Greene Block + Studios, 18 Main St, Waterville

A monthly, arts-based professional development opportunity open to all educators. Learn from artists across disciplines techniques and tools you can bring back to your classrooms to support learning in all subject matter areas, build classroom community, and find practices to support your own wellness. Provided in partnership between Colby College Arts Office and Waterville Public Schools. WPS educators receive one hour of professional development credits.

There is no better way to unbend that sore back and tight neck than an hour of Tai Chi exercise! Loosen up those tight hips, knees and ankles and get the blood flowing again with careful focused breathing and movement. This free workshop is for all ages, abilities, and levels of experience.
