Whether you like to cook or enjoy gardening, you can find a class that’s just right for you at nine convenient locations around the parish.

Listed below is the highlighted class of the week.

Digital Photography SLRs - In this seven-week class, two-hours per week, students will learn a wide variety of skills. Bring you SLR digital camera in addition to the camera’s user’s manual.

Students will explore lighting, color, texture, shutter speed, composition and other subject matters to achieve a solid foundation in both technical and creative photographic processes both inside and outside of school.
