SKETCHBOOK ART CLASS

Wednesdays at 6 pm
November 7th, 14th, 28th


Do you love art books? 
Would you like to create your own? 
How about filling it with drawings? 
If you answered "yes" to one, two or all of the above--have we got an opportunity for you! 

We will be working with pencil and/or pen to achieve a three-dimensional effect on a two-dimensional surface.  Value, perspective and composition will be explored. 
Beginners are welcome.  Those with drawing experience will be encouraged to try colored pencils and other drawing materials.  
Bring a sketchbook and photo references if you have them, otherwise the library will provide them for you.

The class will be led by Lois Hrejsa, graduate of the American Academy of Art where she taught for 18 years.  She currently teaches drawing and watercolor classes at the Log Cabin Center for the Arts in Palos Park.

For adults (15+) You can register for dates below or call 708-749-1050 x120

SCROOGED(1988)
Saturday, December 8th, 2pm

In this modern take on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," Frank Cross (Bill Murray) is a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Claire Phillips (Karen Allen). But after firing a staff member, Eliot Loudermilk (Bobcat Goldthwait), on Christmas Eve, Frank is visited by a series of ghosts who give him a chance to re-evaluate his actions and right the wrongs of his past.

Enjoy some popcorn and a movie at the library!
