Classes for the young will be held on Saturdays in 6-week blocks.

Students will use the medium of puppet making to examine cross cultural creativity. The classes are scheduled for 90 minutes at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m,. and are limited to 10 students.

Classes begin on March 30.

Adults will have a choice of two classes: Beginning Watercolor and Tea with the Masters:

The Watercolor class will explore techniques, drawing, composition color theory and other basics of painting. Classes begin on Tuesday, April 2 and is limited to ten participants. No prior experience is needed. A list of supplies will be provided at the first session.

Tea with the Masters will take students on a smooth historical exploration of using discussion, visual activities and hands on experiences that will familiarize them with the Master Artists that have influenced art today.
