We welcome back award- winning pastel artist Greg Maichack for a free hands-on pastel workshop, “Regatta”, Saturday, Feb. 7th, 10-12 in the community room.  “Regatta” focuses on the Golden Age of Impressionism and Monet’s “The Regatta at Argenteuil”. 

Beginners to advanced artists are invited to learn about the finer aspects of pastel art and create an original work under Greg’s direction. 

We thank the West Stockbridge Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Call the library at 223-0300 EXT 308 to sign up.


Stop in the library this month to help us celebrate Chinese New Year (Feb. 19). It’s the Year of the Sheep.  Grab a fortune cookie and admire our friendly dragon. During school winter vacation week, we’ll host a Chinese New Year story and craft time, Thurs., Feb. 19th, 3-3:30.  

 Computer classes, including Windows 8 and introductory classes, continue through the winter. Call or stop at the library to sign up.
