Mother's Day Celebration

Make May 7 a Mother’s Day Saturday your Mom will cherish forever. One Mom per family will be admitted FREE to the Mother’s Day Celebration at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts in Gloversville. Moms are invited to sit back and relax in our beautiful Grand Gallery, where they will be treated to a wonderful brunch and music. While the moms take a break, their children will make them something truly memorable in each of our craft stations, from special handmade jewelry to top secret Mother’s Day cards. Our teaching kitchen will also be open to boys and girls so they can create individualized Mother’s Day cupcakes. Join us Saturday, May 7, for the Mother’s Day Celebration at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts!
