Make A Copper Valentine Rose at CMS!


Next week, join us for Make A Copper Valentine Rose.

This Valentine’s Day, make a Copper Forever Rose for that someone special in your life!  In this awesome, hands-on class, you’ll gain lots of new metal working skills by cutting, bending, texturing, layer, and soldering copper sheet to create a beautiful, 3-dimensional, life-size rose.  We will supply the copper and all tools you’ll need to form your forever flower, plus of course hands on instruction and two evenings full of fun. Who knows, maybe we’ll even bring chocolate…

This is a great class for those interested in: metal-working, creating small sculpture, playing with copper, or simply learning new maker skills!  And if you want, sign up WITH your valentine for an experience you can enjoy together!

Make a Copper Valentine Rose will run Tuesday & Wednesday, February 4th & 5th, 6 – 8:30 PM. Register here.

Tomorrow, there is still time to sign up for Painting the Portrait in Watercolor with artist Rober O’Brien.  ‘The human portrait will be explored in this workshop. Students will learn to paint a portrait with all of its nuances and subtleties in watercolor using a layering process.’ Register here.

Intro to Arduino

February 7th, 6 – 8:30 PM

This class is truly designed with the beginner in mind and serves as a great introduction to the world of physical computing! It is for anyone who has never played around with Arduino before and those who have played around a little bit but aren’t entirely sure about how the basics work. We’ll blink some lights, turn some motors, read some sensors and make a little noise. We’ll touch on some very basic programming and prototyping concepts as well!

12 and up. Under 12 are welcome with an adult partner or if they’ve been approved by the instructor.

Class fee includes one REXQualis Arduino UNO R3 Project Basic Starter Kit or a ELEGOO UNO Project Basic Starter Kit to take home after the class to continue making projects!

Laptops will be provided. Familiarity with Windows is strongly suggested. Non-members should bring a USB drive if they wish to save any work done in class. Please contact about the possibility of bringing your own laptop.
