Darwin R. Barker Library to present “Meditation in Paint” Tuesday

The Darwin R. Barker Library, 7 Day St., Fredonia will present a “Meditation in Paint” activity on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. This will be a peaceful painting experience guided by local artist D’Arsie Manzella. Participants will listen to music and allow their brushes to move paint across paper in a non-structured way. Painting in this way allows the mind to rest and eyes to delight in colors, lines and forms that emerge.

Explore with watercolor media and focus on the process instead of the result.

Registration is required. Space is limited to 10 participants, so register soon!

To register, email barker@netsync.net, call 672-8051 or stop at the circulation desk.
