Silhouette artist at Learning Express Toys

ALGONQUIN – One of the top silhouette artists in the world will demonstrate her little-known craft from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday at Learning Express Toys, 117 S. Randall Road, Algonquin.

Cindi Rose is stopping in Algonquin during a tour of Learning Express Toys stores that also will take her to Geneva, Countryside and Glen Ellyn.

Rose cuts silhouettes of individuals using French silhouette paper. She looks at her subject and begins working – there are no shadows, sketching or tracing involved. Each silhouette only takes about a minute to complete.

Rose schedules appointments in five-minute increments. There are still several open spots for her Thursday appearance, and walk-ins will be accepted to fill in any gaps on the schedule.

Appointments cost $30, with a $10 deposit required beforehand. To schedule a time, call Learning Express Toys at 847-458-4701.
