H5348: A Conversation Between Poems and Paintings in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Students will examine various poems and paintings that are inspired by each other. Discussion will focus on how these two forms speak to one another and enrich our understanding of the subject matter. If we have time and inclination, students may compose their own poetry or drawings based on another piece of art.

X3064: Introductory Dark Chocolate Tasting in Splash! 2009 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2009)
So you like chocolate. A lot. You even have a favorite brand. (Ghirardelli? Hershey's is not an acceptable choice.) But it’s all just chocolate, right? Wrong! There’s a lot more to chocolate than what you buy in the grocery store. There are gradations of how dark it is, different types of beans, even chocolate made from beans all from the same country or even the same plantation! And they all have distinctive tastes. We’ll have a range of different chocolates, as well as information about the different types of chocolate. We’ll explore several different aspects of high-quality chocolate (such as percentage cocoa contents, and what country it comes from) and discuss what these things do to the flavor. We’ll also bring some suggestions for where to look for buying your own chocolate. Note: Although younger students may take this class, please make sure they can sit still and join in a reasonable discussion. Anyone being rowdy will be asked to leave.
