Coming up this week....

February is almost here! That means that this weekend is the monthly First Saturdays event at the Brooklyn Museum. This month's theme is 'Discover Love in the Lunar New Year'. Along with music, poetry, and dance performances, there is also a make-your-own Chinese chop art project.

A four-week pattern-making class for sewers starts Friday 2/1 at Etsy Labs in Brooklyn. Learn to sew without using commercial patterns! Looks like there's still space available in the class.

Coming up soon... a four-week watercolor painting class at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden adult education program starting 2/13. The class will focus on painting subjects at the garden, such as bird's nests and greenhouse flowers.
