As part of its ongoing Second Saturday activities, The Crossing Arts Alliance will host a youth art event, a featured artist meet and greet, and a felting workshop from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 10, in the lower level of the Franklin Arts Center in Brainerd.

Kids can create landscapes and cityscapes using paper and a variety of techniques. The class is geared toward kids ages 5-13, but any age (even adult "kids at heart") are welcome. Younger artists will require an adult helper.

A $3 per child/$5 per family materials donation is requested, but no child will be turned away due to need. No pre-registration is required, and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Handicap-accessible parking and access is available.

Linda Holliday, owner of Holliday Pottery and Impact Minnesota, will showcase her functional wares in The Crossing Arts Gift Shop in June. Holliday will be on hand to discuss her work from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 10. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.

There will be a needle-felted landscape workshop with Lisa Jordan from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, June 10. Students will learn to design a needle-felted landscape "painting" by layering colors, building texture and adding interesting elements to create their own unique piece. Using a specially barbed needle and fluffy wool, needle-felting is a fun and accessible art form.
