Christmas in July Santa Claus fundraiser  with text.jpg

Join us for our annual Summer Art Camp fundraiser!

When the weather outside is frightfully hot, come join us for a little wintry fun at the Belger Crane Yard Studios on Saturday, July 14th! Bring a buddy and come beat the heat while glaze decorating a pre-made ceramic Santa Claus. Whether you paint it in traditional colors or get wild and abstract, we'll take care of all the firing and you'll be able to pick up it up later or pay a little extra to have it shipped home - no chimney required.  We'll have great music and delicious themed treats and snacks from local businesses to keep you going.   

There will be two versions of the event: one family-friendly in the afternoon and one adults-only in the evening.  

Ticket proceeds go toward scholarships for our Summer Art Camp!

Saturday, July 14
2-4pm and 6-8pm
$75 per couple
Please be sure to specify which event you will be participating in.
