Susan Pagones is passionate about Defensive Driving, and just opened up her new Defensive Driving course to help you reduce points and money on your car insurance. Classes are $30, and January and February are booked, so get in for March!
In December 2016, The “I’m Tired” Project co-founder Paula Akpan and Teaching Artist/Project Coordinator, Donna Mikkelsen conducted workshops on micro-aggressions, stereotypes and assumptions with the entire student body at Beacon’s Rombout Middle School. Each of the 600+ students were invited to write their own statement and accompanying explanation on paper. The statements were then written on the students’ hands and photographed. The photographs have been on view at the middle school through the holidays, and will now also be on view at the Center for Creative Education at 464 Main Street, Beacon. Find this exhibit and more in A Little Beacon Blog's Second Saturday Art Guide.

The project was funded in part by the Beacon Arts and Education Foundation and the Rombout Middle School PTO. Visit the project for an opening reception to from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the Center for Creative Education. Students, families and the community are all welcome to attend.
