Beautiful Mess

Image advertising Beautiful Mess at Oakland Public Library

What are we making? Whatever you want -- and it's going to be beautiful. And messy.

This once-a-month afterschool art program allows kids to focus more on the process than the product, whether we're using clay, watercolors, pencils, or odds and ends.

We might not know where this art project is going, but we'll have lots of fun getting there.

For children of all ages; children 5 and under should be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

On APRIL 13, we will be making collage/paper art that kids can enter into the Unbound Book Art & Craft Contest. For more information on the contest, see
