Macoupin County Kids get Creative during the 4-H Paint and Create Snowman Canvas

The University of Illinois Extension of Macoupin County offered two Paint and Create Snowman Canvas Workshops in January.  The first session was held on Tuesday, January 3 at the Extension office in Carlinville.  The second session took place at Northwestern Grade School in Palmyra on Tuesday, January 10.  The participants were guided on design and painting techniques throughout the session. They were encouraged to get creative by adding embellishments or changing up the color scheme to make their design unique. Youth were able to take their snowman canvas home at the end of the session.
