RCC offering landscape painting, line dancing classes

ASHEBORO (Oct. 21, 2019)

Have you ever seen a landscape of fall colors so inspiring, you wanted to pick up a paintbrush? Or have you ever wanted to learn how to two-step? You can do both at Randolph Community College.

The “Painting the Landscape in Oils and Acrylic” course, taught by Henry Bowers, gives beginning and intermediate students the opportunity to develop drawing and painting skills in the studio. Classes will include hands-on exercises with lectures in design, color theory, and marketing.

Bowers, who was recognized as the 2013 North Carolina Historian of the Year for his efforts in historical preservation, has been painting for his entire adult life. He has studied with several nationally-recognized painters including Ellena Basa and John Seerey-Lester. Bowers’ goal is to save the ever-changing historical North Carolina landscape for future generations through his paintings.

The class (#72070) meets from 6-8 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, Oct. 29-Dec. 3 in room 122 of the Administration/Education Building on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $70.55.

If you are looking for a fun, low-impact exercise activity, RCC is offering a “Line Dancing” class, beginning Thursday, Nov. 7. Dancing for an hour equals an average of 2,000 steps and 75 calories burned.

In the class (#71463) — which will meet from 6-8 p.m. on Thursdays, Nov. 7-Dec. 19 — students will get moving to some of today’s biggest music hits and learn to move with confidence and stay fit while having fun. Students will learn several line dances including “The Wobble” and the “Cupid Shuffle.” This course is for any and all, beginners to advanced dancers.

The class will meet in the gymnasium in the J.W. “Willie” Plummer Vocational/Technical Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $30.55.
