OLD FAMILY PHOTOS IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Working on your old family photo prints and slides is a perfect Cabin Fever project! This two-hour seminar covers your options for scanning photo prints and slides into digital photo files - whether you have a computer or not - for a multitude of uses and sharing. Topics include creating a workflow, how to scan, how to get and stay organized, and how to back-up your pictures onto other storage devices.


CUTTING THE CORD- CONTROLLING CABLE & INTERNET COSTS
Fees for cable television, home internet, smartphones, and streaming services quickly add up to hundreds of dollars. This seminar reviews your options to cut costs and still watch television programs and have internet access on all devices.


GETTING CONTROL: ADVANCED DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
You purchased an interchangeable lens (DSLR) or advanced point-and-shoot camera, but you cannot make the camera do what you need for portraits, sports, kids, nature, and other types of photos. Bring your camera to this “hands-on” workshop to “get out of automatic” and learn how to use your camera’s Exposure Modes and other functions for a variety of special situations outdoors, indoors, and with flash. Participants must bring their camera to class.


YOU HAVE PICTURES IN YOUR CAMERA .. NOW WHAT?
We have hundreds - if not thousands - of pictures in our cameras, smartphones and computers. Now what ..? This two hour seminar teaches the techniques to save pictures from cameras and smart phones to your computer, to external devices, and to "the Cloud." Class covers how to organize your pictures, viewing pictures on any device, printing options, and how to archive your pictures for the decades to come.

DELICIOUS HAND PIES
February is Great American Pie Month and who doesn’t love pies?!? But, while we all love to eat pie, we don’t all love to make them.

No need to crimp or fuss, pie dough is easier to handle in small pieces, and she’ll even show you how to use store bought puff pastry and phyllo! Enjoy sampling… Strawberry-rhubarb Hand Pies with Puff Pastry; Individual Finnish Pasties with Homemade Crust; and Spinach and Artichoke Hand Pies with Phyllo


GERMAN HOME COOKING - repeated from Fall 2019
During the middle and late 19th century, Wisconsin and the Milwaukee area became the final destination of many German immigrants fleeing the Revolution of 1848. In Wisconsin they found the inexpensive land and the freedoms they sought. The German heritage and influence in the Milwaukee area is widespread and none is more prominent than the German culinary influence at places like Mader’s, Karl Ratzsch, Usinger’s™, and others. Tonight, Staci will prepare a terrific menu with this German heritage in mind. You can sample all of these foods and take home the recipes to prepare for your family…Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing; Jaeger-Style Pork Schnitzel with German Potato Dumplings; and Versunken Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake).


SIMPLE SEAFOOD
We have received lots of requests for seafood and fish "how to" classes so Staci has combined a bit to bring you a fantastic menu! You'll be sampling...Fruite de Mar (shrimp, scallops & mussels) with Tomato-Vodka Sauce served with Basil Risotto; and Wild Blueberry Slab Pie for Dessert.


CORDON BLEU: A CULINARY CLASSIC
National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day is annually observed on April 4th. This day is all about a special dish combining chicken, ham, and cheese. The French term Cordon Bleu is translated as “Blue Ribbon.” The earliest recipe known was in a March 1964 printing of the Cincinnati Enquirer by the Cincinnati Gourmet Stanley Demos. Despite some misconceptions, Chicken Cordon Bleu is an American dish. This dish is a “take” on the popular Veal Cordon Bleu. Tonight, you will sample Staci’s version of this classic along with side dishes fit to go along with this winner!
Enjoy sampling...Chicken Cordon Bleu with Dijon Cream Sauce; Duchess Potatoes; and Asparagus with Classic Hollandaise Sauce.


STEAK
May is National Beef Month so we are going to prepare one of the most popular cuts of steak...sirloin! We will pair it with a few sides and get you ready for summer grilling season. You will sample...Classic Wedge Salad with Bleu Cheese Dressing; Coffee-rubbed Sirloin Steak; Homemade Fries with Chipotle Ketchup; and Raspberry Tart.

WATERCOLOR
Ever considered exploring traditional Watercolor media but were not sure how to get started or if it is even for you? Haven’t touched watercolor in 10 years or just need a refresher? This class is for you!

The first evening you will learn and practice techniques of watercolor painting (darkest tone, lightest tone, even wash, wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, fade, blend, shade, leaving white) and begin to understand how to apply it to finished pieces. Then you will spend the next two classes applying them to a finished painting. This introductory class can open and expand your artistic knowledge and hopefully inform and inspire you to want to learn more! All supplies included.

CALLIGRAPHY
Learn a “new style” basic calligraphy alphabet, the “Italic Script”. You will also learn this style with a different style of calligraphy pen, known as a “brush tip” pen! Create a clean, flourished look that can be used to address an envelope, write on certificates, decoratively use on cards or scrapbook pages, or enhance memorable poems for friends.

“EXERCISES AND TECHNIQUES” - PERSPECTIVE WITHOUT PAIN
Drawing is painting, painting is drawing! Imagine “perspective without pain”….just simple instruction and hands-on exercises to teach you how to create a sense of depth in your drawings and paintings.

Whether a beginner or seasoned artist, this class is open to anyone wanting to practice their artistic skills. Working with “still life” to hone your observational skills, you will be able to choose from a variety of media (such as pencil, pen, charcoal, chalk pastels, watercolor, or colored pencil). Pick up helpful tips for making your art sessions pleasurable and productive.

“A BLANK CANVAS…A STROKE OF GENIUS” - ACRYLIC PAINTING FOR THE BEGINNER
Many people aspire to learn how to paint, but few know where to begin. Maybe you used to paint, but haven’t had the time to get back into it? Either way, you’ve picked the right class to develop your creative artistic spirit with acrylic painting!

Acrylics are water based, very fast drying, easy to use and very forgiving. Learn how to map out your composition and layer, match colors, blend on a wet or dry surface to create fades and gradients, and learn how to get smooth intricate detail. What a great opportunity for residents with similar interests to gather in this “hands-on” art class while uncorking your inner artist and creating something of your own. Best part is… everything you need to create your own work of art is included for your use in class (canvas, pallet, water-based acrylic paint, and brushes), and you get to take your painting home at the end of the 3-part session!

If you aspire to learn basic techniques to acrylic painting, or enhance what you already know, consider joining Jodi’s exciting, enlightening instruction as she coaches you to creative success!
