The Watertown Art Association stimulates and promotes the appreciation and practice of fine art in Watertown


Saturday, December 3 from 2-4 PM our creative Dream Team offers Holiday Make and Take Crafting. Catherine Campbell, Rita Smolinsky, Linda Falone and Dawn Evans Scaltreto join forces to lead participants in creating a variety of crafts to make and take as gifts to yourself or your loved ones!  Choices include a dazzling decoupage plate, artsy pendants and bookmarks, the always popular tiny paper boxes and butterfly or dragonfly pins to put inside them!  All materials and instructions will be provided and you will be able to take your crafts home with you.  This event is free and open to the public in the Innovation Space, Arsenal Project Mall, Old Navy Entrance.
