Don’t worry. This “camp” does not require, tents, sleeping bags or bug spray. All you need is your own artistic inclination and the ability to have fun.
This innovative approach to art classes offers ACRYLIC PAINTING and SCULPTING, all in ONE night a week. Each Thursday night, for 8 weeks from 6:00 until 9:00, you will learn two different “subjects”. Please note: each “subject” will have a separate materials fee.

SUBJECT ONE: ACRYLIC TRIO
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

This section of camp will guide the student through the process of painting with acrylics, culminating in three separate pieces: a landscape, a still-life and a portrait.
Suited for beginning to intermediate learners, students will become familiar with the techniques of perspective, form and freestyle painting.
(a materials fee of $65.00 will be required at the beginning of the class, payable by cash to the Instructor. Also, students will be asked to bring in a photograph of someone that they will use to reproduce during the portraiture section of the class)

SUBJECT TWO: CLAY SCULPTING
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Bring out the Michelangelo in you!

Air drying clay is a medium widely used for those who have no access to a potter’s wheel or kiln. Perfect for broadening the imaginative eye of the student as they create from a simple block, the end result will be a bust sculpture. Using a series of tools to assist, the student will mold, scrape, etch and peel away until the final result is revealed. (a materials fee of APPROXIMATELY $80.00 will be required at the beginning of the class, payable by cash to the Instructor. Due to the cost of air drying clay and tools, this fee MAY be lower as students may wish to share some tools or “borrow” from the Instructor. The Instructor will contact each student to determine the final fee)

Asset protection is no longer a luxury; it’s a must. Lawsuits are filed today in unprecedented numbers against individuals, businesses and professional practices. In fact, the average professional is likely to be sued at least once in his or her career. Simply put, you do not need to be rich to be sued, especially if you are in a high-risk situation or business. You also do not need to be sued to lose your assets – divorce, failed business ventures, economic instability, and personal and business bankruptcy all pose a threat to asset security. So how do you prepare for this sort of event? Attorney Brendan King will give you the tips and tricks you need to think about when considering asset protection.

If you are, STOP---at least for a short time each week, and join us where we will share and apply thought provoking ideas and terrific money saving tips to help S T R E T C H your household budget whether you're at the pharmacy, grocery store or enjoying an evening on the town.

We will also try to develop a clearer vision on clearance "deals" and work toward gathering free samples that can be distributed to class members at the course conclusion or "paid forward" to a community agency that may be in need.

Are you at a stage in your life where you are looking for a new, easier-to-maintain home and a different lifestyle? If you are seeking a community of your peers with planned recreational activities, amenities such as pools, exercise rooms, walking trails, libraries and more, safety and security, no yard work and other conveniences, you might be considering a 55+ community, also known as an active adult or retirement community. Retirement communities are homes or condominiums that are restricted to those over a certain age (often 55). They may be stand-alone or attached homes, cluster homes, apartments or mobile homes which may be bought or leased. This class can help you ask and answer the right questions.

This class will cover:
  • Advantages to downsizing to a 55+ community
  • Finding the right retirement fit for you
  • Community restrictions - pets, guests, paint colors, outdoor plants
  • “Politics” - how to tell if it is an effective and well-run community association, inclusion of new residents in community business
  • Land owners - developer or community, impact on rent/fees
  • Financial health of community association - maintenance paid with a sinking fund or large and frequent assessments, general maintenance upkeep, type and frequency of assessments
  • How to tell what growth is expected in your potential community and on adjacent property - density of the area in five or ten years
  • Neighbors, your potential social group - are they approachable, live in the community year-round or are they frequently gone?
  • Amenities and facilities - do you want them and will you use them?

Whatever your reasons for downsizing, this class will help you become knowledgeable so you can plan wisely.

Personal Computer Literacy - Part 1 (Introduction to the Personal Computer)

Location: Technical High Max Seats: 30
Weekday: Mondays Wednesdays Weeks: 4
This course combines lecture and “hands on” exercises to peel back the mystery of the personal computer and look inside to see what makes it “tick”. It is designed for the complete novice (we start with locating the “On/Off” button). You will learn what all those confusing techie terms and intimidating acronyms are all about so you can feel at home in front of your computer’s monitor - that’s the screen (see what I mean?). No prior computer knowledge or experience is necessary; however students are advised that a basic knowledge of the keyboard layout (as opposed to actual typing skill) is highly recommended. The course will cover the following subjects:
  • Hardware – the various boxes, buttons, cables/wires and connections that define the personal computer, and what part they play in the operation of this marvelous machine.
  • Software Part 1 – the Operating System (O/S), Microsoft Windows – the essential piece of software, which in may ways, is akin to the motor in your car, enabling the various hardware parts to “talk” to each other and control the other software components so they can operate without getting in each other’s way.
  • Software Part 2 - the “file cabinet” tool of the Operating System, Windows Explorer, that enables you to maintain a well organized system for saving (and finding) all the things (documents/files) that you create (or download to) your computer.
  • Software Part 3 – the Browser, Internet Explorer (IE) - the software you use - with the help of your Internet Service Provider (ISP) - to navigate the Internet, aka World Wide Web (WWW), the information and entertainment world that resides outside of your computer.
  • Software Part 4 – Email, Outlook Express – the wonderful way to “stay in touch” around the world within seconds, how to use it safely and avoid the dangers you may be exposed to, sending attachments, and more.

