It's time for our annual holiday party and gift exchange. This fun event includes pastries, socializing, and the exchange of handmade artwork.
Before arriving place your piece of artwork in a brown paper bag. Do NOT show anyone what you have made, it is a surprise. That's it! NO fancy wrapping.
We will put a number on each bag. After all the secret gifts have arrived and have been numbered, a hat will be passed around. each person will draw a number and match that number to the appropriate bag, redrawing if they picked the bag they brought.
We do not trade the gifts around. We gratefully enjoy the artwork that we receive.
Do not feel pressured into making something spectacular, this is just an chance to gift someone with a simple token of your own expression. You can go with something seasonal or not, again make something that brings you joy and let it bring joy to another artist in the group!
Guests are welcome, however it is nice to make sure they have something to exchange or bring something extra so they can participate too. Drop-ins and guests are free for this event!
We can all look forward to a wonderful time. This will be an opportunity for each one of us to socialize and show off our gifts. If you have not come to a meeting this year, it is a fantastic time to get back in the groove!
