HOPE, Ark.—Two art workshops will soon be presented by the Southwest Arkansas Arts Council.

Sue Allen Pico of Benton, billed as the Arts Lady of Arkansas, will present two three-hour sessions for students, 9 a.m. to noon July 29-30.

Activities include paper kaleidoscopes, boxes constructed from Christmas cards, decotropes (optical illusion toys) and booklets created from a single sheet of paper. Students will also work on making games, masks, bracelets and more.

There is no charge but for any parent attending/helping children, there will be a $10 fee. The class is limited to 20 children (first grade through high school).

Pico will also present two classes for adults the same days, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The first night the workshop will focus on creating colored Ukrainian eggs. Attendees will learn the technique of preparing the raw egg for the process and how to apply designs of one color.

If time allows, students (who should bring six raw eggs to the Monday session) will be shown how to apply multiple colors on the eggs. Cost is $10 per person with a limit of 20 students.

The Tuesday session will be "a fun-filled three hours," Pico said. "Attendees will learn fun activities to do with children and it's open to parents, grandparents, teachers and any other interested person," she said.

Titled "Easy Projects You can Make with Your Kids," the session will teach how to work with children to make home crafts that "will delight kids of all ages," she said.

To sign up, contact the SWAAC at 870-777-8200 or email gsid143@gmail.com. Checks can be mailed to SWAAC, Box 1004, Hope, AR 71801, or dropped by the Arts Station at 200 E. Division St. in Hope.
