Want to learn how to repair or build your own computer? This class introduces the major components of computer hardware and what they do. The instructor will lead a demonstration lab that provides hands-on experience with installing and uninstalling common pieces of hardware.

It’s hot outside, and even hotter inside as we draw this fun desert-inspired graphic. Artists will draw a stylized composition featuring cartoon-interpretations of a cactus, a coyote and the sun. We’ll also learn to use contrasting warm and cool colors to finish off our cheery Southwestern masterpiece.

Have you ever noticed how thoughts come and go like waves of an ocean or stream? We can’t stop the waves, but we can learn to ride them more easily! Have fun making an origami paper boat to remind you how a boat can ride the waves, and the mind can too!
