Mini Chocolate Box Sculpture
Live, Virtual – Tuesday, February 16 at 2:30 and 4 PM
Teens and tweens in grades 5 and up are invited to sign up to make a cute miniature chocolate box filled with clay bonbons.

After the class, the library will send you a video from Pop Up Art School that shows you how to paint your miniature chocolate box after it dries.
Please register for ONE of the two program time slots. Registrants need to come to the library to pick up the supply kit before the program (you can do that using our curbside service).
