Our Classes

Painting Club

$5

with Marilyn Rogers-Bull

Calendar Sep 9, 2019 at 5 pm, runs for 10 weeks

This is not a beginner’s class. It is for those who have painted in the past or present and would like to join others who love to share their love of painting. Painters are encouraged to use any medium they might choose. Marilyn uses oils and watercolors mostly, but if you prefer another kind, that is fine also. We would love to have you join us!

A few words from Marilyn – I am not a teacher; have only had a few lessons myself. But…Many years ago while walking on a beach in Florida, I dreamed up the idea of having a class at Skowhegan Adult Ed for those who might love to paint as much as I do. I went to the Skowhegan Adult Ed office and made a deal with them; that if they would let me have a room once a week for such an idea (and since I’m not a teacher) I shouldn’t be paid. It is such a blessing and I have found some wonderful friends, many of whom can paint much better than I can.

Photoshop - Independent Study & Projects

$38

with Lynn Perry

Calendar Sep 9, 2019 at 3:30 pm, runs for 10 weeks

Photoshop students from the Adult Education Photoshop II class will continue this fall in a ten-week, “Photoshop Independent Study and Projects” format. Students who have studied together for several semesters will meet to continue their projects: photo enhancement for lighting, color and size; adding artistic elements with filters, text and framing. Other who have been using Photoshop Elements or Photoshop are welcome to join the group for project support. The goal of this independent study is to create a place for group sharing, support and experimentation, but not for traditional instruction. The class will not meet on October 14 (Columbus Day), November 11th (Veteran's Day) and November 25th (Thanksgiving Break).

 

Pilates Mat

$30

with Petra Prokopova

Calendar Sep 11, 2019 at 5:30 pm, runs for 10 weeks

Don't work out 'hard', work out 'smart', fits the Pilates approach of teaching well-designed whole body exercises. The aim of the exercises is to use mental focus to gain a deeper understanding of your body and its movement- an insight that many of us have lost or never developed. 'Bringing your mind into your body' is a way to allow for a deeper rejuvenation and growth of your mind, body and spirit. The many physical benefits include increased core strength and core stability, deeper continuous breath, improved posture, and an overall increase in strength, flexibility, and range of motion. You may even find out that you grew taller as the cue of lengthening the spine is one of the most frequently given! I offer many modifications so that people from the Introductory through Intermediate levels can benefit to the fullest.

Please bring a thick exercise/yoga mat for adequate cushioning of the spine or other tender points.
