Nothing Says Love Better than Homemade



Years ago, when I was a child, my mother would sit my brothers, sister and me down on the kitchen floor to make Valentines for our grandparents.  In those days a doily and a few heart stickers and a ribbon were all we had.  Thanks to the scrap booking craze and the kind donation of flowers, ribbons, jewels, and glitter from Mary Cottom, the Beach Museum of Art’s Annual Valentine’s workshop was truly an extravaganza of lace and hearts.

There  are still a few days left for you to try this at home.  We hope you’ll join us on the first Sunday in December 2015 for our Holiday Workshop and on the first Sunday in February 2016 for more romantic bling.



Valentine’s Day is a Time to be Creative

The annual Family Valentines Workshop, held the first Sunday in February (yes, Super Bowl Sunday, but earlier in the day) is designed to inspire creativity. Tables full of supplies and no rules challenge the participants to come up with interesting ideas and to problem solve. While the product is always beautiful, the process is just as important.
