Tuesday Arts and Crafts:

Learn different styles and techniques for drawing, painting, and creating your own pictures and cards. Draw houses, people, and your pet and outdoor scenes. Be creative and work with your hands. Build with wood, metal, paper, and other materials.

The outcome would be to set up an online Art/Craft show and hopefully sell the art and crafts with the sales being returned to the artist.

Yoga

Wednesday Gentle Yoga:

September 14th – November 30th 10:30am – 11:30am

Program runs for 12 weeks at a cost of $100.

Thursday Gentle Yoga:

September 8th – November 24th   10:30am – 11:30am

Program runs for 12 weeks at a cost of $100.

These one-hour classes move at a slow pace for people new to yoga or for those simply interested in stretching and moving mindfully. Students will learn breathwork, terminology, and basic essential yoga poses, which include both standing and floor postures to create a foundation for their practice. Longer holds combined with focused breathwork unwind and relax the body and, with that, the mind follows and unwinds. This often results in having a more restful sleep.

Wednesday Pizza Night:

September 14th – November 30th  5:30pm – 7:30pm

Boston Pizza - 2836 Memorial Dr SE

Program runs for 12 weeks at a cost of $100.

You are responsible to pay for your meal and for the smaller appetites, you can order from the kid's menu.

Sign Language

Program runs for 12 weeks at a cost of $100.

This 12-week American Sign Language (ASL) course is intended for students who have little to no prior experience with ASL or who need some fundamental skills. Students pick up on the fundamentals of regular ASL communication while also learning about Deaf culture and Deaf Community topics. The main subjects covered are getting to know you, exchanging personal information, and talking about living arrangements. With an emphasis on fostering the ability to ask and respond to questions, grammar is introduced in context.
