Registration begins Saturday, Jan. 29.
Registration for spring semester adult education courses offered by the Baltimore Free University will be held during two "meet the instructors" brunches from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 29, and Sunday, Jan. 30, at The Village Learning Place, 2521 St. Paul St. in Baltimore. For more information, call 410- 516-4777.
The registration session will provide an opportunity for enrollees to learn more about the informal non-degree-granting adult education program and its course offerings. Students will also have the chance to meet their instructors, many of whom live in the community or are doctoral candidates, professors and students at Johns Hopkins or alumni of the university.
The Baltimore Free University features a wide array of personal enrichment, social issues and practical trade courses for a nominal registration fee of $10 per course.
Twelve courses are on the spring schedule so far, with more to be added before registration begins. They include a singing class for beginners, relaxation through massage, ballroom dancing, an astronomy workshop, a film series and public speaking. The number of class sessions varies from one-time workshops to courses that meet once a week for several weeks.
Classes begin in early February and end in mid-April; actual start and end dates vary by course. Classes will be held in various buildings on the university's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St.; the Village Learning Place; SEIU Union Hall at 611 N. Eutaw St.; and Wydeye Cafe at 1704 Aliceanna St. For more information, call 410-516-4777.
