Annie Reiser, certified Zentangle instructor, guided participants through the creation of a bookmark using several different tangles (primarily the Springkle tangle) in a live virtual class she presented for the Huntley Area Public Library in June 2020. This gallery showcases some of the pieces created by attendees. If you missed the class, you can view a recording here. Please share your creation with us using the form below to upload a photo/image.
Tweens designed and decorated a book/tote bag and made buttons to show their love for the library. We provided all the supplies for kids ages 10-14 in this 90 minute class. Check out the photos!

Amanda Palczynski, graphic designer and art journalist, shared tips and ideas (plus lots of fun art supplies and stickers) to inspire participants in the creation of their own bullet journals. Popular spreads included monthly calendars, mood trackers, and chores/to-do lists. Everyone went home with a journal and – hopefully – a desire to continue journaling.
Tweens designed a fashionably spooky outfit for a miniature skeleton to wear on the runway. Check out the spook-tacular photos!
