Events Wed Jun 25 2014
Its officially summer which is the perfect time to get out of the house and check out your neighborhood. That's the idea behind Learnapalooza, a neighborhood festival that partners organizations and community members together to bring free classes to you!
This weekend, Saturday June 28th, Learnapalooza comes to Wicker Park bringing with it dozens of opportunities for learning a new skill. Classes range from dancing, cooking, self defense, and even bee keeping. For our literary friends, there are some great free workshops we wanted to share with you.
At Chicago Publishers Resource Center, Learnapalooza staff member Caro Griffin will lead a book binding workshop, poet Sid Yiddish will lead a haiku writing session, and zinester Eric Bartholomew will lead an interactive writing workshop that uses items from his traveling Junk Drawer.
Register for classes today before they fill up. Then mark your calendar for 2 more Learnapalooza neighborhood events in Lakeview on July, 19 and Logan Square on August, 16.
All events are free, yet donations do help plan for future festivals.
