The Arnoldsburg Lights On! program is pleased to announce four adult activities/classes beginning in January.
Computer Made Easy - 10 a.m., January 11 - Don't be afraid of that monster with the one big square eye and likes to carry a mouse around. We will teach you how to tame it! Four Saturday classes will take you from the simplest operations to surfing the net and beyond. This class is for beginners so don't worry if you've never used a computer before. The first class is scheduled for 11 January at 10 a.m. at Arnoldsburg School. Please register by January 7.
Beginner Quilting - 10 a.m., January 18 - Learn the basic skills to complete a quilt: rotary cutting, strip piecing, and chain piecing, how to assemble the quilt top, add borders, mark quilting lines, baste, hand quilting and binding. The Arnoldsburg's Site Council was impressed with the instructor's work and we're sure you will have a great time and learn how to make a quilt like an expert. Please register by January 9.
Mel Gibson Coming to Arnoldsburg? - Well, in a way. OK, it was a cheap way to get your attention. The title of this class is actually "Reading Hamlet." The activity is designed for adults and high school junior and seniors. You will prepare, read, and act out scenes from Shakespeare's Hamlet using the Alan Durband "side-by-side" text. Students will have fun comparing their own interpretations with those of Glenn Close, Mel Gibson (he will be here on the T.V.) and others in Franco Zetterellis's film of Hamlet. This class was held in Roane County and is really a lot of fun.
The first class is Thursday, January 16 at 6:30 p.m. Please register by January 10.
Mozart's "Cos Fan Tutte" and the Olive Garden -We continue our monthly cultural program with a January trip to an opera. Mozart's "Cosi Fan Tutte," is a comedy, and the good news is it's in English. We will stop at the Olive Garden at the Charleston Town Center (people may eat at another establishment in the area). Tickets and transportation are free (dinner will be on your own). An opera? Why not! Come and join us for a night on the town.
The bus leaves Arnoldsburg School on January 11, 2003 at 4:30 p.m. and the Minnora Community Center at 5:00 p.m. Dinner will be at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m. Please register by January 2.
