Cost: $25 Members, $30 Non-Members Thursday October 9 from 10am-noon, break to let color dry, from 1-3pm finish pumpkins Please register by October 8! Pumpkins are undoubtedly the reigning motif of the Fall season, and from early September through Thanksgiving, we adorn our homes with them in as many ways as possible. While pumpkin carving has been the classic way to decorate your pumpkin for Halloween, enterprising DIYers are choosing to really flex their creative muscles by painting pumpkins to create lasting seasonal decor. Virginia will explain every step, and will teach you how to paint and decorate your own pumpkin to create a stunning piece for the holidays! Please bring your own pumpkin and we will provide all the other supplies! How to Choose the Right Pumpkin? The perfect paintable pumpkin will be one without blemishes, particularly without any rotten spots. If you want to incorporate some warts or other features into your design, go ahead! Otherwise, it's important to look for a pumpkin with shallower ribbing to give you an easier surface to paint on. You should always clean your pumpkin first. Wipe it down with a sanitizing wipe or with a soft cloth and some mild soap. This helps to remove dirt and grime to give you a clean surface to paint on, and it also removes bacteria that might speed up the rotting process.
