WWU offers Christmas crafting for children

Christmas
is a time for family and friends. The cool weather and cheerful music bring
people together, uniting them with gift giving, caroling or even crafting.
This
year, the William Woods University Thriving Artist Group (T.A.G.) and Kemper
Kids invite local families to create Christmas crafts with them from 9:30 a.m.
to 4 p.m. Dec. 8, in the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts.
Kemper
Kids Create Christmas is open to children grades K-8th. The children
will be divided by grade levels to keep activities age appropriate. Children
will have the opportunity to create Christmas ornaments and decorations,
jewelry, cards and wrapping paper. A Christmas movie will be shown at lunch
while the young artists sip hot chocolate and munch on festive treats and play
games.
The
event cost is $25 per child, and $15 for additional siblings. Children will
need to pack a sack lunch, but a snack and drink in the afternoon will be
provided, along with all art supplies.
“Kemper
Kids Create Christmas will be a super fun opportunity for children to spend the
whole day playing, creating and enjoying the excitement of the holidays,” Erica
Begley, T.A.G. president, said.
“The
kids will get to have their own workshop and be able to make Christmas gifts
for loved ones that can be just from them. The all-day event will be
interactive, engaging and full of Christmas cheer.”
Registration
is open until 6 p.m. Dec. 5. Registration forms can be picked up and dropped off
in room 120 of the Kemper Arts Center, or a copy can be emailed. For more
information, contact Jennifer Sain at (573) 592-4245 or Jennifer.Sain@williamwoods.edu.
