Commonwealth Charter Academy visits the Pajama Factory

The Commonwealth Charter Academy joined us yesterday for a day chock-full of workshops, classes, and hands on training right here at the Pajama Factory.  Ralph Wilson of the Williamsport Community Darkroom, one of the Factory Works program initiatives, coordinated with several other Pajama Factory tenants to design courses that would expose the students to a variety of subjects, mediums, and techniques.

Diane Hollis taught the students Drawing and Color Theory while Angela Nicholas worked with them on Creative and Memoir Writing.  Ralph Wilson introduced them to the historic photo process, and Lisa Andrus of the Williamsport Community Kitchen ran a Hospitality Class which taught students how to prep, prepare, and serve food.  This culminated with the students serving the entire group their lunch for the day.

We loved having the students and chaperons of the Commonwealth Charter Academy here and want to thank the many volunteers that made it all possible.  There is always something fun to do and learn here at the Pajama Factory.
