The classes we offer require no experience (and of course, liquid inspiration will also be available!). Open your door to creativity and give it a shot! $40 includes instruction, all materials, a drink AND you'll go home with your very own masterpiece! Learn to add all the beauty of watercolor washes to your mixed media paintings in this colorful class. Local artist Kellie Day will take you through creating a lovely and colorful painting on canvas with watercolor washes, and then add all the fun of acrylic, collage, pastel and illustration to tie it together. You’ll come home with a sweet little painting of your own. No experience or talent necessary! Just show up with your smiles on.

An Invitation to Play With Energy with Michele Follis

Do you like to play with energy? Would like to learn?

This is an invitation to experience an energetic Body Process through the work of Access Consciousness®. Access Consciousness Body Processes are simply amazing. The one we will work with focuses on the planet and communion with all things. The earth is asking to be nurtured and so are our bodies. There is something truly beautiful and potent when we connect with our bodies and receive energies that are available. The vibration we choose to BE in the world does matter, perhaps now more than ever. What if by running this process we could offer to heal our bodies and the earth?

Living with Uncertainty: A poetry discussion series with Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer

Messy. Mysterious. Unruly. The world we live in is anything but easy to pin down—and in fact, that’s what poets have been writing about for centuries. In this four-week discussion class, we will read poets from across cultures and centuries who drew strength from, as Adrienne Rich says, “the great muscle of metaphor” to launch their poems and their understanding of the world into the vast realm of possibility. We’ll read poems that lead us deeper into paradox, poems that help us connect to the world around us, squirrely and unpredictable as it is.

Join us for this 4 week series starting Wednesday April 26 from 12-2 pm at Weehawken Ridgway. No materials needed but an open mind. Registration for the 4 week series is $130.
