Library to Hold Student Acrylics Class

Would your budding artist like to be a part of Friends Fine Art Exhibition and Sale? The Friends of the Frankfort Library and the Art Show Committee would like to give young artists an opportunity to learn about being a working artist, including displaying and selling their artwork. Their pieces will be displayed outside of the Children’s Department and will be for sale during the Friends Art Show, Nov. 10-12.

A portion of each sale will go to the Friends of the Library. Angela Barnes, Suncrest Elementary Art Teacher, will teach an intro to acrylics class for students in grades 3-8 on Sat. Oct. 14 from 10 a.m.- noon. Each student will create an acrylic painting on a 9” x 12” canvas. The work the students create will be entered into the November Art Show, with the artist’s permission. This class is free, but space is limited. Please register online at, in person at the library, or by calling 765-654-8746.

Barnes has taught a painting class the last three summers at the Purdue Learning Network. She attended University of Evansville where she received her undergraduate degree in Fine arts. She went on to get her teaching license through Indiana Wesleyan and Purdue University.
