March Paintings and Dates

The Montezuma Monets will meet twice in March in order to relax, give our minds a good workout and have fun!

The first painting session will be on Monday, March 10th from 9:00-11:00 where we’ll be painting these teacups/coffee mugs. A bit intimidating?? Don’t worry, you’ll get to use a pattern for this one!


Monday, March 24th the Monets will meet between 6:30-8:30 pm to paint this field of flowers. Not a fan of green or purple? No worries, you are more than welcome to choose your own colors!

If you are interested in participating in either of these classes please contact Angie at the library to reserve your spot.

Open Paint Success!!

This month the Library hosted two Paint In dates where artists could come to the Library for two hours and paint whatever they wanted. Some ladies came in with photographs to paint from (the wire on a post and that BIG red cow). Others chose to paint some of our past paintings or choose from a pile of my paintings to work from.

As always we had a great turn out with about 20 painters over two days.

Montezuma Monets; Better Late Than Never!



Sue took a photo of her own barn and bins and worked from that for her painting.

DSC_1510Our library director Angie does every painting party and has been the driving force in these painting parties and keeping them going. Thanks so much for all you do Angie!


In the evening we painted a nest with eggs sitting on a barn window sill.

This painting was a bit more involved and took about 2 1/2 hours.


We had a total of 11 ladies in this class with 3 newcomers!!


Our painting classes are definitely popular and the word is spreading! If you have a painting idea for the Montezuma Monets or would like more information about the painting parties you can contact Angie at the Library or email our painting instructor Heather Eslinger at eslingerheather@yahoo.com

2013 Holiday Table Tour

The Library would like to thank everyone who set up a table this weekend and everyone who attended our Second Annual Holiday Table Tour. We had twenty one tables set up that were as different as night and day! We had elegant tables and rustic tables, formal tables and even a children’s table. The funds raised on Saturday from admission will go towards the Library’s ongoing landscaping project.

In case you were unable to view the tables on Saturday, here is a sampling of what you missed.

Santa Painting Party Success!


This past Tuesday the library hosted not one, but two painting parties; one in the morning and one in the evening. The Library’s painting parties are becoming so popular that the evening session out grew the library and had to be moved to the Senior Center next door! Fun and laughs were enjoyed by all and some yummies! Thanks for the cookies Chuck!


Twenty three Santas were painted on Tuesday some of which wore Kansas purple hats! Ho ho ho!!

All the same but oh so very different!
