EBSQ Spotlight on Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season – Rebecca M. Ronesi

This month’s featured gallery is Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season.  The month of December brings us Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year’s Eve. It is a month of festivities and reflection. Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season appears once a year in month of December and is always a favorite. From now until the end of the year, we are going to take a few moments to catch up with some of the EBSQ artists that create for this season of celebration.

Hot Pink Dragon Fly Ball Candle Holder - Rebecca M. Ronesi

For the holiday season I paint glass “Dragonfly Balls” They’re ornaments that can be hung on a tree or keep around all year long. I have different themes every year. Besides loving to paint, it gives me the opportunity to play with sparkle…I love sparkle. This idea came from my own desire to collect unusual holiday ornaments from other artists and different parts of the world. – Rebecca M. Ronesi

How to Make Ice Cream Pizza

This is an easy to make recipe that adapts to any type of holiday or celebration. Kids of any age can get involved. Best of all, the final product is always a hit with both kids and adults. You won’t order ice cream cakes after you’ve made an Ice Cream Pizza!

Mary Lu Wason of Amethyst Lobster will present the recipe. She makes jewelry when she isn’t eating Ice Cream Pizza.


Pumpkin Biscotti

I’m Shannon Girouard-Fogl, an artist and baker from Fuquay NC. Getting most of my recipes from my Grandmother, I continue to bake and sell her fresh cookies today. I also have created and use many of my own original recipes. I can’t wait to show you a simple step by step recipe that will have you baking your own fresh Pumpkin biscotti for the holidays.


Puzzle-Piece Ornaments

Make a Christmas Tree or a Snowflake using a handful of pieces from old, incomplete puzzles. A great activity for families and utilizes materials that might otherwise be discarded!

Aimee Dingman is a full-time student, part-time artist; currently living smack in a desolate wasteland of abandoned industrial buildings.


Unique Christmas Ornaments – decoupage – difficulty: EASY

For over twenty years I have been making decoupage Christmas Ornaments that are unique and beautiful. With a 4″ close cell Styrofoam ball, Modge Podge, decorative tissues and/or napkins and a few other tools you too can make some amazing ornaments to grace your tree! This project is not difficult but it can be time consuming and addictive!

Harlan is an oil painter with close to 40 years experience who also makes rather exceptionally good needle felted sculptures. She has always dabbled extensively in craft projects, Christmas ornaments being but one of many!


Paper Beadmaking

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I am an avid beader from the northwoods of Wisconsin. Up here on the shores of Gitchee Gummi the winters are very long, and we do arts and crafts to keep ourselves sane. Making paper beads is one of those activities which can be shared by young and old. All that is needed is a few supplies that are laying around in just about every household.

You can create your own beads of paper for use in jewelry, or decorating your house for the holidays. I’ll furnish step by step instructions, complete with photographs, so that you can make your own beads of paper. It’s so simple your 5 year old can do it with you so it’s a great family activity!
