Class Schedule

July 13, 2020 UPDATE: We have received many questions regarding classes since the new announcement regarding COVID restrictions in Sonoma County.  We have used the guidelines applying to retail stores in opening our classes.  At this time we will continue our classes as it is our understanding that retail stores are still allowed to remain open.  We are still unable to offer drop-in classes at this time.   We appreciate your patience as we all work through this challenging time.  Please click the link for our Covid Protocols. Protocols for Class With COVID 19.pdf

There are classes throughout the week. For a complete listing of daily activities please download our full calendar in the news side bar. To register for a class session, click on the class you are interested in on the calendar below. Read descriptions of all of our most common classes on ourClass Description page.

Drop-In Classes - Canceled during COVID restrictions

Due to Covid19 we have suspended all drop in classes. There is no way to maintain a limited number of students with drop in classes. When this changes we will post that change here.  The information below will apply at that time.

Drop-in classes do not allow pre-registration so plan to pay when you arrive at class. Exact change is appreciated.
