Event to fund art class scholarships
SYCAMORE – An art show to honor the memory of a local artist is planned for May 16.
Nicole Parlette began taking art classes at The Art Attack, 215 W. Elm St. in Sycamore, while she was still a student in high school. After graduation, she joined the Art Attack Artist Co-op and taught at the community art school.
Parlette died in December 2012. A fund has been started at The Art Attack in her memory to provide scholarships for low-income children to attend art classes. On Thursday, May 16 – Parlette’s birthday – The Art Attack is planning an art show from 6 to 8 p.m. to benefit the Nikki Fund.
There will be an art sale, artists creating on-site and special events throughout the evening.
