The paint party, part of Newton’s Third Thursday activities, will allow anyone to pick up a brush, dab some paint and create a pennant that will be used to decorate “Art in the Park” scheduled for later in the month.

Pennants and art supplies will be provided. Music will be provided by Piano Man Barrick Wilson, and refreshments will be served.

The event is free. For more information, call the gallery at 316-284-2749.
