CLEARFIELD – Interested in learning something new? The Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc., in collaboration with Lock Haven University Clearfield, announces an upcoming educational seminar offered through the Clearfield Community Life-long Learning Institute.
Courses are geared towards the interests of the baby boomers and older citizens. Typical sessions will last approximately 90 minutes and will be taught primarily by Lock Haven University faculty and community individuals with specific expertise. All programs will be free, or very low cost.
Painting with Pastels:
In this workshop, participants will be lead step-by-step through a painting experience with an emphasis on pastels. Participants will explore several basic techniques, get a feel for the medium and leave with a complete work of art.
The workshop will be held at the Liddle Gallery in downtown Clearfield on May 2. The presenter is Sherry Appleton, a local artist that has been creating art and teaching pastels classes for many years.
This class is currently full.
Emergency Preparedness 101:
Emergency workers will help after a disaster strikes, but they may not be able to reach everyone right away. That is why it is so important to be ready to survive on your own for at least three days during an emergency.
This may mean having another place to stay, extra food, water, first aid and other basic needs. People cannot control natural disasters, emergencies or terrorist attacks but can be ready for them and know what to do to take care of loved ones and ourselves.
This course will help you become better prepared by learning about: different kinds of emergencies, how to create emergency plans and kits for your home, automobile and workplace and how to plan ahead if you have a special need.
People can join presenter Daniel Spencer of Planning Office, Clearfield County Department of Emergency Services, on May 18, at the Lock Haven University – Clearfield’s Academic Building from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
The seminar is offered at no charge but pre-registration is required. Register by calling the CCAAA at 814-765-2696.
The Clearfield County Life-long Learning Institute has seminars scheduled through June. For a complete listing of classes, please visit the agency’s Web site at www.ccaaa.net or www.lhup.edu/clearfield and click on the “Life-long Learning Institute” link.
Programs and services of the agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc., Mature Resources Foundation and local and consumer contributions.
