Arboretum Amble

Join us this Thursday, May 26, for Breathe and Stay Cool. All walks begin at the Hughes Education Center at 7 p.m. Our education coordinator, Nan Bonfils, will lead you to parts of the Arboretum you might not normally explore. All walks are open to all ages.

Paint acrylics

Learn basic color theory as well as painting from both life and photographs at an acrylics painting class offered at the Workspace at Iowa State. June 1 is the first class, which will meet every Wednesday for six weeks from 7-9 p.m. Techniques taught by Kyle Renell will include monochromatic painting, full color application and glazing. Painters of all levels are welcome. Cost is $70 with ISU; $80 for the public.

Show off your belly

On June 1, a walk-in belly dance will lead off the June Wednesday night folkloric dances offered at the Workspace on the Iowa State campus. Lisa Rich McKelvey (Shiara) will feature a different dance style each night with an introduction to the music, movements, costumes and props used for each of the dances from the Middle East and North Africa. Purchase a dance punch card and attend as often as your schedule allows. Punch cards are good for one year. They are $34 for ISU; $45 for the public.
