ART WATCH: Making Christmas
The holidays offer us a bit of a reprieve from the routine of daily life in many ways. One is the opportunity––and the encouragement––to be creative. From snowflakes to gingerbread houses, this is the time of year when kids and adults alike are encouraged to play with frosting, paint and paper and make art for art’s sake. Take advantage of that opportunity by attending one of these arts and crafts events in the rogue valley this season.
