This fall, The Center for Continuing Education is offering 180 interesting, useful and just plain fun classes, including 49 brand new options. Registration for fall classes is underway.
“With most courses starting in late September and early October, I urge those who are interested to sign up by September 20 to reserve a place,” says Sandie Conner, Director of The Center. The fastest way to register is online at www.LMCCE.org. By-mail and in-person registration are also available.
Many of the most popular instructors are back to teach both new and favorite courses. Among them is Maria Valente, the owner of Chocolations, who will be teaching chocolate making at her Mamaroneck store. Mike DeGennaro will teach several film courses including “Woody Allen’s Female Muses in Film,” and Eric Jennings will continue to teach his popular opera course.
Three new trips are featured this fall: a September 24th tour of two sites in East Hampton considered art treasures; a food tasting “ramble” through two historic neighborhoods of New York City on October 17, and a visit to the Dia Beacon Museum and the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park on December 6 that includes a delicious 3-course lunch.
For the first time, The Center is offering online classes for those who prefer to learn at their own pace. “We are excited to partner with ed2go, the industry leader in online learning for adults. Classes are taken on a computer, offering our students a flexible and convenient way to learn,” says Ms. Conner.
The full catalog features a broad range of classes in computer training, writing and literature, art, fitness, cooking, foreign languages, and finance. In addition, SAT prep, GED prep and English as a Second Language are offered.
The catalog and registration information are on The Center’s web site: www.LMCCE.org . Students can also call (914) 698-9126 for more information.
Under the rubric, Take a Different Course, The Center for Continuing Education is lower Westchester’s premier adult education resource. It has been offering quality life-long learning opportunities at affordable prices to the community since 1973.
