Highland offers Lifelong Learning courses at Apple Canyon Lake

Highland Community College Lifelong Learning is offering a Tai Chi and Basic Digital Photography course at the Apple Canyon Lake Clubhouse this summer.

The Tai Chi course will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, August 2 and Tuesday, Aug. 9. The cost for this course is $20. Instructor, Greg Strickler Poe, has held these classes at Apple Canyon Lake since 2010. He has practiced martial arts for the past 30 years and earned his black belt in 1980. He studied Tai Kwon Do for 12 years under Korean Master Sung Yung Kim. He is a member of the Tai Chi for Health Community and also teaches Tai Chi for people with arthritis.

There will also be a Basic Digital Photography class from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays from July 13 through July 27 at the Apple Canyon Lake Clubhouse. The cost for this course is $109.

Taught by Gary Gullett, this action-packed class will show you how to create and care for interesting digital photos. It will cover the basics of digital photography. Students will learn elements of exposure control, photographing people, close-up, action, and low-light photography. Time will also be spent on the "how to" of sharing images and storing photos. Bring a camera and gain the confidence needed to take great photos time and again.

The vision of Highland's Lifelong Learning is to serve all populations throughout the College’s four-county district, including community members, seniors, and the region’s business professionals.
