Life Skills- Other,
Other
Do you want to dream of the life you want or do you want to live the life of your dreams? Do you frequently fantasize about the life you always wanted but never seem to enjoy? Does “the grass look greener on the other side”? Do you often wonder “what if this, or that, had happened”? Do you question “why, or why not, me”? We are, for the most part, conductors of our own life’s symphony, choreographers of our own life’s dance, authors of our own life’s story line. During this seminar, motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan provides insight on how to begin living a fulfilled life by incorporating awareness, acknowledgment and action into our daily lives.

Giouvalakis, Kathy Spark a Reaction with Sharpie Tie Dye Life Skills- Other,
Visual Arts- Crafts,
Visual Arts- Other
Sharpies are well-known for their permanent ink markers and pens. The ink in these will not dissolve in water. However, the ink does dissolve in rubbing alcohol. As the shirt absorbs the alcohol, it begins to pick up the ink and move it along with the alcohol as it spreads. The more alcohol you use the more it will spread. The ink will then dry when the alcohol evaporates. Because Sharpie’s ink doesn’t dissolve in water, these shirts are machine washable! THIS IS A CHEMICAL REACTION! After a demonstration of different patterns and techniques, participants will create a sparkling t-shirt, apron, tote bag, & bandana (librarian’s choice). Gloves and science goggles will be provided for fun and cleanliness.
