Chess Training

Arlington Community Education has new adult classes starting each week through the end of November. Most classes are held online via Zoom in the evening, but there are also daytime options.

During this time when traveling and gathering in-person are risky and challenging, weve heard touching stories about friends and family members whove gathered together, online, to take one of our classes, said ACE Director Jen Rothenberg. Whether cooking a delicious meal, learning a new craft or taking a virtual walking tour together, we want to encourage people to continue to connect in this fun and unique way.
