Interested in drawing and/or painting? Consider our new classes coming out in Spring 2017: The Making of Modern Christianity and our Bestsellers and Storytellers Writers Program

The Making of Modern Christianity traces the surprising origins of Christianity in America from the Reformation to the fire and brimstone preaching of the 19th century to the rise of contemporary Evangelicals.  From bold predictions of the end of the world to Hippy drug culture and contemporary megachurches, you will come to appreciate the uniquely American breed of Christian culture that has arisen.

Children's Picture Book Writing is the first Spring class offered in our writers series.
If you have ever  wanted to write a children's picture book? Join published author and teacher Cindy Neuschwander and learn about this writing genre. Five two-hour sessions cover all aspects of writing, editing and publishing your manuscript. Topics covered in this class include an overview of the picture book from the first ideas to published book, history of picture books, character, the mind of the child, narrative structures, story skeletons, illustrations, editing, submissions, and publishing contracts. We will read and study a number of picture books thoughout our five weeks together. We consider both fictional and factual story concepts. Whether you are a teacher, parent/grandparent, or someone who has a great kids' story to tell, this class is for you!
