NDCA Invites Families to Make Handmade Ornaments for the State Christmas Tree

     The North Dakota Council on the Arts (NDCA) invites Theo Art School families to provide handmade ornaments for the North Dakota State Christmas Tree. The tree will be on display in the Memorial Hall of the State Capitol, and Governor Jack and First Lady Betsy Dalrymple will participate in tree-lighting ceremony Thursday, December 8, 2016, at 5:30 p.m.
     Submitted ornaments can vary from traditional to contemporary arts. Items that are commercially produced or made from kits are not eligible. This year's motif is snowmen ornaments, but ornaments can also be of any shape or medium of the designer's choosing. Each ornament should include the name of the person entering it and a brief one- or two-line description of the ornament that includes the art form used and the special circumstances through which it was created, such as our Annual Event at Theo! A descriptive listing will be available at the ceremony and will be mailed to everyone who submits an ornament.
     Ornaments must be received in the NDCA office no later than Thursday, November 10, 2016. The ornaments become the property of the NDCA, and may be hung on the state tree in ensuing years.
