Welcome to Continuing Education! Falling Back Since 1970 Summertime in Seattle often means heading outdoors to enjoy the longer, sunny days. With fall coming, it’s a good time to consider indoor pursuits. Though we may be inclined to withdraw to more comfortable confines as the days grow shorter and darker, our curiosity and creativity are far from flagging. Are you looking to learn something new or improve a skill in the community of supportive, like-minded people? Fall back into a routine with Continuing Education and rest assured you’ll have our unqualified seasonal support.

It was a very relaxed and engaging environment. People could work at their own pace and everyone tried to help each other. The teacher did a great job of showing you what to do, but not doing it for you. She was very patient and explained things well. We learned a lot and feel she covered many of the skills needed to do a future upholstery project. She had the materials and tools organized well. – Sheryl K. on Intermediate Upholstery with Anna Gregory

Taught by a veteran canine advisor, this two-part interactive course will teach you to read your dog’s nonverbal language and accurately interpret their thoughts and feelings. During the first session, we’ll decode canine language by applying it to photos and videos. In week two, we’ll meet at a dog park and eavesdrop on what the dogs are saying to each other. By the end of this course you’ll have new insights and tools to create a closer connection with your furry friends. NOTE: Both meetings are for humans only. Please keep your dog at home. 7177 10/21/2017 - 10/28/2017 10:00AM - 1:00PM 2 ses Sa Engelberg On Campus: CC Bldg Room 3450 $79

This fall we will explore the themes of deception and related skullduggery. First off we’ll burrow into Universal’s classic, The Mole People, (1959) starring John Agar and Hugh Beaumont as luckless archeologists who stumble upon a colony of giant, spade-foot creatures only to discover their human masters are the true monsters. Then it’s William Castle cult-favorite, Homicidal (1961), which starts with a woman stabbing a justice of the peace and ends in one twisted identity crisis. This film promised so terrifying a conclusion, it featured a 45-second “fright break” and a coward’s right to refund. After that we jump back in time with The Yesterday Machine (1963) where Tim Holt (The Treasure of Sierra Madre) is sent to Nazi Germany by a former Third Reich scientist to change the outcome of WWII. We then explore former radio drama Inner Sanctum’s movie franchise with Pillow of Death (1946) starring Lon Chaney, Jr. and Brenda Joyce about a philandering attorney accused of murdering his wife and taunted by her voice from beyond the grave. We close with Terror in the Jungle (1968), surely one of filmdom’s most glorious messes. This foundling-child-turned-White God-by-discombobulated-jungletribe tale was filmed in Griffith Park, Hollywood and Peru by two different directors, both of whom quit. A third director completed the project by inserting random scenes from a forgotten 1940’s jungle film. 7122 10/19/2017 - 11/16/2017 7:00 - 9:00PM 5 ses Th Hopkins On Campus: LB Bldg Room 1131 $79
