MAC Center for the Arts 5th Annual Holiday Craft Workshop

in Arts and Entertainment/Newport

NEWPORT — Break out your holiday spirit and release your imagination, because the MAC Center for the Arts is holding its 5th Annual Handmade Holiday Craft Workshop. 

The event is free for kids ages 8 and up, although donations are appreciated. 

Each child will have the opportunity to make three or four ornaments to take home with them. 

They include a folded paper Christmas tree, a bean and lentil covered star, and a modern tin art ornament made with aluminum foil.
The workshop will be held in the MAC’s downstairs classroom, located at 158 Main Street in Newport, on December 5, at 9:30 a.m. 

The activities will take 1 to 1 ½ hours to complete, so you will be done in time for the Santa parade. 
Pre-registration is required and seating is limited.
