Mixed-Media Collage Artists Guild Winter Social & Art Exchange

December 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

a member of the Collage Guild is holding a colorful handmade christmas tree

Join the Mixed-Media Collage Artists Guild for their 12th annual winter social, art exchange, and an add-and-pass postcard project!

The Exchange

Before arriving place a piece of artwork in a brown paper bag. Do NOT show anyone what you have made, it is a surprise. That’s it! NO fancy wrapping.

Each bag or box is given a number, as people arrive. After all the secret gifts have arrived and have been numbered, each person will draw a number, and match that number to the appropriate bag/box, redrawing if they picked the bag they brought.

We do not trade gifts around, this isn’t a “white elephant” exchange. We gratefully enjoy the artwork we receive.

Please don’t feel pressure to make something spectacular, this is just a chance to gift someone with a simple token of your own expression. You can go with something seasonal or not, again make something that brings you joyand let it bring joy to another artist in the group!

Activity: Add-and-Pass Postcards

• 1 5×7 piece of cardstock, watercolor paper, or mixed media paper

• Colored pencils, pens, paint markers, etc.
