Rushford Peterson Valley kicks off demonstration and class season

The Rushford Peterson Farmers’ Market, now in its third year, is planning several demonstrations and classes from local growers and artisans. Markets are held Wednesdays, May through October, from 4-7 p.m., at Creekside Park in Rushford.

On June 10, local crafter and painter Jessica Ziebell, who markets under the name of Paradise Outpost, will host two children’s painting sessions at the market. The first class begins at 4 p.m. and the class will be painting a cow. The second class begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be painting a hippo.

An adult painting session has been set for Wednesday, June 17, from 5-7 p.m. Cost for all classes is $25 with pre-registration and $30 the day of. Classes will be held in the pavilion.

Ziebell began painting in high school. Her whimsical works have been sold at Simple. A Baby Store in Lewiston, and at the market. “I am a self-proclaimed crafter of all, but painting is by far my favorite!” she enthuses.

“Acrylic painting is a great basic paint. This paint is forgiving and flexible. Just by adding water you can change the paint. Also handy is the ability of making a complete painting in a short period of time due to the quick drying of the paint.”

To register for the class, contact the market at rushfordpetersonvalleymarket@gmail.com, via Facebook, or by calling the market manager at (507) 458-2547.
