From page A3 | March 15, 2012 |

Spring quarter classes at the Davis Adult School start Monday, and many of the most popular classes still have a few seats available.

Art teacher Gay Huntley will offer three classes, in Creative Mosaic, Drawing and Printing with Acrylics. These classes give adults a hands-on opportunity to create works of art under the guidance of a thoughtful and experienced instructor. Each class meets one evening a week at Davis High School.

The Adult School also has an array of courses in computers and digital photography. These include courses in widely used software packages like Adobe InDesign, Excel, Adobe Photoshop and MS Office, as well as courses in how to get the most out of a digital camera, and how to design a website.

Fitness and health classes have long been mainstays at the Davis Adult School, and the spring offerings include classes in Pilates, tai chi, qiqong, yoga and zumba. These courses meet at different locations around town, including Davis High, Holmes Junior High, Montgomery Elementary and Korematsu Elementary schools. Prospective students often can find a course that is offered close to their home.

Courses in world languages are also popular at the Adult School. Spring offerings include Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish, with classes meeting at Davis High School.

Other courses of interest include practical instruction like auto mechanics, bike repair, English pronunciation and SAT preparation.

Musicians may want to check out the Davis Community Folk Orchestra course, which meets on Thursday evenings at King High School.

And older adults may want to register for the memoirs classes offered at the Davis Senior Center, with sections meeting on Thursday and Friday mornings.

Students seeking to master English as a second language also can sign up for daytime or evening classes. There is also a citizenship class for those preparing for the federal INS examination.

Information about Davis Adult School classes is available online at www.djusd.k12.ca.us/adultschool. The Adult School office also can be reached by phone at (530) 757-5380.

Brochures are available at the Adult School office, which is housed in a portable building on the southwest corner of the Davis High School campus, at Oak Avenue and 14th Street.

The Davis Adult School is part of the Davis Joint Unified School District, and courses are supported by tuition payments. Many courses have tuition in the $45 to $90 range, depending on how often they meet and the amount of materials needed in class.
