For some time some of us here in Malibu have been asking that the Emeritus College (senior unit of Santa Monica College) offer classes here in Malibu, and at last the college is offering three classes at the Community Center. One is a watercolor course. It will be on Tuesdays, 4 to 6:20 p.m. The instructor is the well-qualified art teacher Katherine James. On Tuesdays the college offers two classes: Romantic Poetry at 10 a.m. and Principles of Acting at noon. These classes will be taught by Bill Robertson, who is highly recommended by the students who have taken his classes in Santa Monica.
The classes started last week but enrollment is still open. The classes are free. It is expected that most students will be over 55 years of age, but the instructors will not check an individual’s birth certificate. These are noncredit classes, no grades or pressure, just a wonderful opportunity to learn.
The important thing is for us Malibuites to take advantage of this opportunity if we want the college to provide classes here in Malibu! We’ll see you in class — Room 17 at the Community Center.
