Kids to get crafty with wintertime creations

A free ARTSaturday program for elementary school-aged children and their families will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 8, at the Macon County library.

The Macon County Arts Council will provide all materials and instruction for several make-and-take projects, including personalized 2011 calendars, cotton batting snowman collages, soap flake snowmen and pine cone bird feeders.

ARTSaturday always features live music by keyboardist Lionel Caynon and coloring projects. Children should wear play clothes and come for any part of the session.

The monthly ARTSaturday series is produced by the Arts Council of Macon County and is supported by the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.

Registration is not necessary, just show up. Adults must stay with their children. 828.524.7683 or www.artscouncilofmacon.org.
