Metal Foil Ornament Making Workshop and Shopping Fair

December 17, 2016
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Creativity Explored

3245 16th Street

Sample metal foil ornaments and artworks by Creativity Explored artists

Celebrate the season at Creativity Explored! Make your own metal foil ornaments and shop for artful gifts.

Bring your friends and family members to this drop in workshop and shopping day while Creativity Explored artists provide the holiday inspiration. CE Visual Arts Instructor Joseph McGovern and several CE artists will lead you in the art of repoussé. Try out this age-old technique using modern day materials to create metal foil ornaments that can be used as garland, notecards, gift cards, decoration, or artworks to give away as gifts.

Plus, the gallery and studio will be filled with thousands of affordable paintings, drawings, sculptures, mixed media, and digital works for sale in our annual Holiday Art Shop. Half the proceeds from the sale of every artwork support local Creativity Explored artists, so give artwork this holiday season!

Special Bonus: Creativity Explored studio artist Vincent Jackson will be signing packets of his new Portrait notecards. Get your signed pack and meet this inspiring character who has been making art at CE for over 30 years.
