As the season of giving approaches, the Tioga Arts Council (TAC) needs help with two holiday initiatives this year.
TAC invites community members to participate in a renewed collaborative art event, open to creative’s of all ages and skill levels. It is called “Artfully Ornamental”.
Similar in spirit to artfully SQUARED, participants can use any medium to make an ornament (or as many as you want), donate it to TAC, and/or purchase an original ornament for you or a loved one this holiday season.
Until sold, ornaments will be displayed in TAC’s Gallery beginning on Dec. 1 through Dec. 23. All ornaments will be available for a $10 donation.
There is no fee to enter, and all proceeds will benefit TAC. Visit https://clt368125.bmetrack.com/c/l?u=CE9B215&e=132DEAD&c=59DFD&t=0&l=29BD8998&email=%2FHrl6m7hITGLzG50oi8SDwAgONacHlWf&seq=1 to access the registration form.
Entries are due on a rolling basis. Consider donating an ornament (or a set) and getting your friends, family, and (if applicable) students involved.
TAC wants to help spread holiday cheer this year by making 300 handmade cards and delivering them to Riverview Manor Health Care and Elderwood at Waverly. To do this, they need your help!
If you, your family, or your friends want to participate, create a winter scene (or what inspires you) on a piece of construction paper; on the inside, write “Happy Holidays” or “Seasons Greetings”; sign your First Name only; deliver the cards to the Tioga Arts Council at 179 Front St. by Friday, Dec. 9. Their team will deliver them the week of Dec. 12-16. (Note: Pre-made cards are accepted.)
