The Central Library is bringing back Art in the Park at the Market Street Park over the summer. On June 29 we’ll be making 3D Flower Canvas Art. You can sign up here. This craft is recommended for adults.
Faux flowers and leaves
Paint and paintbrush
Step 1: Draw an outline of a vase with your pencil.
Step 2: Arrange flowers on top of your vase, starting with the largest flowers. Then, fill in holes with smaller blooms. Trim flowers as needed.
Step 3: Once you have arranged your large flowers, cut small slits in the canvas with the X-acto knife and slide the stems of the flowers through the back of the canvas. You may be able to fit a couple of flowers through one slit.
Step 4: Tape stems to the back of the canvas and glue flowers in place, if needed. Then add smaller flowers, and tape the back of the canvas again, if needed.
Step 5: Add leaves to fill in gaps. Secure leaves with glue.
Step 6: Finally, paint your vase and hang your masterpiece!
