A group of Henning area residents joined Lana Beck for a Grandma and Me art class last week. The class was held at the Landmark Center

Thank you to all the volunteer artists that helped us with our community mural painting in the Henning City Park on Friday and Saturday. A special thanks to the Lake Region Arts Council, who helped the Landmark Center obtain Legacy Grant Funds to make this project possible. 

Artist Lana Beck hosted a Grandma and Me painting workshop for a group of 12 on Thursday evening, then worked with a tremendous group of local volunteers to create art in the park. I hope this is something we can all be proud of, and perhaps carry on to another mural project in the future.
