Go see these shows!

Arts&Letters missed last night’s ArtWalk, and will be missing March’s, too. Why? Because I will be in class, learning the ins and outs of basic web design. (Yeah, I’d rather be looking at art, too, but the hope is that this class will help me get a job.)

Through WorkSource and Cascadia Community College, I applied for and received a grant of $1900 to take an intense, full-time web design course. The funding came through the Workforce Investment Act, and it is specifically for people who are currently on unemployment and wish to upgrade their job skills. I’m now in school three nights a week, and am, by all counts, a full-time student. Crazy.

As a result, I will probably be posting a little less until the end of March.

In the meanwhile, I recommend that you check out the following shows:
