You may think Kung Fu is about fighing, but it's really an art! Learn from masters and just wait...your black belt may not be too far off!

Little Haiti is our neighbor, so let's learn a little bit more about its incredible culture! Today, we will be treated to a lesson on art, culture, and language from locals right here in our own community!

Oooo la la! Today we will savor one of the delicacies of France- delicious sweet crepes. Why go to Paris when we can enjoy the tastes of France right on our own campus?

Many people associate Puerto Rico with its beaches, rainforest, and salsa music. But don't forget about its cuisine! Today we will learn how to make (and taste!) one of the island's national dishes- mofongo! Delicioso!

Such delicate paper, but with such a powerful message! This class will be taught online from a master on the other side of the country. Yes, this will not only be an origami lesson, but your first introduction into online learning!
