Living Arts Classes -General Information-
LIVING ARTS CLASSES are for recreational purposes only; you can learn a new skill, fine tune an old one, or simply keep in shape. There are no pressures, exams or grades-just relax and enjoy! Classes meet once or twice weekly throughout the day and evening. All Living Arts classes are open to UCSB students, faculty, staff, alumni, affiliates and community members.
CLASS FEES cover instructors' salaries, publicity, use of equipment and some class supplies. You may need to purchase additional supplies for individual projects. Students may watch first class at no cost. In order to participate, you must pay for class in full or pay $5 drop in fee to the night greeter. (checks only) Drop in fee option is only available at the first class session and will not be applied to the class fee should you decide to continue attending. Students may not pay on a class-by-class basis. Payment by cash, check or Visa/MasterCard – No BARC Billing. UCSB STUDENTS are eligible for a reduced fee for many courses. Please be aware that this discount is only available after you have paid your UCSB Registration/Tuition fees for the quarter. If you have not yet paid your tuition you will not show up in our system as eligible for the reduced rate. If this is the case, you should wait to register for the Leisure Review course, the price difference WILL NOT be refunded after the fact. HOLIDAYS have been taken into consideration and most class dates have been extended to provide make-up sessions. Classes do not meet July 4th or Sept. 1.

REFUNDS: There are no refunds except those granted at the discretion of the administrative supervisor during the first two weeks of each quarter, should medical or other extenuating circumstances dictate.

Come have fun in the sun or simply cool off by the pool this summer at UCSB. The Recreation Center is open to the greater Santa Barbara community for summer memberships. A family of four can purchase a summer pass to the Recreation Center for less than a day spent at Disneyland. A mere 15-minute drive from downtown brings you to the most beautiful pools in Santa Barbara, featuring a hot tub spa, shallow water pool, 25yd pool, a 50 x 25 meter pool and a diving well with 3 diving boards. The Recreation Department also offers an array of water programs designed for all ages and interests: •Summer Day Camp participants enjoy daily visits to the pool as part of an actionpacked day. •Surf & Kayak Camp offers children a playful day at the beach learning to surf, kayak and engage in environmental education. •Junior Lifeguards, are you up for the challenge? This program is open to 8-17 year-olds who are ready to work their bodies and minds in the ocean and sand gaining skills in first aid and water safety. •Our swim lesson program has topnotch instructors. Group lessons are age and level dependent. •Want to stay fit but tired of swimming laps? Water Fitness is a challenging class, set to music and is suitable for participants of all fitness levels. •Interested in SCUBA or Kayaking? Check out our instructional classes. • Looking for a water adventure at your own pace? Surfboard and SUP rentals are available through the Adventure Rental Center. We hope to see you in and around the water this summer!

Kayak Adventure Center Ocean kayaking is an ideal sport for the Santa Barbara area. The beautiful natural vistas, the kelp beds rich in marine life, and the south facing beaches offer opportunities from idyllic protected coastal excursions to kayak surfing at point breaks and paddlers can find secluded beaches close to many accessible launching sites. While touring the local coast, paddlers usually see a variety of sea life. Curious seals and sea lions pop their heads up to spy on the slender boats as they glide quietly through the water. Dolphin and whales have occasionally been spotted during our outings.
Our staff to student ratio allows personal attention and effective instruction. The kayak day tours and extended tours are a great way to practice your skills, meet other paddlers, and explore the beautiful marine environment. The UCSB Adventure Programs combined the most popular parts of past classes to create the all new Kayak Adventure Center! Kayak classes, trips, and clinics provide the skills, fun, and fitness you asked for and deserve. This Quarter we’re offering Levels I and II, with more exciting Adventure classes each week. Each class includes a Kayak Adventure Card to ‘show what you know’ and to demonstrate you’re ready for more advanced opportunities. Join us today for paddling skills and fun you won’t forget. Even better, register with some friends for shared memories that will last forever! KAYAK ADVENTURE BASICS, Level I Prerequisite: Ability to swim So you’ve paddled a kayak a few times, or not at all, and you’re ready to explore the wide world of kayaking in more depth. This is your class! Level I includes an evening in the UCSB pool and an open water day. In the warm pool you’ll practice fundamental skills, such as capsize recoveries, and then move on to skill building games. Your full day gives you a chance to explore the Santa Barbara coast in a unique way, and to polish your new skills in an open water environment. Level I is an introduction to Sea Kayaking. The class will include basic to intermediate maneuvering skills, basic surf zone techniques, kayak games, and efficient touring strategies based on student interest and marine conditions. This basic class provides an Adventure Card and is a prerequisite for many of our more advanced classes and trips, so get started now! The class fee includes instruction and kayaking equipment. Wet suits are required but not provided. WHITEWATER KAYAK ROLLING Prerequisite: Kayak Level I or equivalent; ability to swim. Rolling a kayak is a valuable skill essential for river kayaking and handy for ocean kayaking. After two evening sessions of instruction and practice in the pool you will be well on your way to mastering this fun and useful aspect of kayaking. A good brace is necessary for kayaking. Part of the rolling class will be spent learning and practicing your bracing skills. Remember, part of this class will be spent underwater (upside down) so a wetsuit is required but not included. We recommend that you bring a dive mask or goggles to make
the learning experience easier. The class fee includes instruction and kayaking equipment. SANTA BARBARA COASTAL KAYAK DAY TOUR Prerequisite: Ability to swim, prior paddling experience. Have you seen paddlers working their way down our coast and ever wondered how you could get out there with the seal lions and dolphins? Well, now is your chance. With our sit-on-top kayaks all you need is a desire to get on the ocean. We will meet at UCSB Campus Point, organize our gear, give a short lesson, and then get on the water. We will make our way down the coast stopping for lunch at one of the many beautiful beaches. Our final destination is the Santa Barbara Harbor. Fees include kayak equipment and safety gear, two guides and transportation back to UCSB. MOONLIGHT KAYAK PADDLE Prerequisite: Kayak Level I or equivalent; ability to swim. Imagine an early evening on Goleta Bay, water drips off the paddle breaking the reflections of the moon and the coastal lights of our seaside University above the bay. This is a paddle opportunity not to be missed. After a short skills lesson, we will put in close to Campus Point at sunset and enjoy a moonlit paddle. The class fee includes instruction and kayaking equipment. Wet suits are required and rental information about local rental retailers is available when you register for the class. PRIVATE KAYAKING INSTRUCTION by reservation only Can't fit one of our kayaking classes into your schedule? Has it been a while since you sat in a kayak and you're ready for a refresher at your own pace? Ready to move beyond the kayaking skills taught in our regularly scheduled classes? Have a specific trip or paddling skill you would like to focus on? These are some of the reasons people choose private kayaking instruction with us. This is an opportunity to significantly improve your current techniques and to add a whole new set of skills to your kayaking ‘bag-of-tricks'. Call us if you're ready to take the next step in a lifetime of learning from the cockpit of a kayak! The fee includes instruction and kayaking equipment. Wetsuits are required.
