Gallery on the go teaches painting skills
RHINELANDER -
Local women picked up paint brushes and learned how to create a masterpiece from an empty canvas today.

Kelly Smith travels around the Northwoods hosting painting events. Gallery on the Go with Kelly provides canvases, paint, and personal guidance to help people create new works of art. Smith says the lack of local painting opportunities like this inspired her to start teaching her classes.


"When I first started doing gallery on the go, I started it because most of the events were either out of town or on week nights in the evenings," said Smith. She gives step-by-step instructions to her students and makes sure to pay attention to every detail.

Nora Towne says the class helped her and her daughter bond over a fun activity.

"It's very important, especially with today. Most of them are on either their computers or the tablets," said Towne. "It's nice to have that one-on-one time to just sit down, talk to them, how are things going. Be able to have that open dialogue and something fun to do together."

Smith has an upcoming kids class, Kids and Kanvas, on December 15th at Pelican Town Hall. More information can be found on https://www.facebook.com/events/432449487454936/.

PHELPS - The small town of Phelps celebrates the 4th of July in a big way every year. But due to the coronavirus, organizers like Amy Thomason had to get a bit creative this year.

"We felt it was really important to find a way to celebrate 4th of July even with all that's going on," said Thomason.

Rather than cancel its popular parade, the town decided to move it to the lake.

"A lot of our community organizations are decorating boats," said Thomason. "It's just a great way to celebrate the 4th of July and keep our social distance. We're all in our own boats."

WISCONSIN - Coronavirus cases are on the rise globally as well -- further stressing the global supply chain for personal protective equipment. Newswatch 12 spoke with Senator Tammy Baldwin on Wednesday. She called the lack of federal response to COVID-19 inexcusable.

"I think about how different things would've been today if in the earliest days President Trump had used the something called the Defense Production Act," said Baldwin.

Senator Baldwin argues this would've made sure all the personal protection equipment we needed would have been produced. She says different hospitals and health care facilities have been competing over the same equipment.
