Years ago, when I first met my stepmother, Maryann, I discovered that she collected nativities.  This discovery has made giving her gifts so much fun over the years as I love to make or find unique additions for her collection, some of which have included a dried orange peel nativity, a thumbprint nativity, and a light-up Pinhole Box Diorama Nativity I made in college.  She appreciates each bizarre addition as much as the next, which is really cool.  This class is dedicated to her.

Inspired by the miniature creations the famous sculptor Alexander Calder made for his suitcase wielding ‘Cirque Calder’, we will spend our holiday workshop learning about this wonderful artist and his magical circus, and use his creative inspiration to manipulate similar bits of Calder’s wire, wood, paper, clay and cloth, among other materials, to form our very own little whimsical nativities,… (and give you a few precious hours to get some errands checked off your to-do list)!

At the end of class we will stage a little personal nativity photo shoot to send you a photo from, which your family can use for spreading additional holiday cheer to loved ones near and far!

Class will be held in my studio at 2435 S. Peoria (located in the upstairs of the Carriage House directly behind the Tulsa Garden Center).  Please send a snack and drink with your child.

Class sign-up can be found below.  Please contact me with any questions or if you are finding it a struggle to sign up, as I will do my best to help troubleshoot or add sessions if need be.  I hope to see you there, but if not, I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your family the most happy of holidays yet to be had!
