Beginner Watercolor Painting with Ninon Riccio

In this class, you will be introduced to the amazing and challenging art medium, watercolor. You don’t need to have any painting experience to take this class. You will learn the principles of watercolor, how to mix and apply color, use various items such as sponges, salt and toothbrush to achieve certain effects. This is a relaxing and enjoyable time to get in touch with your inner artist. Below is a list of supplies you should bring:

Beginner Supplies:

  • Large coffee can or container to hold water

  • Bring whatever you choose to work with (please avoid bringing paint set with very small wells of color) Watercolor paints can get expensive, but you are better off purchasing a few important colors, by Windsor Newton (in small tubes) than a bunch of poor quality paints that won’t provide good results. (Colors should include: red, green, yellow, brown, blue) Any and all shades of these will work.

  • A large thick towel that you can use (and you won’t be able to use for anything but painting again)

  • A set of ‘watercolor’ brushes. (If you only bring or purchase 2 or 3, these sizes are desirable: 14, 12, 10, 8, 6

  • A white plastic paint palette or at least 4-6 large plastic dinner plates (not paper or Styrofoam)

  • Sea sponge (you don’t need a huge one, even a few approx. 2 inch pieces torn off a big one is fine)

A $20 fee is payable by check only at time of registration.

Beginner Watercolor Painting with Ninon Riccio

In this class, you will be introduced to the amazing and challenging art medium, watercolor. You don’t need to have any painting experience to take this class. You will learn the principles of watercolor, how to mix and apply color, use various items such as sponges, salt and toothbrush to achieve certain effects. This is a relaxing and enjoyable time to get in touch with your inner artist. Below is a list of supplies you should bring:

Beginner Supplies:

  • Large coffee can or container to hold water

  • Bring whatever you choose to work with (please avoid bringing paint set with very small wells of color) Watercolor paints can get expensive, but you are better off purchasing a few important colors, by Windsor Newton (in small tubes) than a bunch of poor quality paints that won’t provide good results. (Colors should include: red, green, yellow, brown, blue) Any and all shades of these will work.

  • A large thick towel that you can use (and you won’t be able to use for anything but painting again)

  • A set of ‘watercolor’ brushes. (If you only bring or purchase 2 or 3, these sizes are desirable: 14, 12, 10, 8, 6

  • A white plastic paint palette or at least 4-6 large plastic dinner plates (not paper or Styrofoam)

  • Sea sponge (you don’t need a huge one, even a few approx. 2 inch pieces torn off a big one is fine)

A $20 fee is payable by check only at time of registration.

In person registration only:

Wantagh Public Library cardholders: Tuesday, August 27 at 10:00am.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Wantagh Public Library is a non-profit, charitable organization made up of volunteers who offer their time and energy to benefit the library. Thanks to the generous support of the Friends, since 2003 the group has given over $62,000 to the library. The money was raised though dues, book sale profits and donations.  The library for example, received a much needed gift from the Friends, the entertainment equipment in the community room, that patrons still enjoy movies and conduct presentations. Do you enjoy movies?  The Friends also presented cooking programs, and speakers who taught us about antiques (including free evaluations of some of our treasures). Friends provided the occasional entertainment, such as a Beatles’ tribute band, complete with appropriately costumed musicians. The Library now needs new Friends to step forward to support the library’s mission. The Friends of the Library group is looking for new members with fresh ideas to join this historic and much needed organization. Help your library and have fun doing it! Join us for a meeting on Wednesday, October 9 at 6pm to learn more.

Cover to Cover Book Discussion: Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister

Join us for our book discussion of Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister.

Inspired by the real story of investigator Kate Warne, this spirited novel follows the detective's rise during one of the nation's times of crisis, bringing to life a fiercely independent woman whose forgotten triumphs helped sway the fate of the country.

With no money and no husband, Kate Warne finds herself with few choices. The streets of 1856 Chicago offer a desperate widow mostly trouble and ruin—unless that widow has a knack for manipulation and an unusually quick mind. In a bold move that no other woman has tried, Kate convinces the legendary Allan Pinkerton to hire her as a detective.

Battling criminals and coworkers alike, Kate immerses herself in the dangerous life of an operative, winning the right to tackle some of the agency's toughest investigations. But is the woman she's becoming—capable of any and all lies, swapping identities like dresses—the true Kate? Or has the real disguise been the good girl she always thought she was?
