Teens who would like to customize a skateboard with their own design can get stoked about upcoming skateboard art workshops presented by East Central Regional Library.
Mark Rivard will lead the workshops where participants will hear his inspirational story of becoming a professional artist, learn his artistic techniques and create an original work of art on an actual skateboard deck using Sharpie markers. At the end of workshop, participants can take their customized board deck and Sharpies home. (Wheels and hardware not included.)
