Acrylic Pouring Workshop - $35
Friday, Mar. 12 - 1 pm to 2:30 pm
Dazed & Reused Artworks - Tacoma, WA
Have you ever wanted to learn methods for pouring acrylic paint? Well, then this event is for you! Join Dazed & Reused for a painting class that will provide laughs and lessons that will have you pouring paint like a pro (or at least better than you currently can).
Connecting with the Universe Through Science and Stories - Free
Friday, Mar. 12 - 6 pm to 7 pm
The High Desert Museum - Bend, OR
Join Amy Sayle and The High Desert Museum for an exploration of the Universe. Using planetarium software and images, Sayle will help you identify celestial bodies near you. She will also show you how the sky can be your “compass, clock, calendar, and time machine!” When you look up at the sky, wouldn’t it be so great to know what you are looking at?
Conifer Kingdom - Free
Saturday, Mar. 13 - 10 am
Sunnyside Nursery - Marvsville, WA
Honestly, does this have a ton to do with art? No. But with an event name like “Conifer Kingdom,” we were practically obligated to add it. Join Sunnyside for an all-ages, all-skills class that will show you the wonders of the humble conifer. For those unanointed, a conifer is a type of cone-bearing seed plant. Now you know.
Yoga + Beer Yoga Class - Free
Saturday, Mar. 13 - 10 am to 11 am
Yoga + Beer - Salem, OR
This is a sixty-minute, “all levels flow” yoga stream, hosted by the online Yoga + Beer Community. The event is free but a donation of $5 is suggested for those looking to support the event and organizers. Additionally, you can find all of the recordings of the past streams on their Youtube page, which stretch back to March. So grab your yoga mat, a coffee (or beer, we won’t tell) and stream some low-stress yoga sessions.
So Bad It’s Good: Anaconda at MoPOP- Free
Saturday, Mar. 13 - 6 pm
Museum of Pop Culture - Seattle, WA
“Movies you love to hate… They’re the cinematic junk food that feeds our souls, tickles our funnybone, and rolls our eyes.” Join the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle for a night of B-rated fun! Anaconda, a 1997 B-rated movie that follows a documentary crew looking for an ancient tribe that rescues a psychotic snake hunter (John Voight), who is chasing a monstrously huge anaconda that obviously kills most of them before the end. It has Ice Cube, Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson and other iconic actors. Rotten Tomatoes said about the film, “Anaconda's pulpy pleasures are constricted by its own absurdity, but creature feature fans may enjoy its brazen silliness” which is a spot-on analysis.
Deep Dark Yoga - Free
Sunday, Mar. 14 - 2:30 pm
Remote Livestream via Zoom
We have another iteration of the amazing yoga stream Deep Dark Yoga. If you like doom metal and need to stretch, this is the perfect event. This livestream yoga class instructs all levels of participants in basic yoga, all while doomy metal plays in the background. Don’t worry, it’s not like it’s all blast beats and growling, but the music offers something new for those who like a little bit of background doom and gloom in their Sunday. This recurring yoga course is free, though donations to the studio are encouraged and waiting lines tend to form to get into the Zoom chat.
