Portage Library to offer watercolor class for children June 2

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library will offer a watercolor class for young children and elementary age students from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 2.

"Let’s Play with Color!" will be presented by artist Sun-Young Park. Participants will squeeze and spray water colors onto paper and learn how to use tissue paper to create different effects. Kids will experience the beauty of mixed colors spreading on the paper as they see their work turn into flowers, animals, dinosaurs or whatever they imagine it to be.

Sun-Young Park studied oriental fine art in South Korea earning her Bachelors degree in Fine Arts in 1996 and a Masters of Arts in 1999. The subject of her works comes primarily from nature; flowers, butterflies, wind, and mountains. She uses traditional oriental painting materials including oriental inks and Korean traditional papers. Park has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions.

Library programs are free and everyone is welcome. For more information please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