This course is the first of a 2-part sequence of Computer Literacy, and will provide you with a solid foundation for moving on to Part 2. There is a $10 cash fee due on the first night of class to cover all the materials you will receive throughout the course. Part 2 starts at the conclusion of this course and picks up where this one leaves off.
Personal Computer Literacy - Part 2 (Getting Stuff Done With Microsoft Office)
Instructor: Arthur Gerber

If you’re using your computer for email and surfing the net, and you’re in “fat city”, then this course is not for you. If, on the other hand, you understand that email and web surfing - as wonderful tech-tools as they are - are not skills that make you “computer literate”, then you’ve come to the right place. This course is the second of a 2-part sequence of Computer Literacy courses, and picks up where Part 1 ended. Students who have completed Part 1, or who have attained an equivalent level of literacy/knowledge elsewhere, will be prepared for this course.

This course covers the basics of the 3 primary software products included in Microsoft Office. MS Word, MS Excel, and MS PowerPoint. Since all the Microsoft Office software tools use a common User Interface (UI), we will start by examining the “ribbon” interface and learn how to use it.
  • With Microsoft Word, you will learn how to create, edit and print documents. We’ll start by providing you with a simple document to replicate, then learn to use many of the editing and formatting tools to re-shape it into a dramatically different looking document. You’ll see how we can take a “plain vanilla” document filled with typos, spelling errors and worse, and easily correct and turn it into a spell-perfect, graphic-embellished, impressive business letter (or event flyer, stationary letterhead, employment resume, or multi-column newsletter).
  • With Microsoft Excel, you will discover the wonderful versatility of this spreadsheet tool, from simple list management with sorting and filtering, to various business management documents, including the use of formulas (and even a basic function or two) that can turn mere numbers into sophisticated what-if scenarios to help with important decision-making, and more.
  • With Microsoft PowerPoint, you will learn how to create impressive slide presentations with motion and sound effects. You will see how you can parlay the skills you learned in the other MS Office software tools to come up to speed quickly with PowerPoint. In the last class, we will put much of these newly learned skills to use in a fun project creating a computer-based slide show that you will present to the class and be able to take home with you.

You will also see how these 3 independently-powerful pieces of software can be used in various combinations to augment the final product proving that the “whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.

The Job Loss Recovery Program

Are you unemployed and still struggling to land a job? Do you work hard on your job search but are getting nowhere fast? Do you get interviews, but no job offers? You want to be happily employed again… if you only knew how to make that happen!

It's possible that your mindset - not your job search methods... is what's holding you back. Many people who have lost their jobs have unresolved, negative emotional baggage about their experience. This unwanted mental energy, which is damaging to your self-confidence, will unconsciously and unfavorably come across during job interviews, contribute to poor interview performance and lead to ongoing failure to land a job.

Perhaps it's time to try a different approach: "The Job Loss Recovery Program" which uses a unique series of guided visualization techniques to help unemployed, dislocated workers land jobs quickly. In a published, peer-reviewed study, five times more people landed jobs within two months of listening to six guided visualization recordings compared to a placebo control group.

In the Job Loss Recovery Program course, the guided visualization recordings you'll listen to will help you:
  • Reach closure about unresolved emotional job loss issues
  • Reduce stress and resolve job loss distress
  • Avoid taking unwanted emotions into a job search
  • Build self-confidence
  • Tap into your inner wisdom
  • Improve interview performance, and
  • Get on-course to land the job of your choice!

Here's a sample of what you'll experience in class:
You'll relax mentally and emotionally, to resolve the heavy feelings associated with your job loss.
You'll also be mentally introduced to your most successful "Future Self."
You’ll mentally rehearse peak performance job interviews as well as create and interact with your "Inner Mentor" from whom you’ll feel unconditional support.
These experiences can help you develop your career dreams and access the wisdom inside you.

Class materials include handouts, questionnaires and access to downloadable links to the guided visualization recordings, plus optional, supplemental recordings.

If you're ready to overcome your job loss stress once and for all and land the job of your dreams, this course is for you!
