Local artist, instructor and owner of Shirley’s Arts, Shirley Freding is working on a mural for the Plant Building at the Agricultural Fair grounds.
Shirley has designed the mural with 36 incomplete bird and animal spots that are available for children to come and paint in.
On Saturday afternoons from 2 p.m., until 4 p.m., Shirley will be set up outside the Sunflower Gallery on Vermilion Avenue to work on the mural.
No appointment is necessary, if your child would like to paint an animal or bird come down to the gallery on a Saturday afternoon.
Once the mural is complete it will be set up in the plant building on view for years to come.
The mural will not be available for painting on Saturday, July 25. Shirley will be away that day but will return for the following session.
