(January 26-March 2) BABY BUILDERS Any parent familiar with Bob the Builder might be particularly interested in a workshop at the Arlington Arts Center](http://www.arlingtonartscenter.org/) beginning tomorrow afternoon at 4:30. Spectacular Structures: Intro to sculpture and architecture is a six week course suitable for budding builders between the ages of five and seven. The class uses clay, wood and metal appealing to young architects and artists. Taking a cue from Michelangelo, the class will be taught in Italian, as well as English.

The arts center offers other classes which start soon, including If I Were a Caveman: Exploring media then and now, a drawing and painting class for pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten-age students.

(January 26) FOOD & FOLKLORE Another installation of the Food & Folklore series, will be held tomorrow night at Eatonville restaurant in DC, just off the U Street Corridor, starting at 6:30 p.m. NPR's own Tom Gjelten will be on hand for the evening's topic, Rum!, to share his knowledge of Emilio Bacardi, the rum business in Cuba, and to mix a few really cool drinks.

(Jan 23-April 11) BEAUTY & THE BRAIN The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore opens an exhibit on beauty and the brain, running through April 11th. A Neutral Approach to Aesthetics explores why people find things pretty, taking a look at the artist-as-neuroscientist in a show that's part exhibit, part experiment.
