Slight change of plans!  We’ve heard from lots of people who are excited about the ornaments…but unable to make it to a specific workshop. So instead of hosting an organized painting session, we’ll just include the KY ornaments in our Paint-Your-Own Pottery inventory. You can drop in anytime the Arts Center is open (11am to 7pm Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 5pm Saturdays) from November 18th through December 16th and paint an ornament. The KY ornaments are $7 each and the fee includes all materials.
