Each year the Irving Art Association participates in “Christmas Card Workshops” for children at the Irving Arts Center. We do a number of Christmas-themed crafts besides the cards, including face painting, ATCs, and prints. This year I bought the materials for making wrapping paper and this was a big hit. Last Christmas and this year, I did gelli plate prints using tempera paint with the kids. This year Linda Shotwell assisted me. We used holiday-themed masks that I had created and stencils we had purchased. Lots of fun!
The workshops are held on the Open House on the first Friday in December, plus the next three Saturdays. Unfortunately the Great Ice Storm of 2013 cancelled the party for the first weekend. I did make the second Saturday workshop, but the flu struck me down for the last workshop. So here are photos from the only one I participated in:
