“Soft monsters” for teens
On Wednesday, July 23rd from 10am-2pm, the staff of the Gardiner Public Library is calling all little Frankensteins!  In this creature-creation workshop young adults are invited to bring their imaginary monsters out into the world.  Friendly, scary, or strange, workshop-goers will begin by developing a character through drawings, paintings, and short stories.  They will then be guided through the process of turning their newly created personalities into sewn, stuffed monsters.  Students will learn basic sewing skills, as well as how to construct very simple patterns. Feel free to bring your own sewing notions!  This program will be facilitated by Adrienne Beacham.
Adrienne Beacham stitches together distinct media into strange creations. A fusion of painting, printmaking, drawing, collage, and fiber arts, her work often features monsters and other ridiculous personalities. She is currently working on obtaining her K-12 art ed. certification, and eventually hopes to pursue a career as an elementary art teacher. This event is free and opened to the public.  Space is limited, so pre-registration is mandatory.  Call 582-3312 for more information.  The library is located at 152 Water St, Gardiner.
