Tinkering Workshops

Tinkering Workshops

Bring the kids to two more Saturday Tinkering Workshops with Montalvo Teaching Artist Michele Guieu on March 26 and April 2 from 10am-12pm.

These hands-on workshops get the whole family involved in the creative process, as they make art out of ordinary objects, solve puzzles creatively, and more. Each day will offer a different theme, but there are no rules or assignments—so feel free to branch out with your own artistic explorations!

We will provide various materials to tinker with, but guests are welcome to bring their own. Workshops are just $10 per person, with a 20% discount for any family of 4 or more. NOTE: Advance registration is required (no walk-ups)!



April brings acclaimed writers to Montalvo
The Charles Brothers & Armistead Maupin in our Writers Series

Our distinguished Writers Series continues this April with two fascinating discussions. Don't miss these upcoming events, moderated by award-winning author Katherine Maxfield!

Comedy writers and brothers, Glen and Les Charles have penned scripts for Cheers, Taxi, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Bob Newhart Show, and more. Raised in Las Vegas, the brothers ditched their boring day jobs to launch two of the most preeminent careers in TV sitcom writing, garnering dozens of Emmy awards and entertaining audiences in prime time for decades. 

The Charles brothers rarely make public appearances, and their Montalvo engagement on Wednesday, April 6, at 7pm is a Bay Area exclusive. They will screen hilarious TV clips and share behind-the-scenes show business stories

Internationally bestselling author Armistead Maupin comes to Montalvo on Sunday, April 24, at 3pm. Books will be available for purchase. Maupin began his iconic Tales of the City series in 1976, and it has since blazed a trail through popular culture—from globally best-selling novels, to a Peabody Award-winning television miniseries. His other novels include Maybe the Moon and The Night Listener—which became a 2006 feature film starring Robin Williams.
