Should the kids have all the fun?
We don’t think so and neither does local start-up Nerdies/Arties. They’ve added some classes for the grown-ups, too! Woo-hoo!
In our 5 Minutes with a Mom interviews, we often ask local mamas what they would like to learn if they went back to school. Everyone has something they would love to learn more about. The Nerdies (and Arties) classes give adults a way to dip their toe back into the classroom.
It’s always fun to learn something new and it’s good to give your brain a workout.
These adult classes are on tap right now at Nerdies/Arties:
Turn trash to treasure with Trashley’s Junk. DIY, mamas! Bring in an old piece furniture — or something else that needs a new paint job — and turn it into something incredible. Ashley Henry will fully assist you in a “Junk Paint Makeover”. Click here to read more.
