Program Description

YART! Yeeted Art @ Cardinal Ridge Bookmobile Stop

Teens who want to make awesome art and have some fun "yeeting" it should register for this program and join us at the Cardinal Ridge Bookmobile stop (on 23rd Street near the playground). We'll be creating a canvas work of art using the pour paint technique and the spinning movement created by "yeeting" it across the lawn.

Beginning July 1, registration can be completed online below, by calling 309.590.6168, or in person at the Adult Services Desk.

Two sessions of YART! are being offered.

  • July 13 at 3:30pm at the Evergreen Park Bookmobile Stop (Register for this session at
  • July 28 at 5:30pm at the Cardinal Ridge Bookmobile stop.

Wear clothes that you won't mind possibly destroying with paint. This is a messy activity.

Please register for only one session of the program! Registration is limited to 25 teens per session.
