New Year's resolutions are for suckers. Why would anyone choose to turn over a new leaf in January, a month best reserved for footie pajamas, hot chocolate and weight gain? The real time to explore and expand is now.

So make your summer arts resolutions now; coincidentally enough, I have a few suggestions for this week to start you off.

Summer may be synonymous with a break from education, but that doesn’t mean you want your brain to rust.
