The Four Rs - Recharging, Reinforcing, Rejuvenating, and Recreating II

Join us for six weeks of joy, recharging, and even profound, meaningful inspiration.  To paraphrase author Benjamin Hoff, discover, or rediscover, the simple, childlike, and mysterious secret known to some: life is fun!  This is a positive, life -affirming course with themes ranging from creativity to reflection for growth.  As a bonus, part of each class will include suggestions for a wide variety of interesting and exciting projects participants can do on their own, if they so desire. 

Twentieth Century Western Art

We will discuss major trends in painting, sculpture, photography, and architecture in Western Europe and North America from 1900-2000.  While our focus will be on the artworks, we will also touch on relevant political, social, and cultural trends.  In addition to sharing his own views, the instructor will invite students to express ideas and opinions based on their own knowledge and experiences.

Lawn Bowling

Lawn bowling is popular in most English-speaking countries.  A three-pound bowl with a built-in bias is rolled 80-100 feet on grass to its target. The game is competitive, social, and provides physical exercise.  You’ll learn the rules of lawn bowling and how to use the equipment, with lots of hands-on practice.  Equipment will be provided by the Asheville Lawn Bowling Club.  The first class will be at the Reuter Center; subsequent classes will be at Carrier Park (Amboy Road and Michigan Avenue in West Asheville).
