Help us Paint the Nutcracker set!

Painting the Nutcracker Set

Come join us as we paint a new Land of the Sweets and Snow Scene at the old Alpine Experience building downtown until October 15th. We will be painting most weekdays as well as some evenings and Saturdays. All skill levels are welcome. Most will be paint by numbers style of painting and some will be cutting, gluing and adding netting to the cut out drops.

We are painting some evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons. There is a sign up sheet in the studio to sign up to come paint. The building is on Olympia and Adams St. downtown, 1 block from Children’s Museum. There is free street parking evenings and weekends, daytimes there are lots of metered parking near by (the parking spaces in the lot are leased to the Children’s Museum and are not available to us). Wear paint clothes, and bring a water bottle, it does get warm in the afternoon.

If you have questions, just email Jill!
