October Happenings

Children’s Art Opportunities
Would your child like to participate in the 37th Annual Friends Fine Art Exhibition and Sale? This year, young artists will be able to exhibit and sell their artwork at the Art Show. Your child will not only learn about creating artwork, but also will gain experience with the business side of art. The Friends Fine Art Exhibition and Sale is November 10-12. To prepare for the show, we are offering two art classes in the month of October. The first one will be on October 7 at 10 a.m. in room 204. Your child will be creating foam prints with artist Brenda Buckingham-Ehrman. The second class will be on October 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Your child will create a canvas painting with acrylic paints. Angela Barnes, who is an art teacher at Suncrest Elementary School, will be their instructor. Space is limited. Please register online at myfcpl.org/calendar or call the library at 765-654-8746. Questions? Please contact Jamie Anderson janderson@myfcpl.org.

The Jason Wells Band and Friends will be performing on Saturday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Elizabeth O’Rear Skanta Theatre. Tickets are $5.00 for this performance. You may purchase your tickets at the library or over the phone with a credit card.
