Term 2 sees us continuing to offer a range of classes across the city at Risingholme Community Centre, Riccarton High School, Shirley Boys High School, Christchurch Girls High School and Hornby High School, many of which have become a tradition of Risingholme Community Centre programme. So as we settle into the winter months a great way to lift the winter spirits, is to enrol in a course of interest – maybe something that you have tried before and want to explore further or perhaps you would like to try something new. It has been proven that Lifelong Learning has many benefits with the obvious ones being the continuation of a learning journey, learning a new skill, increased confidence, meeting new people and much more. Our full range of classes can be viewed on our website New and exciting this term is Zentangle. What is this you might say - well if you can’t sit still enough for yoga, or your mind wanders in meditation, or you would like a creative aspect to your mindfulness, this may work for you. This method of drawing does not require any previous drawing ability, it can be a 15 minute practice you can build into your everyday, or you can explore some of the more creative ways you can then use this design practise to make your own cards, images, or decorate products. This class will teach you a variety of ‘tangles’ and get you started on your Zentangle path in a supportive and creative atmosphere, and you can build it at a pace that suits you, within your time constraints or desire as you move through the term. Creative writing is back by popular demand with beginners and a more advanced classes being offered for term 2. So if you have always wanted to write but don’t know what or how?
