Your Ah Haa Moment: Getting Crafty For The Holidays

[click "Play" to hear Sally Davis speak about her Ah Haa class]

Art_heart Telluride is no different. As contact sports go, there is nothing quite like the four weeks before Christmas. The games begin tomorrow night, December 2, Noel Nite, when stores in town officially open for the winter season. Not looking forward to the crowds (or the debt)? You can say "no" to consumerism and "yes" to creative and original presents from your imagination and heart. A 2005 study by the Center for a New American Dream showed that almost 80 percent of Americans wished the holidays were "less materialistic." And that was then, this is now. For meaningful alternatives to ready, aim, shop, sign up for classes at the Ah Haa School for the Arts.
