The Davis Adult and Continuing Education School’s spring quarter begins Monday, but there is still time to sign up. This quarter offers new classes and returning favorites.

Looking to cook healthy home meals? Instructor Dominique Blanchard will teach a class in Ethnic Vegetarian Cooking, which Blanchard describes as a “globe-trotting cooking class that will lead you through flavors from Greece, Italy, France, Thailand, India and Morocco,” and teach participants how to make dishes like moussaka, red curry with pumpkin, gratin dauphinois and more.

Classes in arts and crafts are always popular, and the spring offerings include Basic Sewing Skills, Creating with Polymer Clay for Beginners, Creative Mosaic, Drawing, Oil Painting and Expressive Workshop. There’s also an open workshop class that will teach participants how to use woodworking tools.

Classes in computers and photography are also popular, and this spring there will be instruction in Digital Imaging, MS Excel and Website Design (both beginning and intermediate).

Another class is The Buck Stops Here, focusing on personal finance for budget management and planning.

Students also may improve their fitness and health with classes like ballroom dance, hapkido (an eclectic Korean martial art), Pilates, tai chi, yoga and Zumba.

Planning a summer trip abroad? World language classes this spring include Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.

There are also practical hands-on classes in auto mechanics, bike repair and welding.

And musicians who want to develop their skills can enroll in the Davis Community Folk Orchestra, a weekly class that welcomes musicians of all skill levels.

“Spring is a great time to learn a new skill and get your mind and body in shape for summer adventures,” said Principal Grace Sauser. “And if you’ve never taken a class with us before, you should check out our offerings because we’re always adding new classes and we might have just what you need to get a jump-start on your learning goals.”

Students may register online at http://dace.djusd.net, or in person on Monday at the school office at Oak Avenue and East 14th Street. Registration also may be done by phone on Monday; call 530-757-5380.

Classes are fee-based, and the fee varies depending on the length and complexity of the course. Many classes fall somewhere in the $50 to $100 range. Spring quarter classes continue through June 5.

Parents with students in grades K-12 also may want to consider signing up their children for the Davis Adult and Continuing Education School’s popular summer enrichment classes, which will be offered in sessions to be held June 16-26, July 7-17 and July 21-24. The deadline for registration is May 15. Visit http://dace.djusd.net for more information.
