There is something fun going on downtown Sevierville on Saturdays— and it is free! The workshops are welcome to everyone, young and old. You don’t even have to be good with your hands because an artist will guide you through the process. It is time for the Spring 2018 Sevierville Commons Arts Council ‘Make It and Take It’ workshops. I visited last Saturday and here is what I saw.
It was a sunny day on Bruce Street and nice to be out and about. I arrived after 12:00 to find the room busy.
There are a lot of things to see. Just walk in and say “hello.” You will be invited to come back and make something special to take home.
The workshop on Saturday instructed participants how to make beaded necklaces.
I didn’t make this one, but admired it. I liked the moon and starfish charms.
The Sevierville Commons Arts Council won a grant that provides materials to create things in the workshops. Donations are accepted too.
Children accompanied by an adult can actively participate and create in the workshops. They love it!
A second workshop was taking place called Jelly painting. The designs were so interesting and pretty.
These young artists created some beautiful designs. I admired them all!
Check this schedule for more workshops throughout the spring.
Here is information on a June fundraiser for the organization. These aren’t your typical rockers!
Here is something the organization will be doing on the Saturday before Easter. Drop by!
This is one of the best things to do downtown in the spring. It is free and family friendly. Furthermore, this organization is significantly contributing to the vitality and revitalization of downtown Sevierville. Come check it out when you are out and about in Sevierville.
I’ll share some the pretty jelly painting designs by the young artists on Saturday. They wanted me to take pictures of their work, so here they are!
