Ganja and Hess

The library podcast, Judge a Book by its Cover, is still technically judging films by their posters.

This month we watched Ganja and Hess, a 1973 experimental Horror Film directed by Bill Gunn (available via Kanopy- our libraries streaming service). Bizarre is the name of the game as we talk ancient cursed daggers, vampires that aren't vampires, and purposefully disjointed storytelling.

Listen to it here, or on your favorite podcast app.

Teen Crafternoon - Tissue Paper Painting

Join us for a creative afternoon with tissue paper! Pick up a craft kit from the library or gather your own supplies and craft along!

KIT CONTENTS:
Watercolor paper (various sizes)
White crayon
“Bleeding color” Tissue paper
NOT INCLUDED:
Spray water bottle or paint brush

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. (Optional) Draw a design on the watercolor paper with the white crayon. This will be hard to see but will show up after the art is dry.
2. Spray the watercolor paper lightly with water. You can also use a paintbrush.
3. Rip or cut the tissue paper and apply it over the design on the paper. Try to keep the tissue paper and your hands dry during this step or the tissue paper will begin to bleed on your hands.
4. Spray the design or paint water lightly again to encourage the color to bleed.
5. Let your art dry and brush off the tissue paper. Enjoy!
