Featured Classes
Introduction to Blockchain Technology
Blockchain is the underlying technology facilitating Bitcoin and several other cryptocurrencies today. Is it a passing fad, an evolutionary trend, or a truly revolutionary and disruptive technology phenomenon? This four-hour class answers this question and more, and perhaps most importantly, "exactly what is blockchain and why does it matter?"

Cult Classic Film Masterpieces II
Not "Pink Flamingos" or "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"! World cinema presents awesome cult films that transcend into greatness and leave you gasping: With 37 world wide awards and nominations, "The Crying Game" became the film that everyone was talking about in 1992, but no one was giving up its secrets. Robin Williams delivers a terrifying performance in "One Hour Photo" which has the spine-tingling elements of the best psychological thrillers. In David Cronenberg's "Dead Ringers," twin gynecologists take full advantage of the fact that nobody can tell them apart, until their rleationship begins to deteriorate over a woman. A hit at many international fim festivals "Unconditional Love" is an unconventional romance about teenage twins Owen and Kristen who both fall under the sway of a charismatic young loan shark who offers them money--on one condition. Set in Buenos Aires, "Apartment Zero" centers on a relationship between two emotionally crippled roommates played by Colin Firth and Hart Bochner. Award winning Felicity Huffman has a gender identity crisis in "Transamerica," a film that Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal says "will leave you in a state of euphoria." No tuition discounts or waivers. 5 sessions @ 3 hrs each.
Essential Skills for Beginning Knitters
Knit one, purl two; yes, it's that easy to begin crafting your own creations. As we take you from yarn selection and pattern reading to casting on, you'll be knitting, purling, doing increases and decreases, changing gauge, and then binding off so you will be ready to knit basic items using a pattern. Social knitting and the use of on-line support sites will be addressed. 4 sessions @ 3 hrs each.
