The Art of College Applications

Thursday, July 30, 2015

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Main Library – Applying to college this fall? This seminar will teach you the “nuts and bolts” of how to present information clearly and compellingly in your college applications. We will focus primarily on the Common Application, but also go over strategies to help you save time and energy on other applications you may be filing (Rutgers anyone?). Take what you learn from this seminar on July 30th and apply it the following week when the Common Application – and many other college applications – open for students graduating from high school in 2016. Bring a pen and paper as you’ll want to take notes! The seminar will be presented by Rhiannon Schade, Director of Collegewise of Millburn. Reservations are recommended. You can reserve seats at: https://artofcollegeapplication.eventbrite.com

Mehndi – the Art of Henna for Teens and Adults

Monday, August 3, 2015

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Main Library – The mehndi, or henna plant has been used since the Bronze Age as a dye, fragrance and decoration, as well as for its medicinal value. This traditional form of decoration is used primarily by women to adorn their hands and feet for weddings, festivals and other special occasions. Its popularity continues to spread worldwide with the migration of people from India and other Eastern countries. In this hands-on workshop you will learn to draw traditional Indian motifs and application techniques, and then use real henna paste to make your own designs!  Register at MMLMehndi.eventbrite.com
