Adult Learners Thrive at Alverno College

June 7, 2012

Outdoor meditation, Spanish language, acrylic portrait painting and aromas of wine are just a few of the topics explored in upcoming continuing education courses at Alverno College.

Alverno’s community education program, Telesis, is open to both women and men. Non-credit Telesis classes engage the mind, body and spirit through a broad range of topics and subject areas. The full listing can be viewed on-line at www.alverno.edu/telesis, or call for a brochure: 414-382-6200.

Award-winning floral designer Miki Herman will share tips and techniques in her demonstration, “Nature Finds: Bringing the Outdoors In,” while chemist Ray Scolavino celebrates Wisconsin’s microbreweries with discussion and tasting on July 17.

Special this summer is a cultural history class with Ko-Thi founder, Ferne Caulker-Bronson, entitled “African Dance and Diaspora.” Caulker-Bronson will explore historic and aesthetic connections between Africa, the Diaspora and Black dance in America through discussions, videos and music.
