Anyone and everyone who homeschools/unschools is welcome to attend any of these functions. Attendance
at every activity is not required, just come when you can and have some fun. If you plan on coming, though, please email me for directions and so I can get a head count!! At this point I do not have a “meeting place”, but am willing to share my home for some activities.
First and third Monday of every month from 12 am - 2 pm.
We will have various art supplies: paints, markers, pencils, pastels, and different techniques to choose from.
This is an “art class” because we can learn different artistic methods from each other.
For more information, or to find out where we will be meeting please email me
We will have a planned craft for every craft class. The majority of supplies will be provided for you. If anything additional is needed it will be posted with the craft.
September 14th craft: Name sculptures using clay. To be painted after it has hardened, either in the oven or overnight
September 28th craft: Wooden picture frames
If you are interested in coming to the craft please email me for directions.
Every third Saturday of the month, the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum in Pueblo sponsors a Model Rocket Day. You will build a rocket and fire it off!!! This would be excellent for any budding astronauts or pilots out there!!
WHERE: at the Pueblo Chemical Depot located approximately 12 miles east of
Pueblo on Colorado Highway 96/US Highway 50 East.
Contact Jason Unwin at (719) 948-9219 for more information or to reserve a rocket and motors.
