|The Book to Art Club: Do you visualize while you read, and sometimes act on those visualizations by creating art? Then join The Book to Art Club! Every two months we’ll read a book, make some art, then come together to discuss both. Our title for July will be The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. Your projects can come from ideas taken right out of the book. Create your own flower dictionary, a flower arrangement, cross-stitch, embroidery, or water color painting. Whether you're trying a technique for the first time or honing your craft, get inspired by this book to get making! Sign-up is required - call 360-834-4692. For adults only.
