Mini Monet Student Art Reception
What does a pirate painting, a drawing of a sheep named Linda, and a ceramic organ made into a teapot have in common? They are all showcased in the 2nd annual Mini Monet Student Art Show and Competition 2-4 p.m. this Saturday, April 6, at Carthage High School Performing Arts Center, 1600 W. Panola St., Carthage.
