BRAINERD — The Crossing Arts Alliance will distribute creativity kits from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 10, on tables inside the Crossing Arts building, 711 Laurel St., downtown Brainerd.

Kits include two art projects and supplies and are given out on the second Saturday of each month. This month, create two different kinds of ornaments: one using folded paper and one using air dry clay.

The kits provide arts education in a bag and are geared towards children ages 5-13, but all ages may enjoy them. The kits are free to the public and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

This month's kits are brought to you by Crossing Arts members and supporters and sponsored by the Brainerd Snodeos and the Lincoln Area Business Association.

For more information, contact the nonprofit art center at 218-833-0416 or info@crossingarts.org .

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
