Skateboard art workshop

Teens who would like to customize a skateboard with their own design will not want to miss an upcoming skateboard art experience at East Central Regional Library-Rush City.

Join artist Mark Rivard for his skateboard art workshop from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 25. 

Participants (recommended ages 13-18) will hear his inspirational story of becoming a professional artist, learn his artistic techniques and create an original work of art on an actual skateboard deck using Sharpie markers. 

At the end of workshop, take your customized board deck and Sharpies home. (Wheels and hardware are not included.)
