In fact, the fee is based on each student having access to all three classes each Wednesday.

The goal of Education Encore, Barr said, is to provide a learning environment that is fun, lively and offers diversity, insight and wisdom in which adults explore new ideas. 

If you have been to college, Barr said, this is an opportunity to re-live the college experience. If you have not attended college, this is an opportunity to live the college experience. 

“Just as exercising the body keeps one physically fit—exercising the mind keeps one mentally fit,” he added.

The courses offered at the Gulf/Franklin Center include basic computer skills, digital camera, drawing, writing, chair yoga, marine biology, “Dare to Repair”, acrylic painting and conversational Spanish, among others.

The fee for participants is $66 for the six-week program, which includes three classes on each of the six Wednesdays.
