Bleach Art Program

Ever try Bleach Art?
Drawing designs on fabric with bleach pens is like tie-dying in reverse.

Join us at the Essex Library on Tuesday, March 31st @ 3:30 pm.

Drop in after school to check it out, and bring your old favorites that need a little sprucing up. We'll be using bleach - so be ready to experiment!

It's a fantastic way to recycle old duds and learn a great new art form.
Chat with friends, listen to some music and enjoy a snack. Call the library or use our facebook page to sign up today.
