Darling Emily!

Hope you can join us this Sunday
June 11, 4:30pm at the
*The Park County Senior Center*
206 South Main
The always optional theme:
Veggie Bacon!
Recipe Demo:
Coconut Bacon Bits

Proving Isa Chandra's
Vegan Rule #14:
β€œVegans can and will
make bacon out of everything!"

Bacon is all about salt, fat, smoky flavor, and chewy crispy texture!
No misery or violent death required.

We’ve never met a person who wants to hurt animals.
People are kind.

Pigs raised for bacon suffer lives that are hell on earth; then are slaughtered at 6 months young.
Those who think β€œhumane” or β€œlocal” mean anything are forgetting the ultimate betrayal, the terror of transport, and the horror of slaughter.

We’ve never met a vegan who gave up meat because it tastes bad.
Everyone loves the taste of salt & fat!

BACO’s are Accidentally Vegan
and with a little soy sauce and liquid smoke, homemade bacon can be made from all sorts of veggies...

Pour Painting Taught by Grey Wilson

Date: Saturday, JUNE 10

Time: 11am to 1:30pm
Cost: $40 per student ($35 for LCAC members)

In this class, Wilson will demonstrate the basics of creating paintings that use gravity as your paint brush. Use of specific materials will be explained, how to use them and effects that can be achieved when combining them.

Students will be able to do more than one painting in the class. They may have to pick up their art the following Tuesday, as it only takes overnight to dry. Completed paintings also move slightly, so it is better to let them set. Drawing skills are not necessary. If you can put ketchup on a hamburger, you can do this. It's lots of fun and you will be surprised how creative you will become.

All materials included.

Location: 119 south Main Street, Downtown Ltown

To register: (406) 222-5222 or OR

Sand Casting with Laura Rose on Saturday, June 17th:

Age: Adult
Time: 11am to 4pm at the Livingston Center for Art and Culture
Class Fee: LCAC Members $190 ($200 for Non Members)
Materials included

Always wanted to feel the exhilaration of casting molten metal? Come experiment with direct pour sand casting, one of the oldest, simplest and most satisfying methods of casting. Bring small objects (up to 1.5 inches) to press directly into the sand or use provided objects. The pressed pieces will not be damaged, but should not be too delicate and must not have any undercuts. Casting will be done in silver unless students wish to bring their own metal. Students will learn to prepare the mold, to cast and different methods of finishing pieces.

Lab coat optional! Registration available online.
