Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this mild Tuesday.

Aspiring painters can check out a unique art class this evening. Lansing Art Gallery brings Art and Ale to Midtown Brewing Co., a painting course in which all supplies — and one beer — are included. The class is for ages 21 and up.

Past courses, which have happened Tuesday nights since October, have allowed students to create and take home their own 12 x 12 inch painting on canvas, some of which will be displayed at the Lansing Art Gallery Student Art Gallery next year. There are two more sessions this year, one on November 24 and one on December 1.

6-8 p.m. $30. Midtown Brewing Co., 402 S. Washington Square, Lansing. lansingartgallery.org/artandale.
