    Painting loose with acrylics is a style of painting that focuses on creating expressive and free-flowing artwork. It involves using acrylic paints, which are water-based and dry quickly, allowing artists to work in a spontaneous and intuitive manner. In this class, you will explore different brushwork techniques, such as using broad strokes, cross hatching and splattering. These techniques will help you create dynamic and energetic compositions. The class will also cover color mixing and blending techniques. Additionally, you will experiment with various tools and materials to create texture and interest in your artwork. This may include using palette knives, sponges, or even unconventional objects to apply paint to the canvas. Throughout the class, you will have the opportunity to experiment, take risks, and embrace the freedom of painting loosely with acrylics and have a lot of fun!

    From the day she watched her kindergarten teacher drop dead during a dramatic telling of Peter Rabbit, Clover Brooks has felt a stronger connection with the dying than she has with the living. After the beloved grandfather who raised her dies alone while she is traveling, Clover becomes a death doula in New York City, dedicating her life to ushering people peacefully through their end-of-life process. Clover spends so much time with the dying that she has no life of her own, until the final wishes of a feisty old woman send Clover on a trip across the country to uncover a forgotten love story — and perhaps, her own happy ending. As she finds herself struggling to navigate the uncharted roads of romance and friendship, Clover is forced to examine what she really wants, and whether she’ll have the courage to go after it.

    Probing, clever, and hopeful, The Collected Regrets of Clover is perfect for readers of The Midnight Library and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine as it turns the normally taboo subject of death into a reason to celebrate life.

    Painting loose with acrylics is a style of painting that focuses on creating expressive and free-flowing artwork. It involves using acrylic paints, which are water-based and dry quickly, allowing artists to work in a spontaneous and intuitive manner. In this class, you will explore different brushwork techniques, such as using broad strokes, cross hatching and splattering. These techniques will help you create dynamic and energetic compositions. The class will also cover color mixing and blending techniques. Additionally, you will experiment with various tools and materials to create texture and interest in your artwork. This may include using palette knives, sponges, or even unconventional objects to apply paint to the canvas. Throughout the class, you will have the opportunity to experiment, take risks, and embrace the freedom of painting loosely with acrylics and have a lot of fun!

    All women are invited to these discussions to share observations, enthusiasm, insights and the pure enjoyment of reading.

    A historical thriller by the Pulitzer and National Book Award-winning author that tells the riveting story of the Klan's rise to power in the 1920s, the cunning con man who drove that rise, and the woman who stopped them.

    The Roaring Twenties — the Jazz Age — has been characterized as a time of Gatsby frivolity. But it was also the height of the uniquely American hate group, the Ku Klux Klan. Their domain was not the old Confederacy, but the Heartland and the West. They hated Blacks, Jews, Catholics and immigrants in equal measure, and took radical steps to keep these people from the American promise. And the man who set in motion their takeover of great swaths of America was a charismatic charlatan named D.C. Stephenson. Stephenson was a magnetic presence whose life story changed with every telling. Within two years of his arrival in Indiana, he’d become the Grand Dragon of the state and the architect of the strategy that brought the group out of the shadows – their message endorsed from the pulpits of local churches, spread at family picnics and town celebrations. Judges, prosecutors, ministers, governors and senators across the country all proudly proclaimed their membership. But at the peak of his influence, it was a seemingly powerless woman – Madge Oberholtzer – who would reveal his secret cruelties, and whose deathbed testimony finally brought the Klan to their knees.

    A FEVER IN THE HEARTLAND marries a propulsive drama to a powerful and page-turning reckoning with one of the darkest threads in American history.

    Gone are the days when women couldn't get a bank account or credit card in their own name, but it's been a long road to legal equality--and social/cultural equality is still out of reach for some women. This talk will trace some of the threads of women's legal rights in the context of changing gender roles in US society over the course of several hundred years.

    We are all on a journey to well-being in some way, whether it involves health and wellness, emotional stability, or balancing life. We may be facing challenges that, at times, feel insurmountable. This series is meant to be a journey of empowerment, perhaps at a time when you feel powerless. Our focus will begin with the mind, body, spirit connection and progress to developing a better relationship with our own unique, individual bodies and intuition, so they can guide us to live our best lives.

    You are invited to come on a journey of self-discovery, to make a commitment to yourself, and to really love the one you are with–YOU!
