Workshop Offerings & Instructors:


1) “Chess is Life” Bobby Fisher

Chess, with Steven Korach (ages 10 and up)

One of our favorites, this class engages the mind and provides a real challenge! You'll love the final session as the class members take on our Grandmaster, Steve Korach — all at the same time!


2) "Painting with Watercolors", with noted artist, Anya Gerasimchuk

Join our own "artist in residence," Anya Gerasimchuk, for what promises to be a beautiful and inspiring workshop. Anya's work in watercolor, oils, charcoal drawings, and pastels has been exhibited in Russia, Europe, and America, and we are thrilled she has offered to lead this special class. We hope to be treated to a display of our class members' paintings at the final session!


3) “Never Take Your Eye Off the Ball” or Always Think…The Ball Is Coming Back!

Table Tennis, with Fr. Steven and Paul Kostoff

Another perennial favorite, this energetic class harnesses skill and the competitive spirit for a fun and dynamic building of fellowship and comraderie. The Table Tennis Tourney at our final session is great fun, and a real crowd pleaser!


4) “X Marks the Spot"

Counter Cross Stitch, with Shirley Leara

New this year, join Shirley for what is likely to be our most peaceful and irenic workshop yet. Once you start Cross-Stitch, you are on a path which can never be exhausted, but offers growth in skill and the virtues.


5) “The Timeless Interpretation of Life”

Folk Dancing, with Presvytera Deborah Kostoff

This delightful and energetic class led by Presvytera Deborah is a beloved favorite which we look forward to each time it is offered. Even if you don't join the class, you will want to attend to observe the final session and demonstration of the different dances learned, and share in real joy of life and fellowship through Traditional Folk Dancing.


6) “Pursuing the Light”

Improving your Photography, with Ralph Sidway

For all skill levels, ages approximately 10 and up. No special camera required! Whether you have a DSLR, a compact zoom camera, or just want to make better photos with your smart phone, this class will cover key photography principles and techniques to improve your images. We hope to present a gallery exhibit of our students' finest images at the closing session!
