Washington Center students are celebrating the holidays with glitter and glitz.

In Amanda Wakely's Adaptive Art, classes learned that different cultures around the world send cards as greetings. Many were surprised to hear that the ancient Egyptians even left greetings on papyrus scrolls.

The students created their own set of Holiday cards using tin foil, tissue paper, glitter and confetti in a mixed media collage.They chose a variety of holiday symbols to paste on the outside of their card and a special message for the inside.

To add to their set, they each made a poinsettia card. Students helped tear out pages in magazines that contained the colors red or green to be cut out as petals and leaves. They had the choice of pasting or sponge-painting petals and leaves in a flower pattern.

The students are hoping to spread warm wishes with their handmade cards this holiday season.
