SYRACUSE — Because of inclement weather, Syracuse Public Library rescheduled its Family Paint Night Feb. 13. The program will be from 5-7 p.m. in the downstairs meeting room. Because of limited canvases, painters ages 8 years and older should register individually at http://tinyurl.com/SPLFamilyPaintNight.
SPL will provide alternative art supplies that younger children can use for independent art projects. Participants should plan to arrive at 5 p.m. so they don’t miss a step in the scene painting. Parents should remain with their children during the Family Paint Night. This painting will take the entire two hours.
