FRIDAY CLASSES

ASCENSION LUTHERAN CHURCH

9:00 AM

501      iPAD USES, APPLICATIONS, AND TOOLS:  So many of us purchase an iPad and never really know how to use it.  If you are only checking your email, it’s time to attend this informative class.  Nancy Armes will tailor the class to some of your suggestions.  Topics include keeping information safe, adding and deleting apps, and what does iCloud do for me.  You must have an iPad to bring to class.  Class is limited to 15.

502      TRIVIA:  You asked, and we brought back this exciting game!  Teams will have a great time trying to remember songs from their youth (distant past), and try to answer trivia questions on travel, geography, history, current events, literature, etc.  Want to have great fun, laugh, be challenged, and rewarded, then come join the game.  Longtime trivia student, Maryann Risi debuts as the interim Trivia moderator.  She brings new material that will surely stump you.

503     DIGITAL PAINTING WITH iPAD: Nancy Williamson will teach this new and rewarding course. This class is especially for beginners who would like to create amazing paintings.  No previous drawing or painting skills required.  You must have an Apple Pencil and an iPad that is compatible with the Apple Pencil.  See information below for iPads that are compatible with the Apple Pencil and the “Procreate App” which must be downloaded to your iPad before the first class. Make sure Procreate is supported on your particular iPad before attempting to download.  The App is available in the Apple App store ($9.98). As a special inducement to take this course, Shepherd’s Center will credit you $10.00 on next term’s registration fee.  There may be other stylus that can be used with the iPad; however, they may not work with the app, or the results may be unsatisfactory.  Questions about requirements?  Contact me at nwilliamson9@cfl.rr.com. These are the paintings the class will do this term. (click here).       

10:00 AM

601     THE AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR:  This session will look at the events that shocked the world as the Thirteen Colonies defeated the super European power of Eighteenth Century England.  We will discuss the events leading to the war, the important leaders of both sides, the major battles, and the outcome.  Bill Ross, a retired history teacher of forty years, will be the instructor for the class.

 

 

602      HAVING FUN COOKING WITH ROSI:  Be one of the twenty people who get accepted for this class.  Due to the small size of the kitchen, registration is limited.  Rosi Oberlaender has traveled all over the world and has accumulated many delightful recipes and culinary tidbits along her journeys.  Rosi’s cooking talents are renowned locally and she is willing to cook for us and share her recipes.

603      LOCAL, STATE, AND NATIONAL CURRENT EVENTS:  As a former history and civics teacher, as well as a championship Florida high school football coach, Mike Vogt blitzes the classroom with his arsenal of knowledge about local, state, and national events that shapes the week.  He will begin the class discussing beachside current events and moving on to state and national news.  Occasionally Mike will detour off on that dreaded p-word (politics).  Class participation is highly encouraged!

604     BEGINNING LINE DANCING:  Join Vicki Little & Lenora Corbett as they, once again, leads us in fun and exercise with Line Dancing.  This is a class for both the beginner and the experienced since Vicki introduces something new each week.  One of the joys of Line Dancing is it requires no partner, so come join the fun of this low impact exercise.  This term, Lenora Corbett will be substituting for Vicki as she recovers from knee surgery.

 

605      CREATIVE WRITING:  Stephanie Andrews returns with her fascinating session on how to improve your writing skills.  Stephanie is more than qualified to lead this class.  She has been past president of Seaside Poets, author of first published book, “Memories of Wine & Poetry,” scriptwriter-cast Pigeons Picasso, Associate-John Campbell School, Associate-Atlantic Center for the Arts, and other literary activities.  Join her class to partner with other writers, stretch, search, and solve the reason of words.

 

11:00 AM

 

701      GAMES PEOPLE PLAY:  Come on down!  Our new moderator for games, Gina Latimer & Margaret Moore will conduct this three-ring circus of games.  Rummikub, Dominoes and cards are some of the games from our past times that can once again be enjoyed.  Do not delay since class size is limited and it fills up quickly.  Come join the fun - let’s do it again!

 

702    MAHJONGG FOR BEGINNERS:  Mahjongg is a tile-based game that originated in China during the Qing Dynasty.  It is commonly played with four players, and is a game of skill, strategy, calculation and involves a degree of chance.  Judy Carr will be the instructor for this limited size class.

703      CIRCLE OF LIFE: NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE:  While most adults know about death, we don’t understand it, and as Baby Boomers, many are looking to understand this next phase beyond living - its opposite: death!  This class is going to explore these seemingly opposite topics: dying/living and death/healing.  These ideas are presented by Candance B. Drake, M.Ed., who has experienced a Near Death Experience coupled with years of reading, listening, asking questions, meditating, and writing about this subject.  Join Candy for this informative new course.

704     CONVERSATIONAL SPANISH - The Friday Edition:  Señora Manuela Vasey debuts as our newest Spanish teacher for Fridays.  She will assess your level of proficiency and begin teaching by having you talking, reading, and writing Latin-American Spanish.  Spanish has become the second language of many Americans especially here in Florida; some knowledge is almost mandatory.  You have an opportunity to learn this beautiful language from a native of Ecuador.  Manuela suggests purchasing Spanish Made Simple. Copies will be made available in class at a discounted rate. 

12:00 NOON

 

801     LINE DANCING – INTERMEDIATE:  This class is mainly for those folks with skill levels well above “Beginners.”  However, Vicki Little & Lenora Corbett wants you to know all are welcome.  This session takes the joy of Line Dancing to another level with our resident “pro” Vicki, leading the way.  Come join us and have FUN!  This session, Lenora Corbett will be substituting for Vicki as she is recovering from knee surgery.
