The energy filled days will explore creative methods of watermedia application, including texturing and the building of layers of paint.

The Le Mars Arts Center was the original Le Mars Public Library and was built in 1903 with funds from industrialist-financier Andrew Carnegie. The building was dedicated in 1904 housing 3,885 books. The library remained in the Carnegie building until August 1976. Le Mars Public Library is now located in a remodeled Red Owl supermarket purchased by the city in July 1973.
The Arts Center building was placed on the National Historic Register in 1979.
