LA GRANGE – Painted Rubbish, a relatively new vintage furniture and boutique shop at 20 W. Harris Ave., is offering free art classes for children 5 to 10 years old.

The classes , which will take place Wednesdays from 1 to 2 p.m. and Thursdays from 5 to 6 p.m., will allow kids to use eco-friendly paints to make cool and funky things, the store said on its Facebook page.

Sign up is required no less than one day in advance. Call the store at 708-469-7934 to sign up.

Teenagers can also get involved at Painted Rubbish without spending anything. The store offers teens free use of studio space to work on their own projects any day of the week unless a workshop or class is going on in the space. Teens can bring their own supplies or rent from the store.
