Glass with Class has teamed up with Adult Education to offer beginner classes.

If you are wanting to learn stained glass from start to finish then this is the class for you!  You will be learning the art of Tiffany-stained glass and making your own bird suncatcher.  You will learn the process from cutting the glass, to grinding, soldering, and finishing your pieces.  You must be registered at least one week before the class starts. Lisa will have one pattern that you will all be working on. 

We will be using lead and chemicals during this process as well as sharp glass.  Safety equipment will be provided, and you will be asked to wear them during your class as well as signing a waiver.

Please do not wear nice clothes as you will be getting dirty during the class.

Northern Viewpoint Book Club - March - 1984


with Christa Galipeau

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 2, 2023 at 6 pm

Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...


A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the novel’s hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions—a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.


Adult Driver Training


with Aaron Buzza

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 7, 2023 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

Must be 18 or older to participate.

This course will prepare you to take the State of Maine written exam and road test in order to obtain your permit and/or license.

The class meets in person to complete the in-class portion. During that time your permit application and required paperwork will be submitted to the state for you to receive your driver's permit. When your permit is received, the instructor will schedule your driving times individually.

Those adults currrently holding a permit in need of road time are also encouraged to enroll.  We can discuss applicable fees and driving times.

The cost covers in-class time (approx 6 hours), driving time with the instructor in his vehicle (up to 6 hours), and application fee for the state. We have added this course to the list of approved state of Maine training providers. If you are a recipient of services from qualifying agencies (Fedcap, ACAP, Career Center, HOPE, etc.), there's a strong likelihood that you will qualify for the course fee to be covered.

If you are unable to pay for this course on your own and aren't sure where to turn, we can help you figure out your next steps. Payment plans are also available.

Before you can start the course you must provide us with a copy of your ID and social security card.  If you are under the age of 23, you must also provide your birth certificate with the embossed seal.  Notarized copies are NOT acceptable.

Academic credit will be awarded to SAD 1 Adult & Community Education high school diploma students.

2 additional sessions through Mar 21, 2023

This class will teach you how to make shelf sitters, compacts with mirrors, large horse, bookmarks and many other things with resin.  This is a 2 part class.

The first class will teach you how to mix the resin, color it and pour.  It takes about 24 hours to cure the resin.  The next class you will come and if it's done you can take it out of the mold and put the finishing touches on it.  

Some people may have a mold that they choose to do 2 different colors. The second class will be pouring the second color.   These make beautiful gifts and is a fun and a little sticky activity to do.

**We will be adding more molds to this class over the summer so there will be a variety of things to choose from. We have an elephant, horse, wolf, eagle, bear and moose.**
