LCVA’s Art after Dark is ‘All Wrapped Up’

Published 12:24 pm Thursday, November 5, 2015

A new Art after Dark is coming to Longwood Center for the Visual Arts Wednesday at 6 p.m. Longwood Art Education Professor Kelly Nelson will show participants how to make their own wrapping paper and cards for the upcoming holiday season.

Cover your world with snowflakes, candy canes or bows in preparation for the time of gift-giving, card-sending and decorations. Doors open at 6 p.m. for refreshments, and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m. All supplies and materials will be provided.

Art after Dark replaces the formal “lecture” format normally associated with museums with interdisciplinary activities such as this art workshop. All activities are made possible in part through the generous support of the Longwood Parent’s Council and by the Walter J. Payne Foundation.
