One-Time Wonders

Stage and spotlight

Consider the “One-Hit Wonder.” Can you name one? An artist who never returned to the spotlight although their impact and influence carries on through a single contribution.

It is much the same with our “One-Time Wonder” classes. While we continue with virtual classes, these one-session classes offer a low-commitment opportunity to engage with other lifelong learners while developing new skills and exploring interests. They may meet only once, but these classes are designed to leave you with knowledge and experience that will last and last.
