Painting at Whet Your Palette

Katherine Scholtz

I went to Whet Your Palette to paint a picture with my favorite tutor, Marianne Humphries.  Before we went we ate lunch together at Down Syndrome of Louisville.  I made a picture of a unicorn on a canvas with acrylic paints.  I will give the picture to my niece, Olivia, for her birthday.  I enjoyed painting.  It was very calming and very relaxing.  I really want to go back there again sometime soon!

By Adam Jackson
The Derby is hosted at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday  of May.

bats are made here.

The Louisville Zoo has 1,700 animals.

Louisville  football is exciting!

#8 Lamar JacksonPosition: QB
First UofL football player to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated

Louisville is a fun time. You can go to the movies,  go  bowling and go  out to eat.  Going to  a football game at Papa John’s Stadium to see Louisville is fun when they win.   The UL football team is cool.  It's my favorite.  Lots of people, like my parents go to Derby and I go to the Oaks on the day before Derby. Seeing the Louisville Bats and going to the Slugger Museum is fun too.
