If the idea of taking a class devoted to flower arrangements or watercolors makes you think of ladies who lunch, then a different kind of self-improvement class might be more your speed. How about learning to make smoothies, creating your own stuffed superhero or shooting your own breakdance music video? In an effort to promote its new fuel-efficient, subcompact Yaris, Toyota is sponsoring YARISWORKS. The four-day series of indie-craft DIY workshops hits Atlanta AUG. 16-19. The kids from the Indie Craft Experience collective and Young Blood Gallery are leading the local workshops. Check the website for locations. Free. www.yarisworks.com.
