Offering more than 35 fun-filled and personal enrichment courses to the region, Winter Weekends 2006 is sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Office of Outreach and Professional Services for the enjoyment of the entire family.

 “Saturday Cartoon Alternatives for Kids”  feature many educational and entertaining courses for children to teach them about art, science, and more.  Many courses feature some of today’s most popular characters including Curious George, Dr. Seuss, King Kong, and Willy Wonka.

Helpful tips to a healthy body will be explored in the “Mind and Body Connection” series featuring  “Healthy Eating,” “Internal Body Cleansing and Detoxification,” and “Wheat-Free, Gluten Free Food for Good Health.”

For those looking for a new hobby to fill the long winter nights, the “Purposeful Pastime” series includes courses on knitting, feng shui, home buying, and conquering clutter.

Families can learn yoga and meditation, drumming for fun, pysanky egg art, or how to make bread, pierogis, or biscotti at the “Family Saturdays at the Bottle Works” series.
