Killing Time in the Summer Doldrums

Oh, how I long for those fall class schedules to be released. They're like the school supply aisle at Target -- so full of possibility! I had a momentary thrill today when I visited the Indianapolis Art Center's site and accidentally read "full class schedule" as "fall class schedule." But, no, it is not even July. We will have to be patient.

In the meantime, it's not too late to sign up for late-summer classes at spots around town. The IUPUI Community Learning Network offers a number of classes that start in July, including fitness, art, and home and garden classes.

Upcoming workshops at the Indianapolis Art Center include silk painting, photography, goblet making, papermaking, jewelry design, painting, event planning, furniture refinishing and botanical illustration.

Kiss Z Cook has some mouth-watering cooking classes coming up in July, such as "Pies, Pies, Pies," "Cooking with Beer," "Belize Cuisine" and "Grindhouse Favorites."

And, of course, summer is a great time to take that historic ghost tour, visit the Holcomb Observatory or explore a museum you haven't seen since elementary school.

Meanwhile, I'll keep looking nostalgically at yellow pencils and gazing mournfully at outdated class schedules.
