Are you ready for some fun this week? We think so.
Tonight, we've got two films: No Country for Old Men at 6 p.m. in the B2 Conference Center. And for KnitFlix, we're showing an end of the school year special -- The Breakfast Club. This film starts at 5:30 p.m., Level 1 Fresh City Lounge.
On Thursday, Craftinatrix Trish Tilly turns a few materials and supplies into gorgeous, modern Pom Pom Flowers. We've saved a seat for Elvis and we're pretty sure he won't make it, so sign up and join Trish for this fun DIY.
The Fresh City Life My Branch Colorado Authors Series presents Carol Berg at Schlessman on Sunday, May 22, at 2:00 p.m.

Little Edie's style lives on in fashion, decor and crafting.
"This is the best thing to wear for today, you understand. Because I don't like women in skirts and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, I think. Then you have the pants under the skirt and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. And you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today." -- Little Edie, Grey Gardens
ArtSkool debuts with a workshop that highlights one of the first art mediums: Mud!
1. Existing at or from the beginning of time, primeval -- the primordial oceans
2. (esp. of a state or quality) Basic and fundamental -- the primordial needs of the masses
While it's unlikely that the first sea creature to give land a try looked back at its tracks and noted the artistic pattern they made in the mud -- clay was and remains one of our primordial materials for making art.
Our Craftinatrix Trish Tilly held crafters in sway at our Tea Painting and Tea Cup Candlemaking workshop.

Last Saturday, the Fresh City Lounge at Central Library was buzzing with crafters on a mission -- to make some adorable candles and then create handpainted tags to go with them. One of the most interesting elements of the class is that the delicate paintings were made using steeped teas as the medium. And even though crafters were not relaxing over a cup of tea, a sense of tea-induced tranquility seemed to infuse the students.
