Every Monday, Becky An­der­son gives free art lessons to numerous local child­ren at the Eliza­beth­town branch of the Hardin County Library.

This week’s art lesson had several children using watercolors to paint leaves. The children learn­ed about artist Georgia O’Keeffe, known for her paint­ings of enlarged flowers and why leaves changed color in the fall.

Anderson holds two camps. The afternoon camp, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., is gear­ed for children up to fifth-­graders. Anderson’s morn­ing art camp, from 10 to 11 a.m., is aimed at home­schooled children up to eighth-­grade.

“I just think it’s important that I can reach as many kids with art lessons as possible,” Anderson said.

To register for the classes, go to the children’s area in the Elizabethtown branch of the Hardin County Public Library.
