Crayon Art Workshop

Event Description

Crayon Art Workshop.   In the early 1900s, cousins Edwin Binney and Harold Smith developed a nontoxic wax crayon.  Binney’s wife, Alice, attached the French word for chalk, “craie”, with “ola,” from oily, to form the Crayola® brand name. Their first box of crayons was sold for a nickel in 1903. Crayola® has added a lot of different products since that time, but it’s amazing what beautiful artwork you can make with a simple little box of crayons, some fabric, and a lot of imagination. Workshop is limited to 10 people. Children under 10 years old must be accompanied by an adult to attend. Call 336-325-2298 by August 1 to enroll. 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Fee: $30.00 plus sales tax.
