Library Art Class Brings Spiderman to Zoom for Canyon Lake Teens

Tye Preston Memorial Library will provide all materials for Thursday's online class. All your teenager needs to learn to draw Spiderman is an internet connection and a webcam.

Zoom is a funny thing.

People who would never dream of showing up for an art class — many claiming they can’t even draw stick figures — are signing up online and discovering the joy of drawing.

“When you’re working out of your home, doing it on Zoom, it’s a safer place,” said Canyon Lake resident Dyan Lee, a member of the Canyon Lake Art Guild and the New Braunfels Art League who studied art at Parsons School of Design in New York and attended college at Universidad de las Americas.

She’s taught several classes online and now Tye Preston Memorial Library (TPML) is betting the online popularity of her adult art classes will transfer to teenagers.

Lee will teach kids ages 13 to 17 how to draw Spiderman from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, June 24.

TPML will provide supplies, which can be picked up outside the library before the class. Students are asked to “bring” paper towels or wipes for fingers, a utility knife or equivalent to sharpen lead pencils, a small amount of tape and an intenet connection with webcam.

Lee said online art is more social than it might seem.

“It’s kind of fun because while they’re doing the drawing, everyone’s holding up their pictures to the camera so the rest of us can see it and people are talking to each other and getting to know each other,” she said. “It’s a fun thing.”
