Candy canes at the Hope Center

Students at the Willard Hope Center created candy canes for Christmas decorations this December.

Everyone picked their favorite colors of clay and learned to roll them into a coil.

Students learned hand-building techniques as they rolled the sculpey into coils.

The next step was to add a third color of clay and braid them together.

Everyone enjoyed the process of creating with clay.

The next step was to bend it into a cane shape and then bake the clay.

Creating candy canes


 

DSCN0254

The Art Junction had two candy cane-making opportunities in December.

DSCN0374

We held a candy cane-making workshop at the North Fairfield United Methodist Church’s community night.

DSCN0372

We also had a family art day at the Art Junction where families could come and create candy canes.

DSCN0377

The candy canes were made out of a polymer clay that goes by the brand name of Sculpey and comes in many colors.

DSCN0381

It is a fun material to use that is easily baked in an oven or a toaster oven.

DSCN0379

This is a great project for kids of all ages.  It’s fun to mix colors, and it incorporates basic clay skills for everyone to learn.

DSCN0380

Everyone had fun as we enjoyed a large attendance at both events.  Maybe you can join us next year for this annual event at the Art Junction.

Family Art Day


DSCN5753

The Art Junction held its second Christmas Family Art day on December 1, 2012.

DSCN5764

Everyone involved explored creating candy canes from Sculpey polymer clay.

DSCN5766

Everyone enjoyed this hands-on activity.

DSCN5790

After a little instruction everyone was anxious to build their own candy cane ornament.

DSCN5799

Christmas ornaments are decorations (usually made of glass, metal, wood or ceramics) that are used to festoon a Christmas tree. Ornaments take many different forms, from a simple round ball to highly artistic designs.

DSCN5801

Ornaments are almost always reused year after year rather than purchased annually, and family collections often contain a combination of commercially produced ornaments and decorations created by family members.

DSCN5798

We had a great turnout of families, grandparents, grandchildren, friends and neighbors creating together.

DSCN5800

Everyone enjoyed the process of creating together as a community.
