As registration moves along at a brisk pace for SMC Community Education’s hearty offerings in the Fall Session – which begins Sept. 2 – the program is giving a 10 percent discount on registration for all art classes until Aug. 15.
With 150 classes slated for fall, Community Ed is fine-tuning its offerings to reflect demand. For example, a Supervised-Play Bridge Club is being offered for the first time because of the dearth of local opportunities to play the popular card game, says Alice Meyering, Program Coordinator of Community & Contract Education.
“As always, we provide a rich selection of courses in many disciplines – from the arts and writing to fitness to professional training – but we are working with a keener eye to design new courses that meet our community’s needs,” Meyering said.
Other new classes include Property Management, The Business of Photography, and “Paint Anything.”
Aside from classes, workshops and tours, Community Ed offers an extensive collection of Professional Development courses that can lead to high-paying careers or advancement in current careers. It also provides a good selection of online classes – all at reasonable prices and free, plentiful parking.
