20, 2014] The
Lincoln Park District has planned another series of Art Workshops
for Beginners, featuring Jody Phillips as the instructor.
Phillips is a local artist and will be offering classes for adults
and children. If you enjoy painting or would like to try painting a
picture for the first time, then treat yourself to an art class.
These workshops are designed for kids and adults to have fun while
creating. No experience is needed and all materials are provided.
Adult and high school age participants will have a class on
Saturday, March 22, beginning at 1 p.m. The instruction will be with
landscape painting, perhaps with a country theme. Youth classes will
meet on Sunday afternoon, with kindergarten through second grade
from 1 to 2 p.m. and young people in third through eighth grade from
2:30 to 4 p.m. Phillips encourages everyone to wear old clothes just
in case paint gets on them. The cost for these make-and-take
projects is $35 for adults and high school ages for park district
residents and $42 for nonresidents. The cost for grade school ages
will be $20 for residents and $24 for nonresidents.
The Community Health Fair will be on Saturday, March 29, from
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This free event will be at the park district
complex on Primm Road. The Logan County Department of Public Health
is co-sponsor and will be there to welcome you. There will be over
60 booths to visit, all offering health and safety information. Many
screenings will be offered, and a few of those will have very small
charges attached to them. There will also be a blood drive on the
Central Illinois Community Blood Center bloodmobile. In addition,
there will be many opportunities to recycle a number of things. New
this year will be a 65-foot inflatable obstacle course, story time,
cooking demonstrations, children's crafts and more. As the date gets
closer, more specific information will be released.
for baseball (boys) and softball (girls) will run
through April 7 at the park district's administrative offices. Costs
will be the same as last year, with a discount per additional
sibling. The park district is looking for a lot of parents to be
involved in the program this year. If you have an interest, please
indicate that when you register your children.
The park district will offer something new very soon. The
district has partnered with On A Good Note music therapy
services for children's classes in two age groups. Katelyn Kratz is the president of
On A Good Note and a board-certified music therapist. Children will
have the opportunity to explore, learn, create and appreciate music
in a way that is fun and exciting. Kratz works with a very broad
spectrum of children. Her talents can focus on special needs,
children in hospitals or children who are just curious about the
world of music.
