Living Art Series is new addition to Arts Center classes


CARROLLTON – The Carroll County Arts Center is featuring a Living Art Series featuring a variety of plants.

The series is hosted by Barbara Burns, director of Nutrition Services for Carrollton Schools, and her sister-in-law, Jackie Pozderac, Carrollton High School art teacher.

After the success of the first class where participants created a succulent container garden and learned how to care for succulents, they decided to continue the series.

The second class is May 19 from 10-11:30 a.m. at The Ashton House Museum and is an introductory workshop on culinary herbs. During the “hands-on” event, participants will learn how to plant and care for these useful, incredible edibles that take meals from ordinary to extraordinary! (You may not miss the salt shaker!) Attendees will walk away with a lovely herb planter, new skills and a handy recipe packet. The class will also make homemade herb butter. 

The workshop includes all materials, including: planter, assorted culinary herbs, ornamental pepper seedling, garden gloves, refreshments and herb infused appetizers. Burns notes, “If you dare…take a chance with flavor and delight your eaters!”

Cost for the workshop is $30.

RSVP by registering by May 17 by calling the Arts Center at 330-627-3739.

The series will continue featuring a kids class, posie pick and sip, the 2nd annual Garden Art Stroll and an herbal faire.
