IT'S COMING..............TONIGHT at 7:30PM

Set your smart phone alarms or grab an old school #2 pencil and the back of a receipt.   You won't want to miss this one.   826CHI Free November/December Workshops are open for registration tonight at 7:30.  And they fill fast.

You can check out the fabulously creative descriptions now, and get those typing fingers limbered up for tonight.   Workshops are for kids ages 6-18 and are broken down by age groups.   See what's new here!

ChiIL Teacher:  If you happen to have a 2nd or 3rd grader, I'm teaching two 826CHI workshops and would love to see you there.   In November, join ChiIL Mama for The Lost Sock, and in December, you can sign up for The Sun Box.

The Lost Sock
One Session: Friday, November 13th
Time: 4–5:30PM
Taught by Bonnie Kenaz-Mara
Limited to 12 students in grades 2–3
Is your dryer a portal to another dimension? In our house, every load of laundry comes out with missing socks. Where do all those mismatched socks go? Today, the ones who got left behind can go to a fun, funky writing workshop and star in their own stories. With a little help from kids in the 2nd and 3rd grades, these socks will become colorful new bookmarks to take home. They will also spark a whole collection of lost sock letters, documenting the adventures of their missing twins. Bring in your mismatched socks and we’ll have a rockin’, sockin’ good time.
Will open for registration on 10/27 at 7:30pm.

The Sun Box: Winter Solstice Myths and Traditions from Ancient Times to the Present
One Session: Friday, December 11th
Time: 4–5:30PM
Taught by Bonnie Kenaz-Mara
Limited to 12 students in grades 2–3
Winter Solstice is coming, Monday, December 21st, in the northern hemisphere, this year. People have been fascinated with the sun for centuries, and have made up lots of interesting Solstice stories, to explain and celebrate the shortest day of the year. In The Sun Box Workshop, we’ll explore these myths and traditions with two yellow sun boxes, full of stories and props, for the kids to pick out.
Will open for registration on 10/27 at 7:30pm.
