Ask the Doctor
Tuesday, April 8
Samaritan Counseling Ctr, 17195 Cleveland Rd., South Bend
Ask the Doctor - Presented by Dr. Auna Preston
What have you always wondered or wanted to know about "mental illness?" How can you tell if someone is clinically depressed or simply has "the blues?" What is the best way to suggest professional mental health services to a friend or member of your congregation? What is the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist? How can I help? Bring other questions and a sack lunch to this informal question and answer session. Please recognize that Dr. Preston is a clinical psychologist, not a medical doctor, and therefore questions regarding medications cannot be answered.
We will provide drinks, dessert, and a great discussion. This is a complimentary event; however, professionals may earn Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for $20 per workshop. Participants requiring CEU’s must submit their license number when registering for the event.

Krasl Art Center’s Fall Class Lineup Released
Beginning Monday: 10AM - 4PM
Krasl Art Center
707 Lake Boulevard
St. Joseph, Michigan
Fall classes for both adults and children will begin on September 29 at the Krasl Art Center in St. Joseph, Michigan.
The Krasl is widely known for its extensive adult class list in jewelry. This fall you will see classes in metal clay, silversmithing, basic jewelry, beach glass, earrings, and an interesting new class called Knitting with Wire where participants learn the ancient Viking method of knitting strands of wire to form beautiful supple necklaces, bracelets and anklets.
Ceramics always plays a big role in Krasl classes because of the extensive ceramics studio at the Center with several kilns to fire class work. This fall is no exception with classes in Raku, sculptural ceramics, and basic skills, not to mention a new Wednesday evening class.
The Krasl also offers a class every Tuesday year-round for home school students. This fall it is Ceramic Overview for ages 4-12, where students will look at ceramics around the world while learning fundamental skills. Family workshops are a popular activity and the Krasl offers several, including Family Art Studio, and Family Woodworking.
The old favorites are still available at the Krasl. Classes for ages 4-7, and ages 8-14, where basic skills are learned as well as more advanced techniques are available in drawing, oil painting, acrylic, watercolor, textile painting, sculpture, and even cartooning. And brand new for this year is our Teen Intensives for ages 12-17. Ceramics, drawing studio, and textile painting are taught Tuesdays or Wednesdays after school.
Glass classes are still hot, and the Krasl offers glass bead making and glass fusing workshops as well as mosaics. And for those whose kids on a tighter Holiday budget than they are, the Krasl offers Giftmaking Galore, where kids can make gifts and cards for all occasions.
The Krasl offers scholarships for those who qualify; information about classes, fees, as well as scholarships is available at (269) 983-0271.
