Eclipse painting participants Gwendollee Ellison, front, visiting friend Joy Ford background, from Cherryville, Kan., work on creating an eclipse scene for an adult craft event at the Cassville Branch Library.

Cassville Librarian Assistant Donna Lawson uses a YouTube video for guidance to show participants, step-by-step, how to paint a solar eclipse. Just like each eclipse that occurs, each painting was a unique creation, Lawson said. Julia Kilmer reporter@cassville-democrat.com
Since a full solar eclipse is not something that happens every day, the Cassville Branch Library got involved in the excitement by holding a class to paint one as part of their monthly adult craft event. Library Assistant Donna Lawson made the event special for participants, with sparkling juice and refreshments. Julia Kilmer reporter@cassville-democrat.com
