BEGINNER CHESS CLUB - ONLINE
Learn how to play chess and understand most fundamental chess principles with Nolan DeMott! You’ll learn how to set up the board properly, the rules of the game (i.e. how different pieces move), basic rule nuances such as castling, and the difference between checkmate and stalemate. By the end of this 9 week session, you should understand most fundamental chess principles such as proper piece development (i.e. minor pieces before major pieces), piece values, controlling the center, undefended pieces, trading when ahead and basic tactical ideas (i.e. pins, skewers, forks).

TAROT AND STORYTELLING
We use the principles of theatre and storytelling to interpret cards — short readings, or longer narratives. A deck of 72 tarot cards is intimidating in size for anyone (also the cards are, y’know, bigger than playing cards). By talking about the human side of the suits (cups, emotion, wands, work and ambition, swords, intellect and conflict, pentacles, money/means) an audience is soon telling their own story!
GRADES 5 & UP (adults welcome too!)
