KNITWITS: Start the New Year right and do those things you’ve always been meaning to try. How about picking up some of those tossed aside knitting projects or learning how? Whether you are a beginner or an experienced knitter, come join the fun as we learn together. Please bring your own supplies. This is an informal gathering to finish those unfinished projects or perhaps get some ideas for beginning some new ones. We’ll cozy up in the Atkinson Room of the library, share some laughs, drop a stitch or two, and make some new friends. All experience levels and ages welcome. This is not a class, but we have enough experienced knitters who will guide you and get you started. Don’t delay—come on in!
ADULT COLORING & PAINTING: If you think coloring for adults is all the rage, you are right. This current form of recreation is not only fun but also healthy for you. Research outcomes of those who color or participate in some form of visual arts are numerous. Some common therapeutic outcomes associated with adult coloring are: stress reduction, enhanced relaxation and increased concentration. The popularity of adult coloring is also due to the fact that it provides a creative outlet for all regardless of one’s artistic abilities and experience.
Kimball Library will be starting an adult coloring and painting session on Thursdays, from 10:30 – 12:30 starting January 7th. It will be a time set aside for those who wish to work on painting (must bring your own paint and supplies) or coloring. There will be limited coloring books and supplies on hand for class participants or individuals may bring their own books, color pencils or gel pens. Please join us and devote some time to unwind.
Registration is required. This is for ages 18 and up.
