The schedule is as follows:

o June 11: Storytelling with Akbar Imhotep. Imhotep is an Atlanta story-teller who brings his stories to life with puppets, props, voices and theatrics. He began his artistic career in 1977 as an actor with the Proposition Theatre Co. In 1979, he was introduced to puppetry at the Center for Puppetry Arts. After a six-year residence at the center, he launched his solo career, traveling around the city with his colorfully draped suitcases filled with magic, wonder and excitement. Imhotep has been affiliated with the Wren’s Nest since 1985 and served as the storyteller-in-residence from 1985 to 1999.

o June 18: Cooking Demonstration by Young Chefs Academy of Sandy Springs. It offers cooking events and lessons for children and teens.

o June 25: Exploding Potions! Presented by Big Thinkers Science and Exploration. Big Thinkers provides interactive and hands-on science programming for elementary-aged children throughout the state. Their goal is to inspire children to think big by scientifically engaging with the world around them.

o July 2: Musical Moves: Interactive Music & Dance with Muse for Life. The Sandy Springs-based community education center offering music lessons, dance classes, music therapy, yoga and community outreach program, will instruct in creative movement and how to interpret and move to music.
