UNION — Halloween and “spooky houses” just go together and that’s why the Union County Arts Council is offering some children the chance to build their own “Spooky House” this Saturday.

Arts Council Coordinator Amber Ivey said that the UCAC is holding its “Mini Monet” program at the UCAC Art Gallery at 135 W. Main St., Union this Saturday from 9-11 a.m.

Ivey said this Saturday’s program will have a Halloween theme as it will provide the children participating in it with “a unique and fun class.” She said that the children taking part in the class will have the opportunity to make, decorate and take home their very own “Spooky House.”

The class is open to children in kindergarten through the 6th grade, but Ivey cautioned that space is limited and that pre-registration is required for participation. She said that the cost is $15 per child for Arts Council members and $20 per child for non-members.

The Juried Art Show provides local and area artists with a chance to display their work and compete for awards sponsored by area businesses, families, and individuals. At this year’s Art Show there were 65 paintings submitted by more than 30 artists competing for those awards.

Those paintings were placed on display in the lobby and adjacent hallways of the Main Building in September for the Juried Art Show and will remain on display there through Oct. 30.
