— The famous Depot Arts Center in Steamboat Springs is a flurry of activity in December with a Holiday Workshop on Saturday, and there’s still time to Christmas shop for fine art and crafts from some of the area’s top artists.

First, local artists are setting up craft stations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Depot and inviting young and old to come and make Christmas gifts for loved ones. The price is only $25.

“All the supplies and inspiration are provided,” said Sabrina Stewart, office manager for the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, which runs the Depot Arts Center on 13th Street.

Artists will help folks make everything from gingerbread houses to ornaments to jewelry. Those who plan to attend can pay at the door or online.

Anyone younger than 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

If you are looking for more sophisticated gifts created by local artists, the Gift Show will still be going on at the Depot as well.

The show features a few noted artists, some undiscovered artists and everything in between. The art includes paintings, pottery, jewelry, photography, glasswork, fiberwork and even Christmas cards. Prices range from $3 to $650 for various items.

There’s also time for artists to participate in the Winter Tracks art exhibit in January where participants are asked to embellish a ski, snowboard or snowshoes and submit it for the show. Applications are due Jan. 3.
