I Can't Workshop Series


Think you can’t do something, like sing, dance, or meditate? Energize a dormant part of your brain by trying something new.  Taught by TCC faculty and community artists, these lunchtime workshops will give you a break from the daily grind. Who knows, at the end of the workshop, you might find yourself thinking, “I can’t believe I just did that! What else do I think I can’t do?” For a complete list, view the brochure.

All events are free and open to the public, with free parking available in any TCC lot.
