This January, try something new. Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs have tons of arts & crafts class options, where participants can learn a new skill and go home with something handmade.
Below is a roundup of classes to try this month. One is for children, while the rest are for adults.
Children are invited to the Art Dept. for an afternoon craft session. All materials will be provided to make whimsical winter-themed crowns.
At home, kids can use their handmade craft to play pretend as Elsa from Disney's "Frozen," as a winter fairy or as whatever character their imagination creates.
