Artists from around the region will display their works in an open air gallery. Budding artists are invited to paint. Organizers will provide the canvas and paints; you supply the artistic spirit.
Retired art teacher Melody Jones will offer sketching tips to children. Children will be given a card stock sheet to create a drawing pertaining to Beckman Mill’s 150th anniversary. The finished project will be displayed in the “drive thru” at the mill for the day or taken home.
Other free activities will include grinding demonstrations at the mill, strolling the oak savanna boardwalk, visiting the museum, enjoying ice cream treats and listening to concertina music by John Sheehan.
