The classic complicated German board game in action

MODERN BOARD GAME NIGHT
Facilitated by Karl Davis
FIRST TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH- ONGOING
5:30-8:00 PM
FREE!

As opposed to traditional American-style games – like Risk – modern Euro-style games are won on strategy, not conflict. They feature little to no luck, and economic, not military themes. In addition, all players stay in the game until it’s over. The artistic style of the game is also important. Euro-style games also feature beautiful, intricate images, wooden player pieces AND 3D aspects. Whether you’re a total novice, or well versed in these style games, you can join in. Bring your own or play one from Karls collection.

Class size is limited, and good fitting masks will be required to lower risk for students, instructors and staff. Because it’s difficult to distance with this activity, we are asking that participants bring proof of vaccination to their first session.

DRAWING TO SEE
with Shari Dallas
WEDNESDAYS, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
New dates soon

A four-part workshop open to all ability levels, where an affinity for drawing is the
only requirement. Drawing is a contemplative and centering activity. We will see what we can pull out of ourselves, using a variety of tools and materials, to capture in line and color objects from the world around us. We will draw to SEE, and, in the process, strengthen our sense of who we are as artists.
Just bring yourself. Tools and materials will be provided.

$95 MEMBERS / $100 NON-MEMBERS + $15 MATERIALS FEE
