Evening Silhouette Painting
Students aged 5 years and elder will have the opportunity to apply acrylic black paint into a canvas, spreading blues and purples on the background, while adding a moon and stars and later using black or white paint to create a silhouette. Event organizers suggest dressing children in old clothing as acrylic paint will create stains. All supplies are included in the $15 fee. It will be instructed by Terri Perkins, owners of Terri Lynn Art Studio and Gallery, 415 W. Main Street, and will take place 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 23 at the art studio. Interested individuals must register by Wednesday, March 22.
