Theme: 13th Annual Winter Social & Art Exchange + Collage Cards! 

Register here

Join us at the IPRC for our thirteenth annual winter social!

There will be our traditional exchange of art, randomly distributed among the attendees, and the fun of Collaborative Collage Cards!

The Exchange

Do not feel pressured into making 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 joy and let it bring joy to another artist in the group!

Before arriving place your 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.

During the event: each bag or box is given a number. After all the secret gifts have arrived and have been
numbered, a hat will be passed around. each person will draw a number, and match that number to the
appropriate bag, redrawing if they picked the bag they brought.

We do not trade the gifts around. We gratefully enjoy the artwork that we receive.

Activity: Collaborative Collage Cards!


● 1 5×7 piece of cardstock, watercolor paper, or mixed media paper
● Colored pencils, pens, paint markers, etc.
● washi tape, paper scraps, embellishments, cutout images, etc.
● glue or glue stick (no gel medium or ModgePodge, it takes too long to dry)

We’ll start by writing our own name on the back of our card then adding one thing to the blank card. Then we
start by handing off our card to the person to our right. The next person will add an element, then pass until the
card makes it back to the original artist.

We can all look forward to a wonderful time. This will be an opportunity for each one of us to socialize and
show off our gifts.

Guests are welcome, however it is nice to make sure they have something to exchange or bring something
extra so they can participate too.
