Here are just a few classes we are looking forward to in March and early April:

Introduction to Qigong and Tai Chi – Lavada Smith

Tuesday, March 22 and Thursday, March 24

This class covers a brief history of Qigong and Tai Chi. The class focus is relaxation and recovery of flexibility of joints and improving balance. Movements involve fluid movements of arms and legs, coordinated with breath and focus on balance. For ease of movement wear loose-fitting clothing. Usually exercises are done without shoes for better balance. Movements can be done sitting or standing.

Migrants at the Gates of Europe – Milan Reban

Monday, April 4

Huge streams of humanity are challenging Europe and testing the European Union’s capability as the individual countries vary in their approaches to immigration. We will examine the realities within Europe but also the factors beyond Europe such as the impact of former colonial powers and the U.S. What are the outcomes in this tragedy?

Improving Our Digital Photography – John Worley

Wednesday, April 6 and Wednesday, April 13

Why are some of our photos so disappointing? Photography is both an art and a science. It is the science of capturing the image that we think we see and the art of capturing the image we want to see. First we need to understand what we think we see. Starting with photo pairs showing “What You See” and “What You Get,” the class briefly leads you through some of the most common photography problems caused by trusting what you think you see. Then we tackle the primary areas of your camera that affect your final image: the color of the light, perspective (foreground vs. background), depth of field and shutter speed. We introduce some simple photo editing concepts for your PC.
