Join us weekly on Tuesdays as our kids' horticulture program covers more diverse topics and expands to other areas of the Gardens.
Learn the fundamentals of woodworking equipment while creating a tool carrier. Leave class with knowledge of proper machinery use, and, most importantly, woodshop safety. Students may purchase the toolbox for $6 after class or we will use them for our Art Mart fundraiser. The orientation is required in order to use the woodshop on your own.
Get your hands dirty and make beautiful things! Start with centering clay and pulling cylinders, the building blocks to throwing on the wheel. Move on to forming bowls, mugs, vases and plates, and learn handle-pulling, glazing and finishing techniques. Open to beginners as well as those with experience who would like to improve their skills.
Work with star-shaped flowers and striped greens for a vase arrangement that's' sure to pop.
Alumni of the ISU Honors Comedy College course will perform in a show headlined by comedian and magician Tom Burgoon. Gavin Jerome, instructor of the 2-credit Honors seminar on the art and science of standup comedy, will host the event. Comedy college alumni Tyler Carlson, Michelle Parkison, Matt Jacobson and Jamie Steyer will open the show.
