Winterfest:  Spotlight on Mixed Media

 

Saturday, December 2        12 - 4 p.m.

 

Fun for the Whole family.

 

Remember when winter meant snowballs and hot chocolate rather than icy roads and shoveling driveways?   Recapture the magic of winter at the Windsor Historical Society’s Winterfest on December 2 from 10 to 4.  

 

Crafts, art projects, and treats await participants of all ages at this free program. Participants can make a snowflake necklace, construct a pinecone bird feeder, paint a winter scene, cut a paper snowflake, build an igloo, decorate a sugar cookie treat, and participate in an indoor snowman-making contest. Visitors will also enjoy a display of winter clothing and toys from the Society’s collection.

 

Winterfest is offered in conjunction with the Society’s exhibition, Windsor Artists: Then and Now. This exhibition features fine and decorative artwork made by Windsor artists over the past 400 years, and is sponsored by an anonymous donor, Rabbett Insurance, the Town of Windsor through its Arts and Culture granting program, and Windsor Federal Savings.

 

Visitors are also invited to tour the Society’s permanent gallery to learn about Windsor’s rich history.  All Winterfest activities are free to the public and will be held at the Windsor Historical Society.
