November at Make-It

As you know, we strive to always add new offerings to our schedule. Starting November 4th, we will offer a new session, "Make It Together," led by our host extraordinaire, Sheldon Smith. Each week will feature a hands-on activity to entertain kids of all ages and adults alike. Topics will range from drawing, to painting, to sewing, to crafts. Please note Sheldon's Thursday evening class from 6- 9pm is no longer on the schedule.
