Wednesdays: December 4 and 11th 10-1pm
What holiday ornament or decoration is the one that your family loves best (or fights over)? Where did it come from? Who does it belong to? Why is it a treasure? Bring it or a photo of it, and a writing pen and journal. We’ll work with watercolor and ink to create original artwork suitable for framing, reproducing or giving. All levels welcome. Art materials list available in store or after registration.
