During the "Family Art Time" Sunday, Feb. 2 (10 am - 4 pm), Mr. Mano, a Japanese bamboo craftsman, will visit Creative House again, this time to teach how to make a musical whistle out of clay! (okarina) Since it takes time for the clay to harden, we will make the form in the morning and carve the holes in the afternoon.
Mr. Mano will teach us how to play the okarina while we wait for them to dry. Please bring your favorite dish for a pot-luck lunch. Your okarina will be fired at Mr. Mano's home and returned to you by the end of February. This event is limited to 10 persons and the fee is ´4000. Please reserve your place by January 31.
The Saturday Art For Kids meets every Sat. from 3 - 5 pm and is limited to 10 children. The Feb. topics are as follows: 2/1 pottery (small plates); 2/8 con't of 2/1; 2/15 wax resist painting; 2/22 stained glass on bottles. For more info, call Cheryl at 36-1085.
