It was a fun Thursday afternoon at the Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council when 40 kids painted St. Patrick’s Day-themed masterpieces at the annual spring break Paint the Town event.

The session was led by Stephenville native Stephanie Peacock Beach, an artist who also teaches painting out of her home in Fort Worth.

“This is our biggest year yet,” said CTFAC Executive Director Julie Crouch-Smith. “We’ve just had an overwhelming response and I’m so happy. Stephanie brings a whole new perspective to this and she has a lot of experience teaching kids.”

Kids painted a rainbow with a pot of gold and shamrocks.
