##1## JUNE 2008 CLASSES ####

After a 4 month hiatus, screen printing is back. We'd like to welcome our
new screen printing instructor Philip Sachs. Phil has been teaching screen
printing over at Etsy labs for the last bit, and we're really excited to
have him join the 3rd Ward team. Check out his screen printing class here:

*Screen Printing Intensive - Phil Sachs
Sunday June 22th * 1p-6p * $135 M / $170 NM
http://www.3rdward.com/classes/june/diy

Screen Printing is a simple and effective way to produce an unlimited number
of virtually identical prints onto practically any surface. A screen fabric
is stretched tightly onto a wooden frame and is coated with a photosensitive
material. Part of the screen is then blocked with a stencil and is exposed
through a photo process leaving your image on the screen. When ink is
deposited onto the screen, it is pushed through with a squeegee leaving the
image on the printing surface which may be fabric, paper, glass, wood, or
just about anything.

In this class you will learn all of the steps involved in the screen
printing process from design conception to the finished product. No prior
knowledge is required, however students are encouraged to prepare their
designs on a computer program like Photoshop and basic knowledge of similar
programs and access to a computer is helpful.

##WOOD, METAL, SCULPTURE##

This class will cover the construction, finishing and installation of
cabinets, shelves, book cases and any manner of awesome thing into which one
might place, store or display any manner of other awesome thing. Whether
you're replacing those old, gross laminate cbainets in your
turn-of-the-century-built-then-mid-seventies-renovated kitchen, or building
a shelving and storage system for your library of 24 (starring Keifer
Sutherland) DVDs, we'll be covering all the steps it'll take to maximize
wall space, minimize clutter and maintain sanity. Shelves: Cheaper than a
Therapistâ„¢.

##3## WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE OF THE MONTH ####

Brownian Motion: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brownian_motion

Brownian Motion (named in honor of the botanist Robert Brown) is the random
movement of particles suspended in a liquid or gas or the mathematical model
used to describe such random movements, often called a particle theory.

The mathematical model of Brownian motion has several real-world
applications. An often quoted example is stock market fluctuations. Another
example is the evolution of physical characteristics in the fossil
record.

Brownian motion is among the simplest continuous-time stochastic processes,
and it is a limit of both simpler and more complicated stochastic processes
(see random walk and Donsker's theorem). This universality is closely
related to the universality of the normal distribution. In both cases, it is
often mathematical convenience rather than the accuracy of the models that
motivates their use.
