What’s a family holiday season without cookies, milk and holiday art projects? Bring your kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews to spend some quality time at Nickel Plate Arts and participate in holiday-themed art projects - perfect for gifting (or keeping!). Get artsy with your Christmas celebration by participating in the kid’s version of a “wine and canvas” event and enjoy sweet treats while working on an art project. Santa’s Workshop will feature hour and a half art sessions guided by local artist and art teacher Darlene Patterson. Each Saturday will feature a new and different holiday-themed project for mini artists (beginners: ages 5-8) and young artists (advanced: ages 9-14). Sign-up for one or all sessions! This family holiday event is sure to be magical for artists of all ages. See below for project descriptions.
