Our long-awaited Manville Arts Council Coloring Book is finally here! The artwork within the book is one-of-a-kind original designs. Each unique to the artist. Each one to color and make your own. Thanks to all the artists who entered our contest. You truly are talented. The cover was drawn by Shannon Kerrigan! We loved the whimsical drawing that depicts a creative spirit. Also included is art from the following artists: Dr. Maria Auletta, Jaci Barney, Mason McDermott, Barbara Schneider and Weird Vanity.
Books are available for a donation of $10. Pick up your copy at the Manville Public Library or order HERE.
We hope you love the book as much as we do!

The Manville Arts Council is currently sponsoring an ongoing writer’s workshop for writers of all genres and skill levels. The group meets monthly on the fourth Thursday at the Manville Public Library. Participants are encouraged—but not obligated—to bring up to two pages of current work to share with the group (five copies).
“April is the cruelest month,” wrote the great poet T.S. Eliot. Yet April is also National Poetry Month, an opportunity to enjoy the diverse forms and styles of this under-appreciated art form. To commemorate, the Manville Arts Council will host a one-time Poetry Workshop on April 6. Participants will examine several forms of poetry and the work of diverse poets. The group will experiment with writing poems in different forms. Facilitated by Beth Borrus, MFA Poetics.
Join Beth on Thursday April 6th at the Manville Library, 100 S 10th Avenue. All are welcome!
Our March meeting has been moved to Thursday, March 16th. We hope you can all make it!
