Less is more: clearing your mind by clearing your space
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

In this presentation Stephanie Baird, LMHC, will discuss her 8 month long process of using the KonMari method of decluttering, as outlined in the bestselling book, Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo, to clear her home of items that no longer "spark joy." 

Not only did she remove around 60 trash bags of items, but she was able to sell a vast amount of these items on eBay, Facebook, Craigslist, and to local clothing, book, cd, and comic stores, making over $2500. What she did not sell she had picked up for donation or  trash/recycling. Since doing this process, she has marveled at how much her consumption has decreased as a result of becoming much more discriminating. Every object remaining has a purpose and place, and is pleasing to own. 

During this presentation she will outline the KonMari steps, discuss and provide resources on how to responsibly dispose of your items, and discuss the benefits of clearing your space to clear your mind.

Art After School
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Do you want to be a creator? A maker? An artist?

Art After School is a six-week art program for 4th and 5th graders. Using techniques learned while studying at Bennington College, artist and educator Ryan Jobb will teach kids to create artworks using a variety of mediums. Projects, such as drawing from sound, drawing with rubbings, creating an alternate artist identity, and more, emphasize the importance of creation, imagination, and creativity over the need to create a finished product.
