Mandel Public Library Of W. Palm Beach Opens New Comprehensive Studio Space For Creatives, Studio 411

The Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach is opening a new, comprehensive studio space for creatives on the second floor, named Studio 411, to support its popular and growing range of arts programs.  The new studio was formed to create one central location for artistic adults, children and teens to create, explore, and learn about a variety of arts and crafts from painting, drawing and sculpture to crocheting, soap-making and jewelry-making.  Studio 411 will officially open on Wednesday, September 5, 2018  with a ribbon cutting celebration followed by a studio orientation, just in time for the library’s fall programming. Patrons are encouraged to attend a studio class or stop by and see the new space. The Rickie Report shares the details and can’t wait to see what new creations are born through this exciting effort!

Wednesday, September 5th

 

4 PM

 

This event is free to attend, but please RSVP:  Joyce Pernicone  561.868.7782  or jpernicone@mycitylibrary.org

 

 

 

 

Studio 411 aims to enhance the library’s arts programs by providing a variety of services that encourage and develop creativity, and by cultivating the local artist community where amateurs and experts can interact and collaborate with each other.  Library staff devised the clever name, which was a nod to both the artist studio concept and the library’s address on Clematis Street (as well as the 4-1-1 information reference).

As with all library programs, all of the services, most tools and materials available at Studio 411 are completely free of charge for patrons during classes. Some of the services that will be available include:

  • Hands-on art classes for a variety of art forms and mediums

 

  • Art lectures about history, trends, collections and more

 

  • Craft lessons and classes

 

  • Mentoring amateur artists by local professionals

 

  • Live art observations and performances

 

  • Collaborative art projects

 

  • Art drop-in center – studio free time to work on independent projects

 

  • Training for creative entrepreneurs – marketing, business, professional growth, etc.

 

 

Arts programming at the Mandel Public Library is generously funded by the West Palm Beach Library Foundation, and the West Palm Beach Arts & Entertainment District.  The library made use of capital improvement funds to convert this old IT space into a collaborative community studio benefitting staff and patrons.  The library continually shifts and expands its programs and building areas to meet the growing community needs and interests.  Most recently, the library opened Square One, a dedicated space to help disconnected young adults with free services including mentoring, technology, career development and training, academic advancement, and more.

 

Please RSVP to Joyce Pernicone at 561-868-7782 or jpernicone@mycitylibrary.org if you are able attend this special ribbon cutting!

OUR IMPACT

We fill minds, not landfills. We turn almost 200,000 pounds of reusable stuff a year into classroom and alternative art materials, equipping educational programs, public workshops, and the weekend tinkerer with all sorts of unusual and inspiring resources to build, make and create with in Palm Beach County.

We have one focus in mind: inspiring individuals to make a difference in our world through environmental awareness and to participate in the ripple effect of taking small, but immediate action towards making your community a better place.

Tinker Lab Area

OUR HISTORY

1999
Resource Depot was founded. Members from the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County,Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach County School District and Florida Power & Light, came together to divert clean, safe, reusable materials that would otherwise be destined for the landfill into the hands of people who can use them for educational and artistic purposes.

2013
After several changes of location in the intervening years, we finally found the ideal home: 2510 Florida Avenue, off Belvedere in West Palm Beach. We made our big move in the fall allowing our role in the community to expand. We are still “the teacher place” but we are also SO MUCH MORE. We couldn’t be more proud of our space, and we invite you to visit any time during our shopping hours to check it out! Please note warehouse access policies.

2016
A look at what’s coming:
Making Resource Depot a Destination Location. With additions of:
Artist GalleRe
Creation Station
Drop Stop
Tinker Lab
And more educational programs on and off site for all of Palm Beach County.

 

 

 

Project Ideas!   Materials!  Recycle!  Reuse!

 

 

Teaching Artists Wanted!
