Put a handmade gift under the tree with Nelson 4Cats

This holiday season, let your kids join in the fun at 4Cats Arts Studio to create wonderful masterpieces that they can give as gifts to friends and family.

4Cats is offering a special “Give the Gift” program for children ages two to 15, to make that gift that money just can’t buy. You can drop your children off at the arts studio, rush around town to do your own shopping, and then return to find hand-crafted treasures just waiting to be wrapped up.

4Cats is also offering single themed workshops for children, families and even adults. Want to create a winter polymer clay portrait of Mom? Dad? Grandma on skis? Would any special family members appreciate a playful penguin sculpture with a hand-painted home? Or a fantastic glittery snow globe complete with a unique clay character? Using professional art materials, let our smiling curators guide your child in creating a treasured keepsake for someone special.

For the first time in Nelson, 4Cats is letting parents in on the fun as well. There will be special family events, including making a winter family portrait, building a gingerbread house, and celebrating artist Paul Klee’s birthday with a special parent-child workshop. It’s also a great place to host your work parties, so make sure to call ahead and book early.

You can sign your children up for any of the December classes by visiting the 4Cats website at 4cats.com/nelson or giving the studio a call at 250-354-CATS. Schedules and prices are available online or on location at 524A Victoria St
