Paint library mural

Bored without school? Students in grades 6-12 are invited to create and paint a stained-glass mural on the teen-area windows of the Duluth Public Library on the Saturdays at the beginning and end of spring break.

Set designer and decorative painter Ann Gumpper will lead the project, the library tells us. It’s tied into the 2013 One Book One Community reading project on the novel “Clara and Mr. Tiffany” by Susan Vreeland, about little-known stained-glass artist Clara Driscoll.
This is how students can participate:

  • From 2-3:30 p.m. April 6, you’re invited to the library’s youth services areas to brainstorm ideas for mural images, discussing how you use the library, its books and materials.
  • The painting will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 13. Participants should wear appropriate clothes for painting. Paint, brushes and instruction will be provided. You can come for all or part of the time.

Anyone in the age group is welcome, and there’s no charge.
