Little Chick Classes: Fall Session @ Tracy Aviary

Little Chick Classes: Fall Session @ Tracy Aviary

Bring your little ones to stretch their wings with our educators and birds in Tracy Aviary’s Preschool and Kindergarten classes.

Our classes are offered every other week over a three-month period. Knowing how busy Moms’ and Dads’ schedules can be, each 2-3 and 3-4 class will run as a weekday session, and a Saturday session. 4-5 classes are held on alternating Saturdays, so that you and your busy kindergartener can attend outside of school.

Classes feature a special bird visitor, a fun craft or activity, a snack, a sing-along song, and an engaging story connecting with our age-appropriate themes.

All classes are designed for parents to attend and participate with their child.

Register now! Space for each class is limited to 12!

For more information, a class schedule and to sign up, please visit http://www.tracyaviary.org/pre-k-classes/

Screen Printing @ Copper Palate Press

Made famous by Andy Warhol in the ’60s, screen printing’s distinctive renderings have been transposed onto posters and tee shirts for years. In this class, you’ll learn the step-by-step process of screen printing through both demonstration and hands-on experience. During the first class, you’ll be shown the various ways of creating an image: computer-based graphics, drawing by hand, or cutting an image or images from magazines. Next, you’ll be shown the ins and outs of using screen printing equipment, gain experience printing a simple image to paper, learn to print a two-color image to paper, and finally, print a one-color image to a wearable tee-shirt. Please bring an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sketchbook, drawing pencils, and an eraser to class. Special fee includes screenprinting screen and a tee shirt to take home at the end of class. Class is limited to 10 people; no artistic experience is necessary. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.

Granary Row @ Granary Row
Nov 15 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Granary Row @ Granary Row

Granary Row is a pop-up market and festival space. It’s a community space, as well as a breeding ground for local businesses.

Granary Row is the very sort of “big idea” that it hopes to foster — a bold urban venture aimed at inspiring and fostering the entrepreneurial ambitions of Salt Lake City’s creative class. At its core, it’s an experiment in ware-steading the Granary with microventures that will make the District their home — in turn sustaining the neighborhood as a place where makers live, work, and play!
