“Beneath the Surface” is the theme for the teen Summer Program for 2013 and the library is kicking it off with a mural painting project for teens during Spring Break. The workshop will be held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, March 18, 19 and 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. The workshop is totally free and open to all teens. Come join us for three evenings of fun, and show your creative side. Talent is not a requirement for the workshop but having fun is.
Lyn Taylor, planning coordinator for the Shortgrass Institute is the instructor for the workshop. In the workshop teens will work together to create a mural to be put on display in the library. Various media will be available so if your “thing” is watercolor, we have it, if it is acrylics, we have that too. You name it, we probably have it.
Lyn has been an instructor for the Shortgrass Institute for a few years now but this is her first workshop working with the teens on the mural. Lyn brings a wealth of talent and education with her to the program. Lyn’s education includes attending the Colorado Institute of Art in Visual Communications and Graphic Design, Cameron University and Southwestern State University. She has attended numerous seminars and workshops across the country with such noted artists as Doug Dawson and Ramon Killey. She is a member of the CPSA, Hawaii Watercolor Society. Lynda has also used her artistic talents to create illustrated brochures, designed ad campaigns, stationery and menus for restaurants in Honolulu and provided illustrations and brochures for technical seminars and products. Lynda also does freelance work for Hallmark.
