Join us for our first ever art workshop. Our workshop will be lead by Suzanna Pajda who has lead art workshops for kids and families around the world! Our first workshop will teach participants how to make their own Halloween decorations. We'll provide you all the supplies you'll need and by the end of the workshop, you'll know how to decorate your entire home or office. Parents are welcome to participate in this workshop, so don't be shy if you love to create things yourself. If you just want to help your child you only need to sign your child up, but if you want to make some yourself just sign up too! We have room for 20 participants.

Also, there will be a live auction for a signature item, which we will announce later on. Tickets are $35.00 and are available on Eventbrite or at the door. All proceeds, including a percentage of wine sales, will directly benefit the OCSM and as we continue our historical role as a space for the education of science and the arts.
