Opportunities for exploring and cultivating the creative mind is central to the library’s strategic plan. Through classes, exhibits, and theatre productions, we encourage all ages to explore and discover a passion for art. Art education classes are made available to children and adults. Children’s Art Enrichment classes are held the second Saturday of every month. All children’s classes are free. Adult classes are held at least once a month. There is an Open Art Studio held every other month from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. The Quilters Guild meets every Monday at 9 a.m.

Art enrichment classes are partly funded through an Indiana Arts Commission operating support grant administered by the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.
