The four lower Snake River dams were controversial even before they were completed in 1975. Since then, tens of millions of dollars have been spent maintaining the dams and improving fish passage. Although the advantages of such dams and reservoirs include the generation of electricity, irrigation, free transportation by tugs & barges, and recreation opportunities, the dams provide little or no flood control - and removing them would increase fish survival and provide alternative recreation potential. We will meet with experts from several related fields, hear their varied perspectives, and engage in questions and discussion.
Certain quick breads and flatbreads lend themselves well to baking without wheat protein (gluten). This hands-on, two-night class will cover the basics of baking without gluten, making muffins, cookies, granola, and pizza dough from scratch. If you or a member of your family is gluten intolerant, or you would like to remove wheat from your diet and still enjoy baked goods, then this is the perfect class for you!
This class is for those with limited drawing experience who want to gain studio skills, vocabulary, and an appreciation of art and artists. We will explore techniques of drawing with a variety of media such as pencil, charcoal, felt-tip pen and oil pastels, as well as learn new skills through lectures, demonstrations, handouts, and videos. We will complete drawings each week during class and keep a sketchbook for work outside the classroom.
Eight weeks is all it takes to discover what makes watercolor such an amazing medium! A variety of techniques will be introduced to provide students with the ability to create the luminous, transparent glow that only watercolors can provide. We will complete three projects. No experience necessary.
This class is intended for those with some watercolor experience who want to continue learning and growing as an artist. We'll complete three translucent watercolor paintings from a range of wildlife, floral, or landscape scenes. Painting demonstrations and videos, artwork sharing, and discussion will all be a part of this experience.
