Arts & Crafts for Kids
Make a Holiday Masterpiece!

About The Event

At our art class, kids will create their own take-home artwork – inspired by the Immersive Nutcracker! Presented by professional art teachers, kids aged 6+ (and youngsters under 6 with a caretaker) will enjoy this 45-minute holiday-themed activity – all supplies included. Kids will also be treated to a delicious cup of “Sugar Plum” hot cocoa with an oversized marshmallow and whipped cream!
