Literary Art: Altered Books – May 17th at 5:30pm

An art group for adults. We started two months ago by creating pockets and secret hiding places in old books. Last month we continued that work and shared the art created in our books. We had beautiful collages, watercolor art, pressed flowers, and even art created by tea bag stains! We also learned how to fold books into words. We will have the supplies to continue altered book art but any kind of art is welcome. This is a relaxed space with lots of jokes and talking while we share art and stories. 


A new walking group is coming soon!
