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, 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.

Alverno College is located at 3400 South 43rd Street, convenient to major roads, I-894 and I-43. Parking is free. For more information on Telesis classes, visit or call (414) 382-6200.
