Community college courses at Cedarcrest

   Cascadia Community College, the newest community college in Washington, is offering more than 150 classes during its Spring 2000 Lifelong Learning program.

   The non-credit classes, which are offered at various dates, times, and locations through May 2000, cover topics such as art, computers, dance, crafts, food, hobbies, home improvement, languages, travel, and writing. Scheduled throughout the college service area, the classes are a result of partnerships with the Northshore School District, Northshore Senior Center, Evergreen Healthcare, Lake Washington Technical College, Lake Washington School District and Riverview School District.

   In the Riverview District, Cascadia is offering "Beginning Pottery" at Cedarcrest High School, 29000 NE 150th St., Duvall. The six-evening, non-credit class will be held Thursdays, April 20-May 25, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The class cost is $72 plus a $15 lab fee. In this class, students will learn the basics of pottery including: how to work with clay on the wheel, how to hand build clay, and how to work with various glazes.
