Did you ever come across the soothing paint-along art shows of Bob Ross? Maybe you'd like to try painting along, but lack the supplies to make it happen? This program by the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library [SDDL] is for you!
Here's how it will work according to Hannah Mason of the SDDL:
"On Saturday, March 6, you'll pick up your paint-along kit from the Library during our open hours, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. The kit will include an 8" by 10" canvas, all the paint colors you need (acrylics, not oils), and a couple of brushes. There is a suggested fee of $5 to cover materials.
At home you'll need to set up a place where you can both paint and watch a screen, and gather some simple supplies such as water and rags.
At 3 p.m. the same day you'll be invited to join a Zoom meeting in which we'll watch an episode of Bob Ross's show, and paint along with him to create "Snowy Solitude". If the timing is not convenient you can also find the show on YouTube and paint along at another time - we suggest you not wait too long, though, as the paints are liable to dry out.
We expect the program to take about an hour, and look forward to having you join us to create your own little 'masterpiece' (results may vary)!
Please call 269-857-8241 during open hours (see website) by Thursday, March 4, to reserve your spot. Supplies are limited and registration will close when all our kits are spoken for."
