The holidays are all about giving, and that’s the focus of the Gift of Giving X in the Children’s Gallery at the James A. Michener Art Museum November 13 through December 4. This annual celebration presents a selection of two-dimensional work created by students from Newtown Friends and Pen Ryn schools. After the exhibition, work will be gift wrapped and distributed to area residents affected by HIV/AIDS. Opening reception: November 13, 2 to 4 pm, with refreshments, entertainment and art activities.
Prefer to make the gifts you give? You can with the Michener’s Holiday Gift-Making Workshop December 3, 1 to 3 pm. Fee: $20 members/ $25 non-members. Every person will create a hand-made gift, have the opportunity to wrap it and create an original greeting card before they bring it home. Suitable for all ages.
