The Charleston Academy for Lifelong Learning, which is part of the College of Charleston's Center for Creative Retirement, is offering a four-week Summer Term during the month of June (6/3 to 6/26).
Light summer courses include Hands-On Aerodynamics (paper airplanes and kites, anyone?), Hitchcock films, Photography tips from shooting to framing, T'ai Chi Basics and more.
A self-professed political junkie will facilitate a discussion of the week's news and one of the center's most prolific writers is offering a writer's workshop. There will also be a two-session mini-course (June 6 & 13) on the Barnes Museum and "The Art of the Steal." Dr. Alfred Barnes died leaving a collection valued at $25 billion. This is the story of what transpired in the wake of his death.
