Culinary Third Thursday themes vary each session, but happen every month at our Little Chute location. Generally, local chef walks us through how to prepare a few dishes, allowing time for questions throughout, while giving tricks and pointers about preparing various foods.  After the demos, class ends with tasting and socializing. You will bring home a few recipes, but also the confidence and knowledge for other similar pairings and your own future culinary exploits. Third Thursdays typically do not require registration or fees, but always check back once the topic has been announced to be sure.  This monthly program is geared towards adults (or possibly high school aged if they are interested in culinary arts).   We welcome attendees as kitchen space allows.

Discover new artistic possibility when you combine collage and multimedia with monoprinting techniques. First we will layer colors, patterns, and textures on a piece of artistic paper. Then we will integrate monoprint and collage techniques using masks and stencils to build images directly onto paper. The limitations between painting, monoprinting, and collage disappear as you gain a fluidity of process and new creative expression.
