Mommy and Me Sing
03/23/15
Sioux City

Mommy and Me Sing: Making harmony at home A music class for parents and children (age two through pre-K) This brand-new class has been created especially for the younger generation. Come for the fun and stay for the education. All children are musical! They are born with an aptitude for music; this will diminish though, if it's not nurtured in the first nine years of life. According to leading early-childhood researcher Dr. Edwin E. Gordon, musical aptitude is in a developmental stage from birth to age nine. While a child can certainly learn musical skills such as fingerings, breathing, and note reading after age nine, how musical a person he or she is - how attuned his or her sense of pitch and rhythm is - is set for life by age nine. Gordon says the most effective way to nurture a child's tonal and rhythmic aptitude is to provide them with a rich environment of singing and moving. During weekly classes children and their caregiver(s) will participate in activities such as: Singing simple songs continuous movement Steady beat activities Playing simple instruments Rhymes and finger plays Tonal and rhythm patterns Your friendly instructor is Amanda Vande Zande, a mother of two and a music instructor at Western Iowa Tech. One child per registered adult.

Shooting People Portraits
03/26/15
Sioux City

Photographing people is easy. Put them in sunlight and shoot. Simple. But creating people portraits is not always so simple. Should they sit or stand, will the photo be taken indoors or outside, or will you use available light, flash or a combination of both? During this five-week course, the class will explore different ways of shooting people portraits, both in a studio setting and on location including environmental portraits. You will learn about using flash and other light sources, appropriate methods of coaching people during a shoot, and other simple tricks to create better portraits. Details matter. The class will also study specific iconic portrait photographers, their images and their techniques. Students will need a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera or compact camera to shoot portraits during class, both on location at the WITCC campus and in the classroom. Students may also want to use a speedlite or off-camera flash. Equipment will not be provided. Instructor Jerry Mennenga has worked for various daily newspaper publications for over 25 years in Illinois, Texas, Louisiana, California and Iowa. He has covered a variety of photographic assignments at these various publications and has photographed portraits of different subjects in studio settings and on location many times.

Citizenship classes . Refugee Issues . Bilingual services to help with legal, medical and educational issues. Named to honor the unrelenting efforts of a legendary Sioux City immigrant pioneer Civil Rights activist, Mary Treglia, the Community House has been a vital and continuing force in the development of ethnically diverse Sioux City.

Photo Safari
04/18/15
Sioux City

"Sometimes when a person is out photographing there are too many choices, and at other times it seems there are not enough. This six-week class is all about taking photographs on location. Its purpose is to help a student ""see"" the possibilities of what to photograph and how to react in the moment. Students are expected to have a basic understanding of their camera for this class and be able to make exposures in the manual and aperture priority modes. Information for learning and understanding technical details of operating a camera is offered in the Making Better Photographs class. Rain or shine - or snow - four sessions of this class will be held outdoors so students can take photographs in natural settings. You'll discover it isn't always the prettiest or perfect subjects that make the best photographs. Often, inspiration can be found in things that are unusual or imperfectly formed. In the first session Jerry will go over basics of composition and lighting and general thoughts about photography. He will also outline the time and location plans for the next four sessions. This will be an opportunity for Jerry to gather e-mails and phone numbers of students so they can stay connected once the class starts meeting on location. Jerry will be present at each site to offer advice and guidance while students are photographing images that capture their attention. In the last session, students will deliver their chosen images of the four location shoots on a thumb drive for viewing by the entire class for discussion and appreciation. Classroom sessions will take place in the Advanced Sciences Building, Room L212 (Lot 4, Entrance #13). Digital single lens reflex (DSRL) cameras or compact cameras are necessary for this course. Students are responsible for supplying their own camera gear. Please see sidebar for class locations. Students are responsible for their own transportation. There will be walking involved so wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Jerry Mennenga has worked for various newspapers as a photojournalist for over 25 years. He has photographed in a variety of settings and situations and knows the value and pressure of producing images on deadline for publication. He has also learned to see beyond the obvious or to use it to make an interesting photograph of what lies before you."

Historic Buildings Downtown
04/24/15
Sioux City

"Lifelong Learning adventure will begin at the United Center Building that was constructed as a warehouse at 302 Jones Street in 1904. Today, the building is something new for Sioux City; it's a creation of residential lofts on the top three floors and built-out on the bottom three floors as Class A Commercial space. To add charm, renovations left many of the original brick walls and century-old timbers exposed. Dozens of windows were added to let natural light flow inside. The thought was that people would like living near the lively downtown historic district in a structure that preserved the original character of a warehouse. The 21 residential condos range from 850 to just under 2,000 square feet. Three of the condos are two-story lofts. A fitness center on the fourth floor and a roof garden complete the package. The condos offer an ""ease of living"" that's hard to find elsewhere. We will tour both the commercial space and visit one of the United Center's loft apartments. The tour will then proceed to 4th and Jackson at 700 4th Street to a building now known as Stifel-Nicolaus. Similar to the United Center, eighteen market-rates, upscale lofts were created on the upper three floors. All residential lofts are single story, offering both two or three bedrooms and two or 2.5 bathrooms. The units range in size from just over 1,200 to just over 1,500 square feet. The lofts feature breathtaking skyline views, granite counter tops, and soaring ceilings. Again, the group will tour this spectacular living space. The downtown architectural adventure will conclude with a delicious luncheon at La Trattoria Fresca. Our host will be Chef Israel Padilla, the 2014 Winner of Sioux City's ""Best Chef Auction."" "

