NOVEMBER 2012 holiday events 11/17


Snowflake Workshop Westchester Community College Center for Digital Arts


Snowflakes have always symbolized winter and the holidays, but since no two of the geomet- ric ice crystals are the same and, collectively, they blanket the world in a quiet atmosphere of white, they can also be considered to symbolize individuality, peace and purity. In this creative, enjoyable workshop, instructor Aurelio Castano will teach participants how to make a beauti-


ful, beaded six-point snowflake using Swarovski crystals. Your handmade work of art can be worn as a necklace or turned into a holiday ornament. Castano, who holds a B.S. in Arts from Empire State College, is currently a beading instructor at the Westchester Community College Center for the Arts.
