Painting for Teens at Lancaster Library


The Lancaster Library is not solely a dwelling place for books but also an oasis filled with activities for youth and adults alike. The Lancaster Library is located at 601 W Lancaster Blvd.

One of the various activities available to teens at the library is the art program run each month, called Painting for Teens. Every Saturday throughout the month a different art skill is taught and demonstrated. The course is on Saturday, April 6, from 3 to 4 p.m. and is designed for teens aged 12-18. Students will learn how to create velvet art pieces, using oil, pastels, and acrylic paint that glows in the dark and will create pop art on an “8 X 10” canvas. 

Librarian Veronica Cabrera will be teaching this week's art class. Through the end of the month,  painting is up and coming. Cabrera says of the program, “We want to make sure that teens expand their understanding of things around the world, in school they learn academics–we try to fill that gap, which is why we have a lot of art and craft programs. It teaches them a lot of skills like logic, critical thinking, thinking outside of the box, social skills, and vocabulary. All of these programs are really important for teens. It gives them another outlet.”

Attendance is limited and advance registration is required. For more information visit: LA County Library.
