New classes for fall!

I know, I know, you find it hard to believe me when I assure you that
autumn is actually on the horizon... but it is... not long now before
you'll be basking in luxurious under-100-degrees temps (and possibly
enjoying some of my new classes...)

*ART CLASS *ages 1-3 $135 Tuesdays 10-12 September 1st through October 6th

Inspired by the book Young at Art by Susan Stryker, this class is a
chance for toddlers to have early art experiences that are messy, fun,
and tactile. We explore one color per week through painting, drawing,
and salt dough sculpture, and throw in some water play, books, and
snacking to round it out. This is a low stress and truly fun environment
for toddlers to meet new friends and have a weekly art adventure!

*ART, SCIENCE,and COOKING *ages 2-4 $135 Wednesdays 10-12 September 9th through October 14th

For graduates from my other classes, this will be a fun smorgasbord of
activities for curious kids who love to bake, make, and create! All
new art projects, recipes, and truly wowing science experiments.....
sure to amuse even the most discerning of toddlers and preschoolers.

*WOODSHOP FOR CHILDREN , part 2 ages 3-7 $150 Thursday afternoons 4-6 September 3rd through October 8th (co-taught with Doerte Fimke of Austin Montessori Center)
More simple and satisfying woodworking projects for children who already
have some experience hammering and sawing. We'll be making a special
box, a knitting loom, and other handmade toys, games, and projects that
your child can really take pride in.

$150 Thursdays October 15th through November 19th
Learn to make a bristlebot, a burglar alarm, a rocket launcher and
more... take apart old electronics, learn, tinker, think, create!

*TINKERING CLASS ****for homeschoolers* ages 5-12 $150 10-12 Mondays
September 28th though November 9th (no class on Oct. 12th)

And a few classes for adults, too:
*THE ARTIST'S WAY: a spiritual path to higher creativity* $190 for 12 weeks Monday evenings 7-9 August 24th through November 9th
Join me for this 12 week course in discovering and recovering your creative self. Doing this course with a group is a surefire way to keep you on track as you work towards a more creative, fun, and fulfilling life! Share stories and experiences, work on writing projects and art projects together and separately, relax in a cozy environment with new friends.... and see where this wild ride takes you as you explode old limiting beliefs and puzzle your way out of patterns that have kept you stuck for years.
*BUILD YOUR OWN DOLLHOUSE* $150 5 weeks Thursdays September 10th through October 8th
Build the dollhouse of your dreams, for your kids or heck, just for yourself. Start with a basic design
and deck it out with all things tiny, or get your architect on and make a mini Dwell-magazine abode...install a real working light, doorbell, or even a ceiling fan...or just obsessively stock the refrigerator with every conceivable
kind of miniature food... whatever your fancy may be. This is your dream house, people, and this time Barbie's not invited.
