A casual drawing lesson for kids. Each class will have a different theme (book, movie, TV show, etc), and kids can shout out which characters are their favorite and we’ll make sure we draw those! At the end, everyone gets to show off their artwork using their webcams! Kids will want to have a pencil with a good eraser for this, as well as extra paper.

Zoom online meeting
Wednesday, Dec. 2, 6 - 7 p.m.

Take a break mid-week and work on a community jigsaw puzzle. We’ll be using the website jigsawpuzzles.io to work on the same puzzle together as a group, plus you can relax and chat with folks over Zoom’s audio chat. It’s a safe way to socialize and decompress!

You'll need a computer or tablet that can load jigsawpuzzles.io in order to participate, as well as a smartphone or a computer with a microphone to use Zoom. This event will be focused on audio interaction, so video is unnecessary and webcams aren't needed.
