Learn how to create traditional Indian designs and use henna for body decoration during a special event Tuesday, July 16, from 3:30-5:30 p.m., at East Central Regional Library-Rush City.

Henna is a plant known for its reddish color, used to decorate the body for special occasions such as Indian weddings and celebrations. In impermanent art, creating the art is more important than the art itself.

Henna Designs, with teaching artist Shakun Maheshwari, is recommended for teens (12 and up) and adults. Registration is required on the events calendar at ecrlib.org. Space is limited. Note: Participants must have permission from a parent or legal guardian to create a design on themselves. Permission forms will be available at the library before and at the program.

This program is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

The library is located at 240 W. Fourth St. in downtown Rush City and can be reached at 320-358-3948. Keep informed of all East Central Regional Library events by visiting the events calendar at ecrlib.org and following them on Facebook.
