Falls Church Arts Gets Crafty with Free Valentine’s Card Workshop

The nonprofit Falls Church Arts is offering a free, online Valentine’s card-making workshop for anyone looking for some artistic inspiration.

The class is scheduled to place on Saturday (Feb. 6) from 10 a.m. to noon. It will be run by Arlington artist Molly McCracken, who works primarily with collage, assemblage, and acrylic painting, according to her official website.

“This will be lots of fun and perfect for all ages,” the event posting says.

Event organizers say participants should use whatever materials they have on hand, but suggestions include:

  • a variety of solid and patterned papers, including card stock or heavyweight papers
  • scissors
  • glue stick or adhesive
  • blank note cards
  • pens, markers, colored pencils, crayons
  • ribbons
  • hole punch
  • embellishments such as stickers, glitter, sequins, and doilies

Registration is required to receive a link to the Zoom event, and the workshop size is limited. Questions can be sent to [email protected]
