We are offering Adult Paint and Sip “Kits” due to group gathering restrictions. Painting kits are provided for FREE and contain instructions, canvas, photo of picture to be painted, and carbon paper for tracing picture onto canvas. No previous painting experience needed. A different painting project will be offered each month.

You can pick up kits and have a small group gathering. Many of our patrons are painting with family and friends. Just stop by the library and ask a librarian for the number of kits you need. If you have specific questions about the kits, please contact Terri or Laura at 970-834-1259. Each kit will be available at the library during the dates listed below. If you are not able to pick up your kit during the week specified, please contact Terri or Laura and they will make arrangements to have kits available for you.

Hopefully, in the future, we will be able to once again gather in large groups and provide our once a month Paint and Sip Class. The class is held on a Friday night from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Participants must be 21 or older and bring their own drinks. We do allow a parent or grandparent to bring someone 18-20 years old. However, the parent or grandparent is restricted from consuming alcohol.

March  8 – 13

APRIL  12 – 17

MAY  10 – 15






Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

This is a continuous course where participants learn the basic skills for painting with acrylics. Each class builds upon the previous class starting with basic tools and techniques. The course is for beginners and no experience is necessary. This course is free and all supplies are provided.

The class size is limited to seven participants. Registration is required. Please contact the library and ask to speak to Terri or Laura (970-834-1259). If we receive enough interest, we will start a second class with a size limit of seven participants.

Examples of participants paintings after 16 weeks.
