The Bay Area's shelter-in-place order has brought countless events usually held as in-person gatherings online. We're aiming to support local businesses in San Francisco and Oakland by highlighting five of these events each day.
Got a suggestion for an online event based in SF or Oakland? Email our events reporter, Teresa Hammerl.
Here's your San Francisco online event calendar for Tuesday, September 8. Join a flamenco class, learn how to use at art critically and tune in to yoga classes.
Let's Make Stuff with d'Arci Bruno: Everyone’s a Critic
Join local artist d'Arci Bruno to learn how to look at art critically. What happens when you look at an artwork? What do you see? How did the artist do it? Why did the artist create it and what does it mean?
For this class, you will need a piece of your own artwork or artwork that you admire to practice analyzation techniques, as well as a pen and paper to take notes with.
When: Tuesday, September 8, 11:15 a.m.

September Yoga: Online Classes with Dana Damara
Then, practice yoga from the comfort of your own home during this live class with teacher Dana Damara. While we’re being asked to "isolate" at home, and accessing some sort of community is more important than ever before, this class will offer a sense of togetherness.
When: Tuesday, September 8, 5:30 p.m.
How to join: Via Eventbrite. Registration closes 30 minutes before class begins.
Price: This is a donation-based class.
Pure Techniques for Bata de Cola - Tuesday in September
Later, join the Mission’s Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco for an online class in Bata de Cola techniques.
Hear about the movement of legs, balancing, half turns and the placement of the bata, which is a dress that has multiple layers of ruffles wallowing for movement during the flamenco dance. There is no need to wear it if a participant doesn't have one or if there isn't enough space to move around with it at home.
When: Tuesday, September 8, 8 p.m.
