OLLI Spring Registration Set for January 30

OLLI spring registration is set for Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018.

The “Spring Fling Sign-Up” for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Casper College will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 30 with both online and in-person registration.

Those who became members by January 22 will receive a registration time in the mail. For those who do not get a registration time, or who plan to join OLLI when they register, they may come to the Chapman Lobby, located in the Walter H. Nolte Gateway Center, to join and/or register between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m.

This year’s spring offerings include both returning favorites and new topics. A total of 55 offerings have been put together and include classes held during the day and evening, as well as classes involving travel.

“Suminagashi Water Marbling,” OLLI 2050, will teach participants suminagashi, or floating ink, which is an ancient process of marbling plain paper with ink to transform it into a vibrant, colorful work of art. Leah Ritz with The Science Zone will teach the class.

“Do Not Be a Victim: Defense Tactics for Boomers,” OLLI 3060, will present tactics for participants to be able to cope with situations that can require them to defend themselves.

“Clara Brown: Angel of the Rockies,” OLLI 7030, will feature the filmmaker of the award-winning documentary about Clara Brown, an enslaved woman freed in 1856 who made her way to Colorado where she made a small fortune, as well as a screening of the documentary.

Returning favorites include two movie classes: “Women in Film: 1940s” and “Silver Screen Masters of Costume Design," with special guest presenter Carol Chapman; four meditative drawing classes: “Ancient Inspirations,” “Art Deco Inspirations,” “Inspirations from the Ringling,” and “Tangled Orchid Garden;” “Be Smarter than Your iPad/iPhone I” and “Be Smarter than Your iPad/iPhone II;” “French Film Friday;” and “Mastering the ‘New’ Medicare Maze.”
