VIRTUAL RECREATION CLASSES

Virtual Classes can be meaningful and even inspiring. Our classes provide essential learning, socializing opportunities, and the chance to experience the pure enjoyment of meeting new people. The Corte Madera Parks and Recreation Department understands how difficult the isolation of sheltering in place has been for everyone. To help our community, we have worked diligently to find quality, highly engaging instructors to offer a variety of wonderful educational experiences.

Here is a Sneak Peek at what’s coming! Check Back June 12th for more info & Registration Links

YOUTH CLASSES- Cooking, Magic & Martial Arts

- Cooking Skillz!* Instructor: Noelle & Mo the Bird. Grades 5-8, 10 students max. Children will learn cooking basics, safety skills, and their way around the kitchen, all while experiencing how fun cooking can be. Classes are taught with our sun conure, Mo, a rainbow parrot, who will also munch down on the delicacies your children will learn to make. Get prepped with a grocery & supply list the weekend before so your child will have all ingredients needed to make the recipes. Recipes are nut free but have dairy & gluten. Requirements: Children will need to know how to properly handle a knife and be familiar with stove top and ovens. We will hone their techniques, but a basis of general knowledge will need to already be developed.
