Repurpose those old CDs into a working clock. How? With the use of paint, a scratching tool, a clock mechanism and your imagination, a useless CD can be transformed into an individualized piece of clock art. If you are between the ages of 13-18, join us on Thursday, Mar. 13, from 3:00-5:00 p.m., in RPL’s main auditorium. All teens will be given one blank CD to decorate. The first 15 participants will receive the clock mechanism. Acrylic paint in various colors will be provided. A technique called “scratch art” will be demonstrated.
All teens, ages 13-18, are invited to see a free movie on RPL’s big screen in the auditorium on Wednesday, May 7, at 5:30 p.m. A young woman begins a journey to find her sister whose power to create ice and snow has trapped their kingdom in an eternal winter. The movie is rated PG. No registration is needed. For more information, call 330-821-2665, ext. 214.
