 When I think of fun family activities around South Windsor CT one of the first places that come to mind is Six Flags New England.  Six Flags is close to South Windsor only about a 20-25 minute drive.  Six Flags is a lot of fun for all ages.  I have four kids and they all love it there.  For how often we go it ends up being quite the bargain.  This past winter Six Flags offered 4 packs of season passes for $50 each and it included 1 parking pass and 4 coupon books.

VIEW OUR ART SHOW HERE    As an adolescent in Russia, I attended community school in the fields of music and fine arts. After graduating from this institution, I pursued further education and earned a Master of Arts degree in music and teaching thereof.    My passion for these two fields continues. As years go by, I love opening people to self expression by teaching them to play piano and to draw and paint.    That is why I provide art classes every other Saturday for anyone who is interested. Using the elements of drawing and painting we create beautiful and exciting things-some from imagination, some from nature. I teach students basic drawing skills, including breaking down forms into simple parts, measuring, perspective, foreground/background relationships. Students work with a vari...
