Artist Caprice Erickson (left) shows her young protégés how to mix colors with acrylic paints as they take the next step in creating their pictures during the Canvas & Cookies event Thursday, Jan. 30, at the Huntington City-Township Public Library. About 14 children in grades 6 to 12 participated in the class, in which they copied one of Erickson's paintings.
