pm

Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns called ‘tangles’. You create tangles with combination of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper “tiles” that you can assemble into mosaics.

This is a meditative art form for the artist and non- artist alike. Please bring a beverage and a snack if you would like. We will be meeting downstairs so participants will need to be able to go up and down the stairs. Paper and pens provided.
