STAUNTON--- A small business is supporting teens who want to become artists through a unique event.
The business, Turtle Lane, hosted an event on September 27 with the theme of Marilyn Monroe.
The business was purchased with help from the Staunton Community Fund.
They hope to support local artists, like 17 year old Abbey Noelle, who was featured.
Owner Becca Schneider said, "She is debuting all of her great new artwork, she does pencil sketches, and her first main character this she is drawing is Marilyn Monroe."
Artist Abbey Noelle said, "I find her very fascinating, and I just think that her character was definitely special, and there was a lot people don't know about her that you can feel through the drawings."
Turtle Lane hosts an artist open house every month.
