In partnership with the Council of Adult Education, we are delighted to provide the Art classes to the Positive Living Centre. Whether you’re a novice, expert or in between, this initiative will develop your skills in a supportive environment, with the support of award winning artist, Mia Schoen. This course builds capacity for personal arts practice by identifying individual student needs and is a pathway for further study in accredited visual arts training.
Grow, Cook & Go
A basic cooking course based around developing explicit skills including planning, shopping for, preparing and cooking simple, nutritious meals. Alongside this cooking course is the management/growing of a vegetable/herb garden. Participants will plan and research types of seeds and seedlings to be grown, learn about growing plants from cuttings, suitable plants for a specific garden, composting and harvesting.
One hour class designed to stretch and tone your entire body, with a focus on core control, limb strength and balance. Run by the physio team from the Alfred Hospital.
