Learn & Grow From Home

Mara Hall, Lifelong Learning CoordinatorWelcome to the Fall 2020 edition of the Lifelong Learning catalog. This catalog is one of a kind in many ways. First is the beautiful design, layout and color copy you are holding in your hands or viewing online. I took a chance to approach this catalog in a different way. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Next you will see as you peruse the classes and workshops, almost everything will be held virtually via Zoom. In order to protect you, our wonderful, incredible learners, I cannot gather large groups of vulnerable populations in enclosed spaces with a clear conscience. I know you might be concerned about participating through an online platform. But I am here to help! I will gladly offer assistance in any way I can to help make you comfortable with learning, sharing and creating in his way. On the Zoom Into Lifelong Learning page there are “how to” login Zoom instructions for you to reference. Zoom sessions can also be attended via telephone with audio only. There is a plethora of instructions on Zoom’s website: support.zoom.us. But please, if you are worried, call or email me. I am here to help!

I am so excited about these classes. Many of them are “maker” oriented. You will receive a kit with almost all the things necessary for the class. Some of those classes include: Needle Felting, Crochet, Cake Decorating, Polymer Earring Making, Candle Making with Wax Buffalo, Modern Calligraphy, cheese making, and more! All of the instructors have taken time and energy to create an engaging, wonderful time for you to enjoy.

Though this semester will be different, I hope you will embrace the change. I hope that you are all staying safe and healthy! I miss seeing you in person, but I look forward to seeing you virtually.
