KIDS! Make your own HOLIDAY GIFTS! (after school)
with Melanie Levitt & Lori Stearns
In this 4 week after school class, students will spend time doing something fun & creative while also making unique holiday gifts for their loved ones! Each week we will create one gift and it will come home all wrapped up in hand made wrapping paper. Projects include: penguin paintings, mosaic initial plaques, hand painted snowman glasses, clay impression ornaments, holiday cards, & hand stamped wrapping paper. Why buy gifts when you can make them yourself? If students miss a class, supplies from that class will be sent home for them to finish on their own! At the end of the four weeks, everything will be wrapped up and ready to put under the tree! Students from Jackson & Bartlett can take the bus to Jackson Art but need to arrange with the school and let us know if they are arriving on the bus. Please pack a snack/drink to bring to class. Wednesdays, Nov 28- Dec 19 (4 session) 4-5 pm $88 Ages 6-14 yrs
