Upcoming Workshops and Classes - Call Today to Register!

April 6, 2015:  Hunter Safety – Class is full!

April 7, 2015Movie Time! Instructor: Jeff Evans -- This class is designed to enhance your understanding of movies by learning how plot and different film techniques work together to create the finished story.  We will examine four full-length films: Psycho (horror), Stagecoach (western), Dr. Strangelove (comedy) and Chinatown (detective).  Film principles will be introduced by the instructor and then the class will proceed by screening and discussion.  (Students will need to have watched the films outside of class.)

April 8, 2015Transition Towns, or how to make it through the next few decades Instructor:  Iver Lofving -- Climate change, shifting energy practices, and global competition are redefining how we work and live in Central Maine.  A Transition Town has been established in Central Maine that will allow local residents to explore the possibilities of redefining the future through creative energy practices and increased reliance on local resources. This transition is already evident in the re- emergence of local agriculture and tourism. It is recommended that class participants read the “Transition Handbook” written by Rob Hopkins. It can be purchased from your favorite book seller: ISBN-13:978-0857842152

April 13, 2015Microsoft Powerpoint 2013Instructor:  Raelene Allen  -- PowerPoint is a powerful computer software program that enables you to create visually dynamic presentations.  With PowerPoint, you can create individual slides and display them as a slide show on your computer, a video projector, or over the Internet.  A professional-looking presentation will include formatted text and visual elements such as charts, graphics, and photographs in conjunction with text to help communicate the presentation message.  Visual elements keep the presentation interesting, illustrate concepts, and help an audience focus on what a presenter is saying.
