The holidays are a busy time for Darien parents, but thankfully the season also presents a great opportunity for young hands to create art! The Darien Arts Center’s Holiday Workshop, returning for its 17th year, helps children craft decorations, and helps moms get some shopping done!
For 90 minutes, children aged 5 and up are happy little elves, making snowmen from Paris-craft. While these Snowmen are drying, students rotate through several creative stations. Finally, the snowmen are dressed up in their finest buttons, hats and scarves.
The class is lead by long-time DAC Birthday Party Coordinator Joyce Bottone, who offers many holiday workshops throughout the year, including the upcoming Valentine’s and Easter Workshops. The workshops provide a creative outlet and result in special themed decorations you can cherish for years to come. DAC Workshops involve students in the act of creating, different methods and media, providing them with an artistic outlet without the commitment of an ongoing class. All workshops are affordable and accessible to young students.
The Holiday Workshop costs $25 and will take place at the DAC’s Visual Arts Studio behind Darien Town Hall from 2-3:30pm on Saturday, December 15th. For more information or to register, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the DAC Office at (203) 655-8683.
