Learnapalooza Workshops 6/25

Quimby’s welcomes Learnapalooza for a second year. It’s a festival of free workshops, where Chicagoans will share their skills by leading free workshops throughout the day in different places. Quimby’s welcomes “Arty Party” and “Transmission” comics artist Sara Drake, who will be leading comics-making sessions in the afternoon. Her free workshops will be held at these times here at Quimby’s:

1:45 comics making demo

3:00 self-publishing demo

4:45 comics drawing workshop



Here’s more info about the rest of the festival!

Want to be the next National Geographic photographer? Or learn to build a website, prepare a summer sandwich, knit, cure bacon, or dance like a Bollywood star? Don’t miss a bounty of workshops on Saturday, June 25th, 2011 from 10am to 5pm for the 2nd annual Learnapalooza, a summer festival of learning with nearly 100 free workshops across Wicker Park, led by neighbors, business owners, or you! The workshops are held at a variety of places around Wicker Park, including Quimby’s!

Free workshops will include everything from improv comedy to social entrepreneurship to board games to worm composting and much more. Workshops will be hosted at more than a dozen businesses and organizations, and headquartered at the Wicker Park Art Center. The majority of the workshops are aimed at adults, but there will be a few options for children and families as well. It’s a fun, free way to share your passions, learn new skills, and connect with your neighbors.

Learnapalooza is a volunteer-organized event and run in partnership with CommuniTeach, a website that makes it easy to learn from your neighbors for free throughout the year. Please visit www.learnapaloozachi.com to see the current list of classes and venues, sign up to teach a workshop, and join the Learnapalooza mailing list.

We look forward to seeing you on June 25th!

Learnapalooza is sponsored in part by WPB, the Special Service Area for the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods. For more information on their partner, CommuniTeach, visit www.communiteach.com
