The Roundup -

Sunrise Festival to Feature Unique Art Classes


This year’s Sunrise Festival of the Arts will feature three unique art classes available to the public.

From 11:30 to 12:30, learn to make colorful fused glass wind chimes with Jessica Newman, Education Coordinator at the MonDak Heritage Center. During the class, participants will choose, place and glue sections of colored glass to form the chime tubes. The tubes will be fired in a kiln and available for pickup in a week. All ages are welcome, and the cost is $35 per person.

From 2:30 to 3:30, build tiny garden gnomes out of wet clay. Participants of all ages and experience will learn techniques to work with wet clay, and will be able to glaze their gnomes during the class. Gnomes will be fired in a kiln to be picked up the next week. The cost for this class is $25.

These kiln-fired items can be picked up at the MonDak Heritage Center.

Craft a wooden stained board with stencil at one of two sessions, instructed by Angela Miller of The Rural Rose. Stencil either “Life is better on the farm/ranch”, or “HOME”, with a stencil either of Montana or North Dakota state as the “O”. Sessions are offered from 10:00 to 11:00, and from 1:00 to 2:00. The cost of the class is $40.

Participants can register for any of these classes at the Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce, located at 909 South Central Ave. Payment in the form of cash or check can be submitted at registration, or at the time of the class.

The Sunrise Festival of the Arts takes place on Saturday, July 8th, at Veteran’s Memorial Park, also known as the Train Park, from 8:00 to 4:00. The Festival features local artists, showcasing their talents and selling handcrafted items.
