Somerville Skillshare is a day of free classes, taught and organized by local residents, taking place at the Center for Arts at the Armory on Sunday, March 2nd from 12-6pm.
Inspired by Skillshares that have occurred in other cities such as Brooklyn and Seattle, the first Somerville Skillshare will offer nearly 40 free classes from 40 different teachers in seven unique classroom spaces (performance hall, two conference rooms, yoga and dance studios, cafe, and mezzanine.) Attendees are encouraged to drop in and out during the day and take as many classes as they would like. All ages are welcome to attend.
The organizers of this event are local residents who value the diversity of this city and the creative, unique skills that Somervillians (and their neighbors) have to offer. They also seek to empower local residents–artists, artisans, professionals and hobbyists–by creating a highly visible platform that allows residents to showcase their unique talents to a broad community of learners.
Classes offered include Salsa Dancing, Parkour, Basic Bicycle Maintenance, Digital DJing, Creative Writing, Imaginary Map Making, Urban Beekeeping, CPR and First Aid, Bookbinding, Fermenting & Canning, and many more. Classes are all taught by residents of Somerville and the surrounding communities. Visit www.somervilleskillshare.org for the full class listing.
Join us on March 2nd to learn new skills, jump-start new hobbies, and meet other people with similar interests, all in a fun and informal setting.
