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.

Pumpkin Day


 

The Art Junction held its first Pumpkin Painting, Designing and Carving Day on Saturday, October 20, 2012.

Even though it was a cool, blustery day we had a great turnout, and everyone had fun exploring how to design a pumpkin.

There were many pumpkins to choose from for design choices.

Everyone enjoyed all of the possibilities available in the creative process.

There were many ways to explore decorating a pumpkin as young and old joined in the process, learning from each other.  Maybe you can join us next year!
