The Birmingham community is filled with extraordinary music, theatre, dance, art and design events, but here is a way to better understand and enjoy these experiences. Dean Hopkins will teach a class entitled A Patron’s Guide to Birmingham Arts. The class will meet each Monday at 10 a.m. to preview upcoming events around our community and study subjects related to these performances, exhibits and festivals. Special guests will provide an inside perspective of the arts and how to make the most of each opportunity. All of this will be in our new facility on the other side of Lakeshore Drive between Covenant Presbyterian Church and Homewood High School. The beautiful colonial-style building is completely ADA compliant with convenient parking, covered portico, playground and gardens.
