No experience or art skills are necessary, but advance registration is required, said Andrea Lorenz, the library's program coordinator

Barbara Benda Nagle, a professional artist and instructor who lives in Moorhead, will lead the sessions, each of which is limited to 18 students.

A one-hour session, titled "Experimenting with Acrylic Mixed Media Collage," begins at noon Saturday. Another session, which runs from 2 to 3:45 p.m. Sunday, is titled "Seeing Things Differently: The Short Course in Sketching."

Nagle also is offering lessons for children in kindergarten through grade 5 during this event, but those sessions are full, Lorenz said.

The Children's Art Weekend is funded by a grant from the Northwest Minnesota Council on the Arts, she said.

For more information or to register, visit the library at 422 Fourth St. N.W. or call (218) 773-9121.
