Everyday Heroes Creative Workshop

Do you want to find a unique way to express your gratitude to the “Everyday Heroes” in your life? In this one-session workshop, instructor and artist Jennifer Penick will guide you in designing and making one or more original medals. You could make a medal as an award for your postal worker, delivery person, nurse or doctor, dog-walker, family member, neighbor—anyone who has made your life a little easier.

Medals can be made of many materials, such as cardboard or paper decorated with collage, markers, paint, pens, colored pencils, ribbon, found objects and more. Gather your art supplies (including scissors and glue) and Jennifer will help you create a special medal to give to a special person


This workshop is FREE but requires advance registration.
