First Pick Friday's this December / by Mary Jennings

This time of year, I go nuts making stuff. I love it!! I also happen to love providing welcoming environments for others to discover the joy that comes with making things and learning new artistic skills. FIRST PICK FRIDAY'S is a mix of all that.  See the information below and get moving!

WHAT IS FIRST PICK?

When I lead art offerings on Saturday's at the Salamander Resort and Spa, I have a group of about four classes on a list for the guests to choose from.  The first person to reserve a class gets to select the what we will be doing that day. It ranges from social painting and pyrography to sketchbook creation or painting outside. It's fun for the guests to be rewarded for their decisiveness and quick actions.  

For you, I want to offer something special at my studio location in Falls Church (920 W. Broad Street, Falls Church, VA).  During the first three Friday's in December, I will open my studio to people who wish to shop, create in their own little space or catch a fun art class. Either way, they will feel welcomed and leave inspired; knowing that Friday's have the capacity to be even better than imagined before.

Being creative is the best way to end your work week and lead into the weekend. This time of year can get extra stressful with the busy holiday schedule.  First Pick Friday's are designed to be fun and functional. They will lift your spirits or as I like to say, yourcreattitude will be in better shape for certain. 

The key is, to make your reservation FIRST (with a two person minimum) 

Friday, December 2, 2016, 12:00-8:00pm OPEN CREATIVE TIME with a First Pick Workshop from 6:00-8:00pm. Be the first to reserve two and you get to choose from Pyrography, Floorcloth, Holiday Ornament, or Social Painting.

If you wish to take a workshop on the above dates from 6-8pm, the cost is $15.00.  This is a super special offer that I had to make because I love to make things this time of year and would love to share that joy with others.  Come join me!
