Baylor University's Student Union Board will host a holiday arts fair Dec. 4-5 in the Bill Daniel Student Center. Vendors will sell a variety of creations at booths, including jewelry, ornaments, handmade paper, artistic photos and other unique gifts for the holiday season.

The event, which is part of Baylor's "Christmas on Fifth Street" celebration, will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

Free art activities will be featured both days during the lunch and dinner hours on the first floor of the student center. Students can create scrapbooks pages during a workshop, led by Creative Memories from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday. Students should bring three to five pictures for one free scrapbook page. Scrapbook supplies also will be available for purchase. Also on Wednesday, students can have their picture drawn by a caricature artist from 4 to 7 p.m.

On Thursday, students can create wax hands, a perfect decoration for an apartment or dorm, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Baylor art professor, Paul McCoy, and his wife, Ann, have been a part of the art fair for more than 20 years.

"I like the intimacy of it. It is a pleasant experience and we enjoy being there to interact with students, faculty and staff, to connect with people and meet new people," McCoy said.
