Set Design, Jewelry, Self Discovery, RAPAC Challenges, Skating and more...

This winter try something new, invest in yourself! In your community there is so much to do, not just sports for athletes (but there are those too!). What is it that you are in to?


Visual art: self expression and discovery through a creative design process. Through visual art you will learn to channel creative ideas into a project that will reveal unique results.

MOVE: Fitness

Winter is a cold season, so start moving! To get moving it takes encouragement and effort. Throw on the winter clothes and take a walk, jog, run or hike. If you need an incentive try the RAPAC 100 Miles in 100 Days Challenge. Giorgetti Arena is a place to be if you enjoy skating.

PERFORM: Theatre

Confidence, community, and strength in character are all benefits through participation in theatre. There is not a one size fits all role in Rutland Youth Theatre, but each participating member plays a vitally important part in creating the performance. This winter there are

Creative outlet for the artistic teen

With the new space at the Courcelle building we are able to create new program opportunities. There are two new arts and crafts classes offered in the evening this fall for young adults through adults. For the creative soul with limited time this might just be a way to relax and express yourself through design. Or if you were looking to give something handmade as a holiday gift one of these class may be able to help with the time, space, material, and instruction to do so.


Jewelry Design will teach basic techniques for forming bracelets, earrings, rings, and necklaces.  Find out which tools and materials are the best to use for each step of the process in chaining, jump rings, wire wrapping, crimping and more.  Bring home some handmade creations after every class.  There will be two sessions offered this fall, with the first session beginning Wednesday September 10th.

September 13 - October 18 (6 classes)
Tuesdays 3:30PM - 5:00PM
Fee/session: *$67/78 NR


Play With Clay will allow artists to make projects based on the technique of the week.  Handbuilt forms slabbed, coiled, carved, or pressed molded.  Come with your ideas or find something in our project library.  All projects will be glazed and fired.  Think about the coming holidays and other gift giving opportunities.

October 30 - December 18 (no class Nov. 27)
Thursdays 6:30 - 8:00PM
Fee/session: *$93/104 NR
Additional supply fee $20

All classes are held in the Hands On Minds On Studio at 16 North Street Extension
