Raise your hand if you have a bag of Mardi Gras beads gathering dust in your closet.
It’s time to do something constructive with those beads! Creativity knows no bounds, and Orange Beach Arts Center would like to prove that to you—with the help of Dorie Parsons.
Dorie is possibly best known for her excellent teaching skills, most recently with her local photography classes. But she is also quite resourceful and imaginative. Allow her to describe and demonstrate the techniques of turning those colorful necklaces into holiday decorations, adorable animals and other jewelry. Then let your imagination take over to create items for yourself or others
This Saturday, December 4, parade yourself, your beads and $15 to the Orange Beach Arts Center at noon. Spend the next hour playing with the easy techniques and ideas. You may have so much fun that you will look for more beads to make more items at home!
Teachers, this could lead you to a classroom art or holiday project that your students will truly enjoy, so be sure to find your stored beads before the week is over.
Right now, before you get busy with other things, call the Orange Beach Arts Center at 251-981-2787 to reserve your place in the class. Laissez les joyeux noels rouler! (Let the good Christmas times roll!)
