We will be conducting a 10-week class at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo starting on February 17, 2015.

This class will be held on Tuesday Evenings for 2 ½ hours starting at 6:00pm and on Thursdays we will hold a “Google Hangout” (work from home over Internet) for in depth discussions of students projects.

This class is open to all people of all ages and does not require any other formal education – just bring your desire to do something for yourself.
