More Variety Added to Community Education

CONWAY, AR—New spring community education courses are being offered to the public through University of Central Arkansas’ Division of Outreach and Community Engagement. Thirteen classes have been added to the spring course offerings, which are scheduled to begin mid-February.

“Community Education is more than reading, writing and arithmetic. It’s a cluster of courses designed to enrich the lives of the residents in Faulkner County,” says Lawana Hawkins, Coordinator of Community Education at UCA.
Community Education offers lifelong learning opportunities designed to meet a variety of needs and interests in the areas of business, arts, lifestyle and leisure, and technology.

Five classes have been added in the area of arts and communication: Ceramic Clay Handbuilding: “Dinner for Two”, Charcoal Drawing for Beginners, Pencil Portrait 1, Mirror Design Art with Jimmy McDonald and Introduction to Film Studies and Film History.

A three-part series in homeopathic stress remedies offers individuals healthy strategies for dealing with emotional stress.

Additional classes new this spring include Self-Hypnosis for Self-Help, Understanding Your Medicare and Life Insurance Plan, Entrepreneurship: Becoming a Businessperson, Introduction to Computer Programming Using Python, and Mixed Level Yoga.

Community education courses are open to the public and are non-credit classes. Most classes are held on the campus of UCA and range in course fee.

Registration for spring courses is now open and interested participants can register online at or by calling (501) 450-5811. Selected courses qualify for the Early Bird Discount, which ends February 8th.
