Tompkins County Public Library, Creek Walk
Type Family


Children of all ages and their families are invited to a drop-in outdoor art workshop at Tompkins County Public Library with Museum educators Carol Hockett, Andrea Murray, and Elizabeth Yearsley. Make your own unique work of art inspired by the Johnson's collection from around the world!

For this session, we'll create works of art inspired by Chinese calligraphy. We'll grind and mix our own ink, learn to hold calligraphy brushes, and practice writing special characters. We'll also have huge paintbrushes for experimenting with sidewalk painting!

The Creek Walk is the grassy yard between TCPL and Urban Outfitters. Feel free to bring your own blankets or cushions for sitting on. Program is weather dependent and won't proceed in heavy rain or strong wind.
