Creativity for Adults.

The eight week series could as well have been titled Creativity for the Non-Creative. The series of classes are designed to help adults to learn creativity techniques, including how to survive and participate in your children's "kit and craft stage" (a stage all kids go through at some point) and encourage innovation, imagination, and creativity that will last them and you a lifetime. Topics will vary from week to week. The classes cost $10.00 per session (cost includes supplies). We will post the full details, including location, on our Events & Classes page the first week of January. We are holding two sessions each week, one during the daytime (1-3 p.m.) and one in the evenings (7 to 9 p.m.) Their are no special requirements, just a desire to learn how to think more creatively. Space is somewhat limited, so call ahead (382-6431) to reserve your place.

Paper Crafts for Kids.

Paper crafts are a great way to introduce kids to modeling and to expand their understanding of creativity and creative problem solving. We are offering a series of unique paper-based craft classes for kids (ages 8 and up). The classes are being held on Saturday afternoons and vary between two and three hours. Check out our Events & Classes page for more details. Classes start on January 11, 2014. See the calendar for times and place.
