It’s been a long, snowy winter, but spring is here and summer is on its way! Community Education at Western Wyoming Community College is offering several upcoming classes that can help folks achieve their summer fitness goals or learn fun new hobbies that perfectly complement summer exploration!
Outdoor Digital Photography workshops will help those looking to take better outdoor pictures by addressing lighting, composition and camera set-up. Students will travel together to various outdoor locations throughout Sweetwater County and will have ample time and opportunity for practice and instructor feedback. A DSLR camera and basic knowledge of camera functions are required for this course.
Two workshops are available: Saturday, April 16, from 6 a.m. – 2 p.m., and Saturday, May 21, from 6 a.m. – 2 p.m. Students will meet at the Rock Springs campus. Cost is $40 per workshop
Martial Arts/Self Defense is offered for kids and adults ages 5 and up. By developing self-defense skills, students will improve range of motion, balance and awareness while building confidence. Lessons will be tailored to each student’s ability.
Classes will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings beginning the week of April 18. Students are welcome to sign up for a four-week class or a 12-week class. Times and prices depend on students’ ages.
Archaeology is a great reason to get outside! Associate Professor of Anthropology and Geology Dana Pertermann, Ph.D., will teach students the basic tools and techniques of archaeology as she leads them through a dig site in Fort Bridger. Students will get their hands dirty on this trip while delving into the history of our area!
Overnight camping is required as part of this course, and students must provide their own camping equipment. This trip is offered twice: on Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30, and on Friday, May 6, and Saturday, May 7. Students will leave Rock Springs at 2 p.m. on Friday and arrive back on campus by 7 p.m. on Saturday. One dinner and one lunch are included in the cost of the class, which is $85 per weekend.
