Daily Art Journaling
Mar 28 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Let’s start the new year by “drawing our days” in a journal. Keep track of your routine and daily life on paper! All skill levels are welcome and encouraged. We’ll focus on creating a habit of drawing everyday.

We’ll build on this daily practice, starting in February through May ( last Saturday of each month, 10am to 12pm) by learning new techniques each month. Come to one or all of the classes. Please bring your own permanent fine tip pen and a journal to get started.

MARCH  You’ll create your own “visual icon” dictionary of symbols that will represent things you do daily/weekly/monthly. It’s a fun exercise and your skill will improve, the more you draw.

RESCHEDULE: Maine Author: Anne Gass
Apr 18 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Please join us in the Main Reading Room for a presentation from local author Anne Gass. Voting Down the Rose: Florence Brooks Whitehouse and Maine’s Fight for Woman Suffrage is based on the life of the author’s great-grandmother, Florence Brooks Whitehouse, published in 2014. Florence was a novelist, painter, vocalist, and mother of three sons when she first joined the suffrage movement in 1914.  “We explore Florence’s life up to 1914 and her leadership in moving suffrage forward in Maine, joining forces with national leader Alice Paul in a desperate, last-ditch effort to ensure that the Maine legislature ratified the 19th Amendment that would give women voting rights.” Slides of historic photos accompany the presentation, which lasts about 40 minutes. Pre-registration is requested but not required.
