The Arrowhead Library System presents 321 Art Studio's "Arthur Zar's Amazing Zebras" — Monday, Sept. 10, at 6 p.m., Silver Bay Public Library, and Wednesday, Sept. 26, 6 p.m. The free program is offered for ages preschool to adult.

A local art teacher has added the title of author to her resume. Join us as author Amy Lucas-Peroceski discusses her book writing and illustration process. Amy will show original idea notes and sketches. Listen to the first part of her new book, "Arthur Zar's Amazing Zebras." Hunt for hidden letters in zebra stripes.

The second part of the program will feature how to draw a zebra on 8-by-1/2-by-11-inch cardstock. "Painting the Zebra with Water Miscible Oil Pastels" will be demonstrated by the artists.

Preschoolers will paint with water-soluble oil pastels. Adults will further enhance their zebra by adding background to the picture.
