Making holiday memories with art and cookies

While nothing says comfort quite like a steaming cup of hot chocolate, nothing says a great gift quite like a homemade painting. On Dec. 9, more than a dozen children and adults attended a Cookies and Canvas event hosted by and held at the Prairie Township Community Center. Each budding artist received their own canvas, easel, bag of cookies and professional instructions by Jodi Osborne on how to paint a steaming cup of cocoa set against a wintery backdrop. While not all artists had positive things to say about their masterpiece, a good time was had by all. Here, Victoria Gunn and her daughter, Olivia, 6, show off their creations. The westside residents said they attended the Cookies and Canvas event to give them something to do in the community that was holiday themed. They were not sure as to whether their creations would be gifted to another or framed for prosperity. “I think we did a great job,” said Victoria.
After the painting fest was over, Layla Allen (left) and Evy Wickham got to meet the Grinch. He was not feeling grinchy enough to steal their work.
