Community education classes offered by Center for Regional Programs

May 1, 2009 -- Summer@State has never been so much fun. The Center for Regional Programs, directed by Dean Verlene Ringgenberg, is now offering new activities for the community--a selection of special interest classes and workshops specifically designed for a variety of ages. With hand-picked courses like Acrylic Painting, Digital Photography and Chess for Beginners, Computing for Seniors, Growing an Herb or Vegetable Garden, Acting for the Community Theater, Spanish for Medical Professionals, Green Living, and Organic Skin Care, it’s easy to learn something new, start a hobby or just have some fun. The Summer Schedule ( is posted and has a wide range of development and fun activities for kids and adults. Youth can also enjoy summer classes like Computerama!, Mixed Media Art and Herbology. Special courses will be added continuously or can be requested and offered on demand, based upon student participation, availability of instructors and facilities.

The new Community Education program is designed to be responsive to the population’s interests to create short, non-credit courses that individuals in Jonesboro and surrounding areas would like to see offered. Course additions can be as creative and expressive to learning as the community can imagine, and in an unusual way, course additions can reveal the character of the community by the areas of interest it chooses.

Have an idea for a class or think you know of a potential instructor?  If so, you are encouraged to submit an e-mail to Evone Roberts, coordinator of community education, ( with your idea, or request a course proposal to develop an idea for a class. Schedules are available from the Center for Regional Programs, Smith Hall, Suite  410, or register online. For more information or to register and pay with a credit card by phone, call (870) 972- 3052.
