Kids’ class: Who’s In There? Puzzle Box with Dolly Gott, Saturday, February 27, 10 a.m.-noon

 Join this class to see “who’s in there.”  Kids will cover a shoebox and discover more about themselves through a puzzle they create.  They will be guided through a breath and meditation exercise to promote relaxation, then to music they will create a picture, or story board and cut it into a puzzle. 

This is a good way to remind them, said facilitators, that “life can get scattered, but we are always still us.” Kids will take their puzzle home so they can put it together later when they “need a reminder of how great they are.” Class taught by life coach and energy practitioner Dolly Gott, and her 12-year-old daughter Jessica will share her experience of self-expression through drawing. Bring a shoe box.  Additional supply list will be provided at time of registration.  $20 for everyone.

The Orion Art Center is located at 115 S. Anderson Street in downtown Lake Orion. Pre-registration is required for all classes. Register by email at or call 248-693-4986.