Making Better Photographs
04/27/15
Sioux City

"In the digital age taking photographs is much easier than it used to be. But that doesn't mean we all take better photographs. In this class, you will learn from a professional photographer how to dramatically improve your technique. Making better photographs involves making the image more compelling through various techniques such as creative lighting, composition, and design elements. But most importantly, it is learning to ""see"" the image before pressing the shutter button. In this five-week course, you will explore various compositional design elements such as the rule of thirds, leading lines, the use of silhouettes, and seeing shapes and patterns. The class will also explore the use of filters and various types of available lighting to achieve certain effects, which can include shooting on bright sunlit days, cloudy overcast days, in open shade and on rainy days. The class will discuss using appropriate lenses for photographing certain types of images such as landscapes and portraiture. But, as always, rules are made to be broken. And breaking some of these rules during the class will be encouraged! Students will shoot photos to share with other class members in the next class meeting. These will be based on simple assignments from the instructor that will allow students to explore new photographic ideas. Instructor Jerry Mennenga has worked for various daily newspaper publications for over 25 years in Illinois, Texas, Louisiana, California and Iowa. He has covered a variety of photographic assignments at these various publications and continues to make photographs simply for the fun and joy of it. He creates images for a blog he writes, www.lostinsiouxland.com."

Mindfulness in Modern World
05/19/15
Sioux City

"Mindfulness in the modern world is back this spring! This class offers a wonderful, relaxing way to reduce stress and promote wellbeing, healthy-living and self-discovery. Just like the comedy TV program ""Seinfeld"" - which ostensibly was about ""nothing"" - Mindfulness in the Modern World expects that you do almost nothing, and yet something funny happens anyway! Imagine that; doing nothing, having fun and learning at the same time! We'll be learning ""mindfulness,"" which is the art of being in the moment to the extent that every thought, feeling and sense we experience stands out like an island of calm in a sea of chaos. Mindfulness is about recognizing, understanding, calming and appreciating your own inner-dialogue. In return, we can look at the fun we will definitely have in this class while reducing stress and the associated benefits such as; weight loss, increased focus and peace of mind, calmness in the face of adversity, reduced reactivity, lowered risk of heart disease, decreased anxiety, lowered divorce rates and improved relationships. The list endless.there is no list of the potential benefits of learning mindfulness. Teachers, police and emergency first responders, doctors, people with attention disorders and so many others all use mindfulness to deal with the vagaries of this modern world. Becoming aware of the workings of our own minds sounds impractical doesn't it? Who needs a course on that?! OK then, let's see how long you can sit still and hold one thought without becoming distracted in your mind. Put this down - go ahead and try - we'll wait. Was it 10, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, a minute? For most of us, the mind - our own minds - are like untamed stallions. Sometimes it's called a ""monkey mind"", jumping from anticipation to regret to worry to anxiety to guilt to joy in a matter of minutes. This inner dialogue is the fundamental basis for our outlook, emotions, self-esteem and reaction. But wait! If it's my mind, why can't I find the pause button? What if there is a ""pause"" button that none of your teachers or parents ever told you about as they worked to increase all the neurotransmitters and mental skills you developed in becoming who you are now? Mindfulness is that button. This class promises you a calming and fun environment, sitting with others, socializing and uncovering this simple gem of mindfulness, discovering where your life is really happening all along. "

Palisades State Park
05/21/15
Sioux City

"Join Lifelong Learning on an excursion to one of the most beautiful places in Eastern South Dakota, the Palisades State Park in Garretson. The Palisades is a small state park, but it packs a big punch visually that more than makes up for its size. The park credits its beauty to the 1.2 billion-year-old, 50-foot high quartzite rock cliffs and spires that flank the rushing waters of Split Rock Creek. In addition to the visual attraction of the rock formations, they offer some of the best rock climbing in South Dakota. Moreover, canoe enthusiasts and kayakers enjoy paddling through the quartzite spires of Split Rock Creek. The park is one of the few places in the U.S. that contains catlinite. Also called pipestone, it is used by Native Americans for making peace pipes, or ""calumets."" One of our stops in the Palisades Park is a place called Devil's Gulch, where Jesse James made his famous leap. According to legend, after James robbed a bank in Northfield, Minnesota, he hid in a cave in Split Rock Creek. When he thought the coast was clear to leave the area, he was surprised to find a posse of lawmen right behind him. A chase began, but he was able to elude the posse by spurring his horse on and leaping across the canyon at Devil's Gulch. Today a walk bridge crosses the canyon of James' leap. We leave the Palisades and, if time permits, we'll visit Oren Sorensen's International Harvester museum, located across the road from the Palisades entrance. After that, we'll stop for lunch at Annie's Coffeehouse for some fine food in a homey atmosphere. After lunch there will be time to visit the Treasure Chest, a store that has a bit of everything, including antiques, collectibles, consignment items, and a lot of new merchandise. It's a unique store and a must-see when you're in Garretson. We'll leave Garretson and head to Tucker's Walk Vineyard for our final stop. Tucker's Walk grows cold-hardy grapes to make their wine. After a leisurely visit, we'll leave Tucker's Walk and begin our trip back to Sioux City."
