The Book to Art Club
Read. Talk. Make.
Open to Teens and Adults
The Book to Art Club combines reading, discussion, and art-making!
Join us on second Thursdays, 6 - 7:30pm, in The ARTery at John Michael Kohler Arts Center, September - May. In July, we will meet at Bookworm Gardens for a special summer session. Participants will read the selected book, then create art projects during the discussion to further engage with the literature. The process of art-making is more important than the final product!
Book club book copies may be picked up at Mead Public Library's 2nd floor desk. Art supplies will be provided, but participants may bring their own materials. Follow us on Goodreads, Pinterest!, and Facebook. See what is happening with other Book to Art Clubs around the world on The Book to Art Club Blog.
