Classes start Saturday, September 21st, 2019 starting at 9AM or 10AM in Towson. Classes are 50 minutes long, meet once a week, and last for 10 weeks. The tuition for the fall session costs $200.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the National Electronics Museum is hosting a temporary exhibit, "The Pace Collection: Unique and Rarely Seen NASA Apollo Mission Hardware". The exhibit features an eclectic mix of artifacts from a private collection. Don’t forget the Museum also has on permanent display the Westinghouse Apollo XI lunar TV camera. The exhibit is free with paid museum admission. Open 10 July through 15 October 2019.
This exhibition is on view through March 2020. The MdHS museum is open Wednesday-Saturday, 10 am-5 pm, and on Sundays, 12 pm-5 pm.
The exhibition features one-of-a-kind appliqué quilts created by Baltimore-native Mimi Dietrich. Ms. Dietrich is one of Maryland’s and the nation’s most accomplished quilters. In 2015 she was inducted into The Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana. “Hometown Girl” tells Ms. Dietrich’s story as a life-long Marylander and Baltimore native, and draws inspiration from the many students she has taught over her 35-year career.

We’re excited to announce the launch of the “Virtually Creative” after-school program.
The “Virtually Creative” after school program is an extension of our onsite programming that takes place at John Ruhrah Elementary/ Middle and Tench Tilghman Elementary/ Middle. In an effort to continue supporting our schools we are providing afterschool programming online. Each day, students receive homework help and hangout time to connect with friends. They will also have virtual Restorative Practice circles every Friday. Below is a detailed breakdown of the Virtually Creative schedule.
Have a monologue you have always wanted to work on? Need feedback but haven't had time in your life to dedicate to it? We'd love to offer our insight and advice to you over a 45 minutes session with our professional artists. Purchase and we will work around your schedule and needs!

"We are launching a new series called Five Minute Histories. Each day, we’ll record a short video about a different historic place in Baltimore. My on-site production crew consists of my 14 year old daughter and 15 year old son, and we are honoring Governor Hogan’s request and are doing this from home.
