KENILWORTH, NJ- Kenilworth residents can register today for a drawing class with artist Doug Baron at the Kenilworth Public Library on Saturday, April 8. The class will teach participants how to draw movie characters from this year’s popular films.

Doug Baron is a professional graphic artist who teaches workshops for both children and adults, according to Robin Koerner, coordinator of children’s services at the library. He has presented several programs at the Kenilworth Public Library within the last several years.  

“We chose this topic because many children and their families are excited about these two new movies, ‘Beauty and The Beast,’ and ‘Power Rangers,’” Koerner said. “I thought this would be a fun way to encourage children, teens and adults to explore their artistic talents as it relates to these films.”

The class is scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Children ages eight and up, teens, and adults are encouraged to register today by calling the library at (908) 276-2451 or by visiting the library in person.

“I am looking forward to offering children, teens and adults an opportunity to explore their artistic talents related to these familiar movie characters,” Koerner said.

Non-residents can register for the class on April 6. The program has been funded by the Les Malamut Art Gallery.
