Information for the Winter Wonderland Workshop on January 3, 2019!


   We are so excited to have your child joining us on Friday January 3rd for our Winter Wonderland Workshop located in Parkside Hall, at St Barnabas Church, 468 Bradley Rd., Bay Village, Ohio, 44140!  

      The workshop will begin at 10:00 am but feel free to arrive a few minutes early if you would like.  We will be painting and students could get a little messy so please have your child wear clothing that you do not mind getting messy or bring a paint shirt to cover their clothes.  We will be having pizza, baked lays, apple slices, a cookie and juice or water for lunch.  Please let me know if your student has any allergies that we need to be aware of.  

      Attached to this e-mail is an emergency contact information sheet that needs to be filled out for every student.  This can be done ahead and brought with you or can be filled out on site.   In addition there is also a photo release form with the emergency form as we will be taking pictures for our website.  If you do not feel comfortable with your student being photographed there is a place to indicate that as well.  

       Finally, I am a huge believer that your children’s hard work and artistic talents should be shown off and shared at every opportunity because their art matters.  Flourishing Flamingo Arts will be using the online art gallery, Artsonia, as a forum to show off our students’ work. This will require you to give permission for your child’s work to be displayed in this online gallery and they will be given a screen name that consists of only their first name. Once they complete works of art at our workshops a photo will be taken of it and put online where you can view it, and share it with family and friends who love to see what your student is doing. You will receive an email from Artsonia asking you to grant permission and set up an account for their work.  If you do not wish for your students’ work to be public, that is absolutely ok too. The website is artsonia.com if you would like to explore the program.
     If you have any questions at all do not hesitate to e-mail or call.  We cannot wait for Friday!  It will be an amazing Day!!!!
