Arts & Crafts
Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to register for fall classes!

Whether needles, brushes, pencils, or a variety of implements are in your toolkit, SAS has an arts & crafts course to help you hone your skills in a social, welcoming atmosphere. With strict enrollment caps to ensure you receive individualized attention, many of our classes do fill quickly. Please add your name to the wait list if you are interested as we do open additional sections whenever possible.

To meet demand, we have just added a Wednesday morning Knitting for All Levels (11541) class with Melissa Shinsato, in addition to her Tuesday evening and Thursday morning classes. Starting on September 14, 2022, this new section is open for registration.

September Watercolor Painting courses with Hope Friedland and Anne Johann are full but space is still available in a Mixed Media class (11488) with new instructor Satish Joshi that begins Friday, September 16, 2022 (watercolor, pastels, collage, decoupage, acrylic paints, and more) as well as several painting classes that start in early October. Katie Goldberg's Painting with Collage (11441) begins on Monday, October 3, 2022, and Christian Kunze's Watercolor Painting for Beginners and Beyond (11484) begins on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.
Kunze also leads an in-person Deep Dive into Drawing class (11476) starting on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, with spots still available. New instructor Jessica Lou, an experienced florist and art teacher, will introduce students to Drawing Flowers with Watercolor Pencils (11531) on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. Anne Johann's drawing class, Drawing: An Invaluable Skill and a Fascinating Medium (11399), is online and begins on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.

Late in October, Robin Ingram will lead an evening two-session class for students to Learn to Make a Wall Basket (11483). Participants will leave with a finished product that is great for storing magazines or other papers.

Catalog Additions and Scheduling Changes
As indicated above, a new Wednesday section of Knitting for All Levels (11541) will begin on September 14, 2022.

A new section of Ring Your Bell! (11542) has been added to the Friday schedule and meets immediately before the other class, starting September 30, 2022. The new 10:30 am class (11542) is for experienced players and the 11:30 am class (11450) will now be for beginners.
In case you missed last week's announcement, three new weekend walking tours have just been added to the catalog and are immediately open for registration. Historic Irvington and Tarrytown (11539) ventures along the Old Croton Aqueduct to take in some of Westchester's most spectacular views and the grounds of famous mansions on Sunday, September 18, 2022. The following month, explore the rich history of the Village center with its Tudor-inspired architecture on Sunday, October 2, 2022, in Development of Downtown Scarsdale (11538).
