1. Game Night Ready: Miniature Painting

Adam Brennan, October 28th @ 3:00pm.

Are you a fan of table-top games? Board games? Do you want to paint your miniatures but are unsure how to get started? Have you watched YouTube video after YouTube video but wish you could ask questions and speak to someone about painting? This class is for you!

Join Adam Brennan as he goes over the basics of miniature painting: he’ll cover supplies, basic techniques and the tricks that pros use to make their miniatures pop!

Supplies:

  • Round Brush, size 0
  • Round Brush, size 000
  • Paper Towels
  • Hobby knife, AKA an X-Acto knife
  • Wax paper, an old glossy photograph or a wet palette (your choice. Michaels sells a wet palette)
  • Recycled glass jar or an old mug to hold water. Just pick something you don’t mind getting dirty.
  • Acrylic paints. Any will do really, just make sure they are water soluble. The colors you need depend on your project, but for starters you cant go wrong with the primary colors plus black and white. Some popular brands among miniature painters are: Vallejo, Reaper Miniature, Army Painter, Games Workshop.
  • Black, grey or white spray primer. Most of the brands above have a primer, but I’m partial to Armory Spray Primer, especially for white
  • A nice well lit area to paint. I find a small desk lamp handy
  • Some old newspaper or junk mail adds

Optional Supplies:

  • Liquitex slow-dri blending medium
  • An extra round brush size zero for blending
  • More colors: more the better
  • A tackle box to store paints
  • Wall tack mounting putty and an old empty spice container or a painting handle if you’re feeling fancy
  • Hobby files and sandpaper
  • Testor’s Dullcote Spray Laquer

Note: most of the paints you can find at a local Hobby Shop like Wizard’s Asylum or Top Deck Games if you want to shop local. Testor’s, brushes, hobby knives, Liquitex and wet palettes you can find at Michaels.

Jenny will lead the class through a class that will prepare you to have homemade chicken and noodles and dessert on your family’s table in under an hour using ingredients your probably already have in your pantry! After an hour of fun, this meal is guaranteed to be devoured in less than 6 minutes!

Ingredients needed:

  • salt or garlic salt

For dessert (cookies) add:

  • 1 cake mix, any flavor
  • 2 more eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil

Kitchen supplies:

  • a large pot (you’ll be cooking your chicken in a lot of liquid so think big soup pot/dutch oven)
  • tongs or other utensil to get hot chicken out of the liquid
  • rolling pin (or a Mason-type jar/old jelly jar/old pickle jar – plastic won’t work)
  • small sharp knife and a fork

We will have this meal ready for your family to enjoy that night. Grab a loaf of bread or your favorite soup crackers to go along with it.

4. Storytelling with an Edge

Sloan Davis & Josh Baker October 22nd at 5:30-7:00 pm
TCC Facilitator: Rita Boggs

Sometimes crazy things happen to us: things we can hardly believe ourselves. Sometimes, we witness something or someone, and it’s astounding. Have you ever tried to retell the event and find it falls flat? It does not come across in the same emotional and astonishing way when you first witnessed or experienced it? This happens to the best of us. However, there are ways to overcome stumbling storytelling. This class offers tips in structure, performance, and other storytelling techniques to bring your stories to life. Who knows, maybe one day, you’ll tell a story on a stage in front of a large audience, or, if not, just be able to sit with a friend and tell them an astonishing tale.
