      'Mingling with Monet' Historic StARTS Art Class Set for Tuesday, July 10

      Historic StARTS art classes for children, sponsored by The Arts Council of Williamson County for children, ages three to six, will delve into impressionism with "Mingling with Monet" on Tuesday, July 10, from 4 to 5 p.m. at Carnton Plantation in Franklin.

      Casey Kirk, lead instructor, explains, "The Impressionists were alive and well during the Victorian Era. Bring your child and work together to capture an impression of the beautiful garden at Carnton Plantation. We will work on dabbling brush strokes and mixing colors while painting en plein air!"
