The YMCA is offering an art class for Brown County kids. Youth in fifth through eighth grades will have the opportunity to build a "Place of Their Own."

Instructor Brad Jensen, a local artisan with a degree in art education, will help youth create, layer and texture clay in a landscape of a place they would enjoy spending time. Youth will then use acrylic paint to finish their creation.

The class will be held on three consecutive Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 8:00 February 5, 12 and 19 in the art room at Brown County Middle School. Cost is $15 for members and $25 for nonmembers. Registrations are due January 20. The class is limited to only 12 participants. Visit the Mt. Sterling YMCA online for details on how to register.
