What's your creative outlet?
Creativity comes in many forms. Poetry is a form, sometimes with much freedom and sometimes with some guidelines like a Haiku. Creativity is often encouraged in our youth but as we age some jobs don't allow for creativity and the demands on our time don't allow for a creative outlet. And we need creative outlets!
The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center is all about enriching the lives of people through programs that feed the mind and soul. And while a portion of the ACC's programing is designed for people 50 years of age and older we offer numerous programs for a variety of ages. For your soul we offer Bob Ross Oil Painting classes, intended for those 12 years and older, and watercolor classes for those 18 and older.
If music is your passion we have private vocal, piano, guitar, bass, ukulele, drums and classical string lessons.
It is never too late to challenge your brain by learning a language; the center offers Spanish at all levels.
If you are more of a writer than a talker we have Memoir Writing, an opportunity to write your story, the story about the life that built you.
We also offer programs like the Living Well Talk Series, which spark conversation and deeper thoughts on topics such as sex, living to be 100 and marijuana use.
Consider taking a class at the LOACC for your creative outlet; it is good for your mind and soul.
The lunch menu this week features potato broccoli soup on Friday, April 5; Caribbean fish stew on Monday, April 8 and Swedish meatballs on Wednesday, April 10. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
The LOACC is located at 505 G Ave., Lake Oswego.
