The City of La Porte Park and Recreation Department offers three great classes to help get into the holiday spirit. To reserve a spot in a class, call (219) 326-9600 or stop by the Park Office (250 Pine Lake Avenue).
Santa Cookie Plate Class: Join our Ceramics instructors from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, in the Ceramics Room at the Civic Auditorium to paint a plate for the holiday season. Personalize a plate with a family name, child's name, date or however you would like. The plates make a great gift. The plates will be coated with a clear glaze and fired again to be picked up Nov. 26-27. The class costs just $12, which includes the plate, all materials and firing.
Christmas Card Class: If you don't have your Christmas cards done, let alone started, register for this class from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Park Office. Participants will make four cards each of four different designs, plus a special container to hold them. Cards are not from a kit, as participants will be taught different card making techniques. The class costs just $30, which includes all materials except scissors and adhesive.
Christmas Ornament Class: Bring the entire family to our special Ceramics class from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Dec. 7, in the Ceramics Room at the Civic Auditorium. Create three decorations in plenty of time to hang on this year's Christmas tree. The cost is just $10, which includes the ornaments and all materials.
