MONROE - Great Plains Zen Center Ripples Program will host a Summer Art Class Series from July 10 through 25 at the Great Plains Zen Center, W7762 Falk Road.

In the six-session class series, children will have the opportunity to collaborate with artist-in-residence Annie Markovich to make a painting/collage of the reclining Buddha surrounded by animals of all kinds. The finished product will be on permanent display at Great Plains Zen Center. Children will draw and paint their favorite animals with brushes and watercolor and mixed media under the guidance of Markovich, an artist who has painted in Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C.

Classes will take place 2 to 3 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through July 25. Children of all ages are welcome and participants can attend the whole series or individual classes. Suggested donations are $5 per class or $25 for all.
