Sesser residents have an interesting selection of courses to choose from this spring courtesy of the Rend Lake College Community Education Department.
Participants can create the shape, tone and definition they have always wanted with “Callanetics,” to be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from Feb. 6 through March 15. Each session will meet from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Callanetics’ isolated movements lift, shape and tone the body. Students will learn exercises to flatten their stomachs, reduce hips, eliminate saddle bags, tighten inner thighs, firm the chin and improve posture and strength. The class costs $36.
“Kids in the Kitchen” is back again. Participants will bake and paste their way through four special holidays. The various themes and dates are: Valentine’s Day, Friday, Feb. 10; St. Patrick’s Day, Friday, March 10; Easter, Wednesday, April 12; and Mother’s Day, Friday, May 5. Each class meets from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and costs $14. Students must be eight years of age or older or accompanied by an adult.
Join in with the first Friday evening “scrappin’ and stampin’ event in Sesser with “Sesser Scramp,” set for 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24. Participants will bring their own supplies and projects to work on for a six-hour fun fest. Not only will they have this large block of uninterrupted stamp or scrap time, but also demonstrators will be available with special projects, product displays and ideas to share. Dinner and snacks will be provided, and students are asked to bring beverages. The cost is $12.
All of these classes will be held at the Sesser Community Building.
A credit class, Introduction to Psychology, will be offered on Thursday evenings at Sesser-Valier High School this spring. Adult GED classes also are available beginning Jan. 9.
