??TAI CHI

Join us on Monday July 24, 2017 at 1:00 PM in the Community Room for Tai Chi for Beginners. Learn tai chi with instructor Kelley Brophy! Originally developed for self-defense, tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that’s now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions.

Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements. Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.

Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. Harvard Women’s Health Watch: The Health Benefits of Tai Ch

??ADULT PAINT NIGHT

Join us on Tuesday July 25, 2017 at 6:30 PM in the Community Room for a Georgia O’Keeffe Style Paint Night with Sandy Churchill.

Come join us for a fun and engaging paint night! Painters of all levels are welcome to learn to paint in the style of 20th century artist Georgia O’Keeffe.

All materials will be provided (including paints, brushes, watercolor canvas, etc.). Sandy Churchill teaches ???Paint with the Masters??? classes to budding artists, including enrichment classes, homeschool programs, and library classes.

While she has taught classes in the style of Van Gogh, Lichenstein, Klimt, Seurat, and Matisse, Monet remains a personal favorite!??

This is the second in a series of three classes designed to introduce adults to the styles of fine artists and foster hands-on creation of individual paintings inspired by the masters.??
