The summer may be winding down, but the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Kennesaw State University always has something exciting to explore for people ages 50 and older.
“It is hard to believe, but many school-age children head back to school Wednesday. For them, it is the start of a new year, and in many ways it is the same for our students here at the College of Continuing and Professional Education. It is the perfect time to try something new and get back into a regular rou-tine,” said Michelle Girage, Assistant Director of OLLI.
Class start dates and titles are: August 1, Digital Photography – Intro-duction, Open Studio and Watercolor with Pen & Ink; August 6, Let’s Begin With Computers; August 7, Introduction to PCs; August 8, Mem-oir Writing; August 13, Calligraphy – the Art of Beautiful Writing and Retirement and Social Security; August 14, OLLI Beading for Beginners; August 20, Instant Piano and Internet and Email Savvy; August 23, Re-tirement – All about Change; and August 30, Solving the Retirement Puzzle and Spanish I – Conversational.
Highlights this month include Let’s Begin With Computers with Instruc-tor Lynne Mock. This class goes over all the basics you will need as you embark on building your knowledge of how to use your computer. An-other opportunity, Open Studio with Instructor Betty Carr, is sure to be a lot of fun. Students will enjoy the tutelage of an experienced professional artist while working on a two-dimensional medium of their choice.
Celebrate all your achievements on August 31 when you attend the OLLI End of Summer Luau. The event will be from 6-9 p.m. and tickets are $10 per person. Reservations are required.
