Are you too busy to take a course? Well, why not take a course in Time Management through the Nova Scotia Community College. Hurry, the one-day workshop is happening on June 20 and will teach students things such as how to save up to one hour per day of time, overcome procrastination and learn prioritization techniques.
If you're interested in learning sign language, the NSCC also offers a beginner level American Sign Language course. Students will learn how to introduce themselves, exchange personal information and give directions and more. The weekday course starts June 22 and runs into July. There are also more advanced sign language courses that students can take at a later date.
Since 1887, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design has offered non-credit studio courses for the adult general public. Introductory Drawing is one of the courses currently available. The class starts with students doing a self-portrait and moving on to other exercises, such as sketching a portrait from a tiny photo and enlarging it and work involving a live model. Students finish by doing another self-portrait to see how they've progressed.
If you're looking to put your pen and paper to a different sort of use, consider the War, Peace and Technology class at Mount Saint Vincent University. The course is described as "an analysis of the nature and roots of war preparations including American, Russian and Middle East foreign policies and political cultures, plus the extent and consequences of arms production and sales. Topics include the peace movement and UN strategies and alternatives to war and regional arms buildup." Non-degree students can audit the class, meaning they don't have to complete assignments or write exams. Plus, it's half the price to take the course that way.
Little Mysteries Books offers a one-night seminar on June 23 called The Magic of Stones & Crystals: Part One. Students will work with and create a set of nine stones for healing, chakra work, meditation, divination, magic and more.
