Carroll Lutheran Village to Launch Lifelong Learning Program with PBS Documentary Producer
Carroll Lutheran Village will begin the New Year with a new program to provide lifelong learning opportunities to older adults in Carroll County. The winter 2013 series of programs include art, yoga, swimming, and Spanish classes; monthly topical discussions via a national facilitated webinar with a local facilitator for additional discussion; art and music appreciation; and presentations on sleep, weight, and spirituality.
A kickoff event will be held on January 9 at 6:30 in Krug Chapel Auditorium at Carroll Lutheran Village featuring keynote speaker Leo Eaton, producer of the PBS documentary Arts and the Mind, who will talk about the impact of the visual arts on the human brain across our lifetime. The film can be previewed in advance of the discussion at www.pbs.org/program/arts-mind/. Representatives from the community organizations partnering with Carroll Lutheran Village to support and provide instruction for the various programs will be present.
The Lifelong Learning 2013 curriculum was developed as part of the Carroll Lutheran Village wellness initiative in partnership with the Carroll County Arts Council, Carroll Community College, Carroll County Public Library, Carroll Hospital Center, Historical Society of Carroll County, McDaniel College and the Partnership for a Healthier Carroll County.
The events and classes are either free or low cost and open to all older adults in the community. Registration is required for all sessions. A complete schedule of events is available on the Carroll Lutheran Village web site at www.clvillage.org under Lifelong Learning or by calling 443-605-1070.
