HCE Classes that may be held at Laney, Winter 2014

 Writing Whirl

Add shape and flair to your writing in four two-hour sessions with exercises (exercise is good for you!) in language rhythms, audience identification, rewrites and edits, and precise language choice.  Enhance your abilities in writing story, memoir or blog.

Massage for Couples: Nurturing Massage

You are massaging the shoulders of someone you care for and you can feel the tension melting away under your hands.  As you breathe deep you feel your confidence grow by the minute.  Accepting guidance from the experienced workshop leader, you are finding a new connection with your nurturing capabilities.  When your turn to receive comes, you have a new-found trust in yourself and the person massaging your shoulders.  And your shoulders will become happier by the minute.  Bring your loved one and discover a new way to show your tenderness.  Only one person of the couple should register but both should come to class.  Two weeks, two hours a week.

Self-Massage for Stress Reduction

Everyone experiences tension, that nagging pain that just shows up.  You will learn how to skillfully relieve the pain and tension in your shoulders and arms.  By the end of the two-hour class you will be smiling with new skills and relaxation.

Web Editing: HTML

Create and edit simple web pages with hyperlinks, graphics and colors using HTML5, the new standard.  While HTML5 is still a work in progress, the latest releases of the major browsers (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and IE) now support many of the new HTML5 elements.  The previous version, HTML 4.01, came out in 1999 and the web has changed a lot since then.  This is an introductory class that will focus on semantics (main structural blocks) and basic phrasing content (using styles) in an HTML5 web page in four two-hour sessions.  Students should have some previous computer experience.  Henry Community Education suggests bringing a flash drive to class for saving files.

Also possible, space permitting:  Zumba, Yoga, Hip Hop Dance
