The Copper Country Associated Artists Gallery on Fifth St. attracted a large crowd for their Holiday Ornament / Decoration workshop on Nov. 4, 2011.
The CCAA Gallery provided materials so each visitor could create a Christmas ornament -- assisted by fabric artists Karen Secor and Millie Little.
From paper plate to Christmas ornament ...
Holiday workshop participants concentrate on their creations.
Tiny objects make simple but attractive ornaments for the holidays.
The CCAA Gallery has many works of art by local artists for exhibit and sale. Here are some Santas by Lynn Torola.
