Come create your own Jason mask. Jason’s character is synonymous with the hockey mask worn in the many versions of the movie, Friday the 13th. Come to the Art Co-Op every Saturday from 10 a.m. – noon in September and through October 28, to create your own mask for $13. Design your own version that have been sanded, primed and are ready for embellishment with prepared paints and other décor under the helpful guidance of the staff or, if you prefer, you may purchase a mask to work on at home. Details announcing the “winning” mask can be found at the Art Co-Op at 756 Baldwin Avenue, Suite B. For more details call 850-419-3007.
