WALDOBORO — The Waldoboro Public Library, 958 Main St., offers two different series of art lessons for adults beginning in February.

The first is “Art Fun for Adults,” a curbside program. This begins Wednesday, Feb. 9, and runs for five consecutive Wednesdays through March 9, with a new art project each week.

Due to continued pandemic precautions, the art take-and-make projects—complete with instructions and supplies—are available for curbside pickup each Wednesday after 11 a.m. at the library.

The projects will be simple to understand and can be developed, creatively, in as basic or complex a manner as each participant chooses to make them. All levels of experience welcome. Class size is limited to 15. The deadline for enrollment is Friday, Feb. 4.

Waldoboro artist and teacher Joyce Steel provides the projects for this program. An art educator, Steel has taught in both public and private education, as well as a variety of adult education courses and private classes. She is committed to providing an innovative creative learning environment where participants are encouraged to experiment and discover their own creative voice.

The second offering is “Your Imaginative Muse and Watercolors” with Waldoboro artist Debe Loughlin. Loughlin shares her methods and tips about watercolor painting techniques. In this basic class, students learn about the materials, a variety of painting surfaces and the magic of applying watercolors onto the paper. Students learn practical application of the skill and the ins and outs and tips of watercolor painting and come away with confidence and an original watercolor landscape. Students with any questions are welcome to email the instructor at debe.loughlin@gmail.com. Students are expected to provide their own supplies and the library has a list of the basic and inexpensive supplies needed. No experience is necessary.

This watercolor painting class meets via Zoom on three Saturdays, Feb. 26, March 5 and March 12, from 10 to 10:45 a.m. Those interested must register to receive the link to the classes. Class size is limited to 10 and enrollment ends Saturday, Feb. 19.

Both programs are free of charge. To enroll, or for more information, call the library at 832-4484, email info@waldoboro.lib.me.us, or ask at the front desk. The library is open Mondays and Thursdays from noon to 7 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
