Class Schedule 

At this time, our schedule below remains the same.  We are changing our May and June classes to remote learning (using zoom).

We have received very positive reviews from participants using zoom:

"I was very pleasantly surprised that online learning can be as engaging as in person, especially for this 55 year old life long learning lover.  Zoom was again easy to use and did not detract from the learning at all." 

"The online version using Zoom was EXCELLENT. Very impressed with how well you all adapted, I feel like I learned a lot, was very engaged, and the time went by very fast."
