Autodidactism is awesome, but it can only take you so far. There are some topics and skill sets that cannot be mastered alone in one’s basement. Enter MindSpot, an “innovative learning experience for adults.” A few times a month, MindSpot offers classes on an eclectic array of topics. Between now and Valentine’s Day, for instance, you could learn “How To Walk In High Heels,” which you can then wear onstage now that you can “Tell Me A Story: The Storytelling Workshop.” If your story is good enough, you may wanna type it up: Luckily, you just got back from “Just Your Type: An Introduction To The Manual Typewriter” and when your tome is ready to be pitched as the 51st shade of gray, you drop off your manuscript at Random House in a schmancy home-made cover, thanks to “What A Relief: An Intro To Embossing.”
Through discussion, demonstration and hands-on activities, classes are taught by experts or amateur enthusiasts in a wide and diverse range of topics. Our workshops are intended to enhance specific skills or knowledge through intellectual interaction, creative processes, technical training and informal discussion.
The classes are affordable (usually $20-$25), convenient (they are weeknight evenings at various locations around the city, with the next three offerings being at Plastic Club) and they are usually one-offs, so if it’s fear of commitment that’s keeping you out of grad-school, MindSpot is a simple way to keep your learning lobes from atrophy.

If you happen to already know plenty about your passion, perhaps you wanna be on the other end of the chalk. MindSpot is always looking for passionate people to teach a class on something, check it out, yo. MindSpot is pretty much the opposite of this.
