LULING—The St. Charles school system is set to present a full slate of courses as part of its fall community education program.

While many of the courses are geared toward learning arts and related skills, others aim to improve the quality of life of the area’s residents.

Among the art-based curriculum for the fall are classes in painting, sculpting, cooking, dance, music, photography, sewing and gardening. Classes in this category generally range from beginner to advance levels, so children are welcome in many of them, and some are tailored for a younger demographic.

Besides these, the community education program offers a variety of computer and business and financial classes for those seeking employment or just looking to pad their resumes. These courses, with names such as “Becoming Gainfully Employed” and “Market Swings Do Not Have to Limit Your Dreams,” may be of particular interest in these tough economic times.

The location and cost as well as frequency differ depending on the course. More information on the program in general as well as a full list of the courses being offered and enrollment information is available at Classes are open to residents of St. Charles and surrounding parishes.

The deadline to enroll is Aug. 31.
