The Starved Rock Country Welcome Center is hosting a "Holiday Pick Up Truck" sign painting class on Thursday, December 1st, from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Jyllian Ossola, local artist and experienced instructor, will direct attendees as they complete their 7" x 48" vertical porch sign.
"This single-sided sign will be done with step-by-step instruction and as much help as needed so that each artist will go home with their own original piece of art to proudly display or give away," said Ossola. Participants will be able to choose from two designs. "The completed project will be a large holiday greetings sign with a decorative fabric bow that will look great on a front porch or in an entryway," added Ossola.
Ossola, originally from Utica, has been has been "hosting" painting classes for several years. She also offers painting sessions through IVCC and teaches after-school art classes in Putnam County. Examples of some of her other projects can be found at her Facebook page, Flipping Vintage 17.
Everything will be provided to complete the porch signs that evening. Ossola also recommends that old clothes or a paint shirt be worn.
Refreshments, featuring a chicken taco dip and homemade holiday treats, will be provided.
