Get your kids together for some library activities where they can (quietly) have a ball!:
Tween Craft- Decoupage, Wednesday, March 13, 6 p.m. White Plains Public Library, 100 Martine Ave., White Plains, NY. Learn the thrifty art of decoupage with Westchester artist Susan Ordahl. Decoupage is the art of decorating by gluing paper or cutout magazine pages to an object like a small box or an item of furniture. You can bring an item from home to decoupage or you can learn by decoupaging the cover of a notebook that will be provided to you at the workshop. You can also bring your favorite magazines (although we will have plenty for you to use) or color copies of favorite photos. This is a thrifty craft because it re-uses items that you can find around the house. For middle school students, grades 6-8. Registration is not required but greatly appreciated. Snacks will be served. For more information, call 422-1480.
