Art Workshops in Palo Alto and Portland

I can’t believe that we’re approaching the end of the year! What?! Is it really already December?

Before the year wraps up, I’m planning to participate in two really fun family events, and hope to see some of you there. For both events, I’ll lead a hands-on workshop, and will have signed copies of my book, TinkerLab: A Hands-on Guide for Little Inventors, available.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or around Portland, Oregon, please stop by and say hello…

Special bonus: if you’re planning to come, drop me a note in this form and I’ll have a little something extra set aside just for you 🙂 What is it? Well, you’ll have to stop by and find out.

Want some details? Here you go…
