Looking for a diversion during the cold, dreary days of January? The Middletown Art Center (MAC) has creative options: low-cost workshops in a variety of media. Explore dry point etching in a January 5 printmaking class; play with words at a January 12 writing workshop; learn to make armatures in a January 19 metalwork class; and mess around with clay in a January 26 sculpture class. Workshops are held 1-5 p.m., cost $5, and are open to kids ages 12 and up. Note the metalwork class requires that an adult accompany 12-16-year-olds. Register for the workshops at middletownartcenter.org/restore.html.
