June: Gateway to Summer Classes

I don’t think there is a busier and more anticipated month than June! Graduations; block parties; barbecues; and weekends at the cottage. Not to mention all the festivals and special events that abound! And, of course, we are getting ready for summer vacations.

So what’s a person to do when they want to get away from it all? How about:
1. Coming out for a class for something new! Once learned, many techniques are perfectly portable to take to the cottage.
2. Treat your visitors to a class. Bringing a summer guest to a class with you will give you both a chance to chill and learn. A great way to re-charge your batteries before heading on to the next activity!
3. Travelling to Toronto on vacation? Include a class as part of your itinerary! By the way, a class with visiting instructor Robyn Cornelius would be a destination activity par excellence!
4. No cottage or immediate travel plans? Then a stay-cation activity is for you! Consider a class – or two – as special activities just for you!
