“Eleven years ago, I moved from Colombia with simple concepts in English. I started to work and at the same time I was raising my kids. I had to wait for many years to go back to school. I decided to take classes at UNLV, that was the best decision I made. I met a wonderful teacher, Barbara Lander, with an incredible passion for her profession. She taught us grammar, vocabulary, and how to apply these concepts in our real lives. Thank you Barbara! You are the best, and people like you make a difference in my life.� Ana Seldana ESL Student 2

What they’re saying about Alice Whitfield: “I took Alice’s class for the fun of it, and to push myself out of my comfort zone. It was a great experience, adding to my professional speaking skills and reigniting my passion for performance. I continued coaching from Alice and rely on her input and direction. She definitely knows her craft and is quick to provide honest, effective feedback. Don’t take direction from anyone less than a true professional--that would be Alice!” Maria Marinakis

Acting, Photo & Film RADIO & TV VOICE-OVER WORKSHOP If radio and TV commercial voice-overs were that easy, more people would be doing them. If you are serious about finding out if you have what it takes to make it in this lucrative and highly competitive industry, this course is for you. Contrary to what you might think, voice-over has very little to do with your voice! It’s being able to read a script and make it sound like you’re not reading. This four-week course is not for the faint of heart. It is conducted and taught exactly the way the business runs in the real world. FYI: There is a huge difference between local and national level of voice-over performers. So, to give yourself the best opportunity of competing in any of the voice-over markets (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and all regions in between), it is important to learn the business from someone who is in it on a national level. Your instructor is one of the most sought-after voice-over coaches for many top New York and Hollywood celebrities. She frequently commutes between Las Vegas and Los Angeles to coach

stars such as King of Queens co-star Leah Remini, among many others. Her book, Take It From The Top!, is suggested reading for this course.

BIRDING AND NATURAL HISTORY ALONG THE UPPER MUDDY RIVER VALLEY The upper Moapa River Valley is a little-visited but ecologically important area of Southern Nevada. Conservation interest in this area has been highlighted by the recent establishment of the Warm Springs Natural Area adjacent to the Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was established in 1979 as the first National Wildlife Refuge to secure habitat for an endangered fish, the Moapa dace. This small fish is only found in the headwaters of the Muddy River. The Warm Springs Natural Area, owned by the Southern Nevada Water Authority, is home to a wide variety of fish, birds and other species. The 1,218-acre Natural Area provides a habitat for birds such as the southwestern willow flycatcher, yellow-billed cuckoo and vermillion flycatcher. Led by birding expert Scott Page and assisted by SNWA biologist David Syzdek, we will explore, studying the springs, pools, and streams on the refuge, and traversing sections of the natural area looking for migratory and breeding birds. Gain a better understanding of the relationships among land use, hydrology and conservation biology in this interesting area. Expect to walk up to three miles, often over uneven terrain. Bring binoculars, field guides, lunch and water; wear sturdy footwear and sun protection.

IN THE PLANNING STAGES: ANTARCTIC TRIP - WINTER 2012 A visit to the mysterious and vast Antarctica is a visit to the very ends of the earth. This land of glittering ice, majestic peaks and dazzling beauty, has for millions of years, been a haven for migratory birds, whales, seals and other marine mammals who come each summer to feast in is food-rich coastal waters. We will be visiting during the Antarctic summer (our winter) when temperatures are mild, generally hovering just above freezing. Your UNLV trip leaders both have extensive experience in the Antarctic. UNLV geologist, Margaret Rees, Ph.D., was funded by the National Science Foundation to conduct scientific research in the Transantarctic Mountains for eight field seasons. She has been awarded the US Congressional Polar Medal for Scientific Service in Antarctica and to honor her for her exceptional service an Antarctic mountain was named after her. Nevada artist and naturalist Sharon K. Schafer has worked extensively in the Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic Islands as an artist-in-residence, photographer and videographer. Her paintings and photographs of the Antarctic region have been exhibited in museums across the country.

CREATIVE ORGANIZATION FOR “PILERS” You’ve heard about all the advantages to getting your life, your work and your space organized. You make resolutions to finally get everything in its proper place. Yet the “mess” continues to defy any of your attempts to “clean up.” The problem is not you, the problem is that most of the ways we are told to organize were designed by organizing nuts. Their minds are methodical and organizing comes natural to them. Your mind simply won’t work that way! They tell you to file, your mind wants to pile. They tell you to throw almost everything away, you want to keep everything. Instead, learn how to take control of the mess. Learn techniques that are ideally suited for those who hate filing, who can’t keep one of those fancy organizer notebooks organized. Let’s face it, you hate spending time on this organizing stuff. Your workspace will look better, and you’ll be more efficient without turning into one of those “wound too tight” types.

MOCIDADE REBELDE (UNLV BRAZILIAN ENSEMBLE) Mocidade Rebelde is a drumming ensemble that focuses specifically on the percussion music of Brazil.

This is how percussionists in the “batteria escolas” (drumming schools) have traditionally been taught in Brazil. Absolute beginners through professional drummers and percussionists are welcome. This is a fun and exciting ensemble to work with, energetically stimulating and therapeutic for those who would like to release some stress. All we ask is that you bring a good attitude and enthusiasm to the group. All instruments are provided. Your instructor is Kurt Rasmussen, a respected percussionist for many world and Latin music artists, percussionist for the Cirque Du Soleil show “O” and member of the Vai Vai escola in Brazil.

But you don’t have to be an actor; the only requirements are enthusiasm and a desire to share. Your instructor is a member of the Nevada Storytelling Guild, Las Vegas Chapter. This new class is suitable for adults of any age and children over 12.

NEW – I HAVE A STORY TO TELL: WRITING YOUR PERSONAL STORY

NEW – HORTICULTURE THERAPY “I will never smell a lilac without remembering walking to my childhood home’s back door underneath a trellis that was weighed down with lilac blooms cascading in midair, swinging like aromatic bells from their slender stems. The fragrance of lilac connects me to the essence of home. Vertical connections thread the past with the present and can penetrate the moment.” (Wydra, 1997, p.7) Horticultural therapy is a creative approach to helping people feel better by improving their quality of life. Many have born witness to the pleasurable benefits of convening with nature by means of the garden. A garden brings the colors, scents and sounds of nature to our doorstep in the most accessible way. This class can be adapted to meet the needs of any group from the senior population: from caregivers to those in need of care. A Horticultural therapy course can benefit seniors who are facing illness, as well as seniors who are facing the stresses of daily life through hands-on activities and lectures. This class is also for those who simply enjoy being outdoors and want to learn more about horticultural therapy. Activities may include: planting seeds, pressed flower note cards, lavender or rose petal sachets, making bouquets, chia pets, aromatherapy pots, compost balls and pruning.

Educational Outreach will not reimburse students for the cost of travel or lodging in the unlikely event that a class is cancelled. Therefore, it is recommended that students traveling to attend classes make travel reservations that are able to be changed, should it become necessary to do so. • Educational Outreach will make all reasonable attempts to notify students of class cancellations or changes, using e-mail, phone, and fax contact information provided by the student at the time of registration.
