Free Art workshops Broward County

In ancient Greek mythology, nine muses governed the arts and inspired creativity: Calliope (epic poetry), Clio (history), Erato (lyric poetry), Euterpe (music), Melpomene (tragedy), Polyhymnia (choral poetry), Terpsichore (dance), Thalia (comedy), and Urania (astrology). At the 9Muses Art Center in Lauderhill, the range of creative expression is as broad, if not broader: It features creative writing, poetry, piano, guitar, voice, percussion, photography, decoupage, mosaic, sewing, clay, ceramics, pottery, framing, drawing, pastels, acrylic, watercolor, and even computer-based design.

At the eclectic but not-well-known cultural center, a dozen instructors teach classes in the aforementioned disciplines as well as other, more prosaic subjects such as exercise and anger management. There are also workshops for bipolar and anxiety disorders. 9Muses, you see, is part of the Mental Health Association of Broward County. The center provides opportunities for people with mental illness to express themselves and recover through the arts.

Membership in 9Muses is free to anyone with a psychiatric diagnosis, but that requirement is highly flexible. Shane Weaver, the center's gallery coordinator and manager of its in-house frame shop, says the clientele ranges from people who have had, for instance, a major episode of depression to more seriously ill patients who are bused in from mental institutions during the week. There are more than 3, 000 members, and 50 to 75 use the center on an average day.

This month features art by Rita Maria Yebra.

You Can't Be Neutral in History

From the Introduction to You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train
By Howard Zinn
I had been invited to give a talk in Kalamazoo Michigan. It was the night of the final televised presidential debate of the 1992 campaign, and to my surprise (did they need a break from election madness?) there were several hundred people in the audience. This was the quincentennial year of the Columbus landing in the Western Hemisphere and I was speaking on 'The Legacy of Columbus, 1492-1992.'
Ten years earlier, in the very first pages of my book People's History of the United States, I had written about Columbus in a way that startled my readers
