The Reddick Mansion is hosting a children's painting party on Sunday afternoon, March 24th, from 2-4pm. Lori McCarter, local artist and experienced party host, will instruct attendees as they complete their "Bunny Trails" painting.

The painting feautres an Easter/spring theme of bright-colored polka dots and floppy-eared bunny.

Accoridng to McCarter, "This piece will be done with step by step instructions and as much help as needed to help each young artist go home with their own original piece of art to proudly display. We will focus on fun and friendship and enjoying a spring afternoon together."

Everything will be provided to complete the paintings that afternoon. The paintings will be done on a 11"x14" wrapped canvas that will be ready to hang - no framing necessary!

Snacks and beverages will be provided and the artists may bring a treat to share, if they like. McCarter also recommends that old clothes or a paint shirt be worn.

The class is geared for boys and girls 5+ years old and children under 11 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Limited spaces are available and early registration is suggested. Cost is $35.00 per painter and pre-payment is required. Please call the Reddick Mansion at 815-433-6100 or register online at www.reddickmansion.org.
