CK Reads Paint Parties

This year Chatham-Kent Public Library (CKPL) will be concluding its 2020 CK Reads program with a series of “Paint Parties” hosted at all 11 CKPL branches during the last two weeks of April.

CK Reads is a community-wide book club where everyone in Chatham-Kent is invited to read the same book. Through discussions and programs, CK Reads hopes to bring the community closer together through a shared love of reading. The 2020 CK Reads selection was “Still Life” by Louise Penny.

Art and community are major themes in “Still Life”, so to celebrate the end of our 2020 CK Reads program we are inviting community members to visit a CKPL branch and create a painting that represents Chatham-Kent or depicts a favourite Chatham-Kent event or activity. You don’t have to be an artist to participate! All ages and skill levels are welcome and all supplies will be provided. Light refreshments will also be made available.
