Enjoy hot chocolate while we create a variety of holiday-related crafts, such as wrapping paper, ornaments, a paper lantern, and felt holiday cookies. We will discuss examples of related works of art by diverse artists who create paintings on cookies such as Jasmine Cho and Ella Hawkins, and who create paintings of cookies, cakes and pastries like Wayne Thiebaud. Students are encouraged to attend all sessions since we will need the weeks in between our classes for our projects to dry.
