The Steelville Arts Council’s (STARCO) annual spring Plein Air painting event officially got underway Monday with 42 artists from five states traveling to a local farm to complete paintings. They will be painting throughout the area all week leading up to meet and greet and art sale at the Steelville Community Building on Saturday.
The Steelville School District didn’t host a special event but offered recognition to staff and board members for achievements and milestones reached during the 2020-21 school year.
Summer school in Steelville this year will offer a variety of educational classes at each building.
Graduates of the Steelville High School Class of 2021 will receive a total of $319,479 in scholarships intended to assist them in further their educations and providing for their future careers.
“Our goal is to help restore Main Street Steelville and to bring back the old feel of simpler times,” said Beth Yount, who owns the newly opened Singing Butcher Shoppe with her husband Adam Yount.
