CHIKAPIG aka Farmer’s Chess
There’s a new board game in town. It’s called CHIKCAPIG, and as the name suggests it has a farm theme. The first player to get their 6 Chickapigs off the board wins. You must coordinate your Chickapigs, Hay Bales, and the Cow to help your Chickapigs escape through their goal. At the same time, you play defense against your opponents. This chess-like strategy game is highly recommended by Grammy winner Dave Matthews, who takes the game on all his tours. It is a game for all ages, so kids, bring your parents and grandparents. Parent and grandparents get those kids to put down their electronic devices and come play a live, interactive game with you. Snacks provided.
Date: Mondays, September 24—October 15---November 19---December 3
Location: CTEC 133
BEGINNING DRAWING ACADEMY
Instructor: Forrest Vanier
This 6-week studio art class is open to anyone aged 15 and older. Drawing is one of the oldest forms of visual expression, used long before any written language. It is the foundation of all artistic practice. Forrest believes that an individual is never too old to learn the Art of Drawing and that anyone who can hold a pencil can learn the fundamentals of Drawing. Forrest has chosen two basic and readily available tools for this class: paper and pencil. And those items will be supplied as a part of your class fees. Sign up and get ready to allow your inner artist out for a breath of air.
Date: Wednesdays, September 26 to October 31
Location: CTEC 111
BASIC SELF-DEFENSE FOR WOMEN
Instructor: Beth Bryan, EWC Resource Officer
Women, Ladies, Girls: take responsibility for preparing yourself in the event of a crime---the more prepared you are, the less likely you will need to defend yourself. This class is designed to increase your personal level of awareness, thus reducing the chance you will find yourself in a compromising situation, whether it be at home, in a parking lot, or out jogging. Basic self-defense techniques will be demonstrated with opportunity for practice. Even if you’ve taken this class before, it is always to your benefit to refresh or practice your self-defense skills. Officer Bryan includes the use of pressure points as a self-defense technique in her curriculum. This is a great mom & daughter class.

Cost: $20 per session
