Children need to break for art

Kids from last year’s Community Art Center 2017 Fall Break Drama Break pose with masks they made. They are, from left: front row, Anna Stratton, Eliah Snyder and McKenzy Neyhouse; and, back, row, Anders Petkus, Lucy Evces, Sarah Guice, Anna Wiglesworth and Oscar Treadway. CAC announces announces the establishment of the Dr. Larry Scott Fine Arts Access Fund. The Fund was established in 2018 at the time of Dr. Scott’s retirement from medical practice by a generous family that seeks to recognize Dr. Scott’s commitment to the children of our community. Their hope is that the fund will continue to grow, allowing more children to experience the transformative power of the arts. Projects supported by the Dr. Larry Scott Fine Arts Access Fund include the Community Arts Center’s youth programming in visual arts, music and drama. To donate, visit, call Kate Snyder at (859) 236-4054 or drop by CAC at 401 W. Main St., Danville. 

Making a difference

Mother and daughter Tina and Hailey Culp sort out books in their Mercer County home to be donated to a shelter in Louisville. Hailey Culp, a University of Louisville student from Burgin studying to be a physician assistant, volunteers at a shelter in Louisville for a class project — the Resilient Families Project. Hailey loves to read and found the residents at the shelter do, as well. The problem, though, was there were no books to read. Hailey decided to hold a book drive, setting a goal of 100 books. Tina told her coworkers at Farmers National Bank in Danville about the drive, and within two days, 167 books had been donated for the shelter. A week and a half later, 300 books were counted. Several came from Boyle County Schools, donated because they were no longer needed. 

Stave painting class

Wilderness Trail Distillery was a January gathering spot for Barrel Stave Painting. Independent Stave Company of Lebanon provided the barrel staves and Kate Goode helped participants put a saying of their choosing on the staves. The class had refreshments while they painted, and created their own masterpieces. The stave is the wooden slats bound together to make a barrel.
