COSHOCTON — "Snowman Starry Night" is the theme for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Family Paint Night from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25 at the museum, 300 N. Whitewoman Street in Coshocton.

The class is designed for you and your child to have a night out together while experiencing a different kind of fun — an inspired kind. The class is for children ages six and older.

Each person will paint his or her own 16-inch by 20-inch stretched canvas using acrylic paints. Within two hours you and your child will take home your own masterpieces.

If you’re the type of parent (or aunt, uncle, grandparent…) who is looking for a way to enjoy time with the young ones you love, this is for you. Additionally, it may give your child the opportunity to see you work at something that doesn’t come that easily.

Cost is $16 for one adult and one child; $20 for one adult and two children. Friends Family Memberships receive $3 off.

Reservations with payment must be received by Feb. 20. Payment may be made via the telephone or in person.

Museum business hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 12 to 4 p.m. on weekends.

COSHOCTON — "Getting into Mischief," the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, takes place March 8 at the museum in Coshocton.

Did you ever get a little wild and crazy in your younger days? Perhaps you remember drag racing, stealing eggs from a neighbor or sneaking into the movies with your friends.

We want to hear all the sordid details of your mischievous days growing up in Coshocton and invite you to share your memories during this hour-long discussion from 12 to 1 p.m.

JHM’s "Our Town Stories" gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 12 p.m.

The conversation animates "the old days" as we conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not.

The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising.

Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided. Bring your sandwich and make the most of your lunch break.

April’s topic is "Winter Storms."
