Please join HCCC for HANDS-ON HOUSTON on Saturday, November 2nd, to create an architecturally inspired sun catcher for your window. Participants will learn to imitate stained-glass art by creating a colorful design with markers on clear acrylic. The piece will then be framed in cardstock to take home.

Before or after the activity, view real stained-glass artworks by artist Nancy Nicholson, who is currently featured in SPRAWL in the main gallery. Like Nancy and many other artists in the exhibition, we hope you will be inspired by architectural structures and the urban landscape of Houston to create a unique design.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free craft-activity open house on the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome, and materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product and history of craft.
