  • Build a Modern Adirondack Chair and Table

    Adirondack chairs are the perfect Vermont styled chair for your porch, fire pit or lawn. There are many different styles of Adirondack chairs, but in this course you will be making an (unfinished) modern and simplified version with a matching table! You may choose to leave your chair unfinished or you can paint, stain, or seal the wood at home. Methods and recommended products will be discussed. Over the course of 4 classes, students will cut all the necessary wood components, assemble and sand their chair and table. Chairs are constructed from 2X4 and 2x10 boards and held together with construction grade screws. These chairs are heavy and durable! (If a student is not comfortable or not permitted to use the saw, I can pre-cut all their components in lieu of them attending the first class). Minimum age for this class is 16+ Your chair and and table will be stored at CVU until completion. You will be responsible for bringing the chair and table home after the forth class. Please bring PPE equipment such as safety goggles and gloves. Dust masks are optional. Bring a measuring tape and wear closed toed shoes, hat and tie hair back.
  • Drawing: Portraits

    Drawing faces is hard…so let’s practice together! Over this six-week course, we will break down all the parts that make up a face in order to better understand them. We will then put them all together to successfully draw faces! Join me for this fun and engaging course and walk away with some wonderful drawings, created by you! All materials are included in class fee. No experience required. For students aged 13 and older; younger students should register with an adult who is also joining the class. If you took Lorien's "Drawing: Beginner/Intermediate" class, you can save $5 during registration and bring your pencil set to this class. This class will meet inside CVU.
