     Michael Maday received his A.S. Degree in Telecommunications Technology from Napa
     Valley College in 1988 and his Bachelor’s Degree at UC Berkeley in the Practice of Art.
     Approaching video as an alternative to film, he sought to enrich his art background while at
     NVC with classes in painting, printmaking, art history and later, ceramics. Ceramics became a
     passion and artistic focus. By 1994 a distinctive style of mixed-clay ceramic work was emerg-
     ing in the form of his ongoing “Spirited Bottle” series: hand-built sculptural vessels of various
     size and form designed for salt-firing and characterized by flowing organic textural patterns
     and multi-colored tectonic surfaces. Long interested in natural materials, recent sculptural
     works explore the use of scrap and found-stone (granite-marble-slate) in the making of non-
     traditional free-standing architectural sculptures he calls “Chronoliths”. Michael loves working
     with clay and is eager to share new ideas with his students.

As you choose a computer class, please consider …
     • All computer classes require some basic typing skills.
     • If you do not know how to type, we suggest that you take the credit class
       CISA 170, Keyboarding 1, Part 1.
     • If you have no prior experience with computers, take the “Introduction to IBM
       PC’s with Windows” class first.
     • All IBM classes include a textbook for your use in class, which you get to keep
       when class is finished.
     • One-day classes take a 1-hour break for lunch.
     • We use Windows NT and Office 2000, but if you have Office 97 or Windows
       95 on your home or office computer, our instruction and materials will work
       for you as well.

Downshifting of the Brain – Gear Up for Success!
The mass of tissue inside your bony skull known as “the brain” really consists of several functional layers. These brain layers
can be compared to gears in a vehicle. When the going gets tough the vehicle downshifts automatically to help you get through.
In situations of trauma, crisis, or any type of fear, the brain downshifts in an attempt to access functions that promote safety.
While this is a helpful strategy, it can be very deleterious when activated frequently or when sustained over thme. The outcomes
can range from failure to learn to relapse into addictive behaviors.

This seminar is designed to increase your understanding of the downshifting phenomenon in the brain, and explains the conse-
quences of existing in a downshifted state for any prolonged period of time. At work or at home, communication can be derailed
if either the sender or the receiver (or both) are downshifted. Strategies to help you identify downshifting in a timely manner are
included, along with suggestions for ways to promote upshifting and for communicating congruently with someone who is in a
downshifted state.

To Grieve is to Heal
In general, our culture has taught us how to acquire but not how to lose. This is especially true when it comes to grieving losses.
It is vitally important to recognize that there can be a vast difference between the grieving process in preparation for oone’s
own death and the grief-recovery process for survivors of loss. The Kubler-Ross work has been landmark in helping individu-
als prepare to die with dignity. The Grief Recovery Pyramid, on the other hand, is designed to help survivors successfully move
through a grief-recovery process.

This seminar is designed to present strategies for identifying, grieving, and moving beyond our losses. The goal is to retain our
memories without the sting of the emotional pain. It requires tremendous amounts of energy to keep grief and loss “walled off”;
energy that we need to have available to use for successful everyday living. Includees the Grief Recovery Pyramid.

The Science of staging—creating ambiance that sells...
Ruthanne Hatfield, is the owner of Art of Interior Placemen. You can reach her toll-free at 1-877-441-
2844 or on the web at She has been featured on HGTV’s Decorating
Cents, in Solano Magazine, and the Napa Valley Register.

Hatfield feels that before you can “romance” a potential buyer to make you an offer on your home,
its curb appeal must be inviting, and any photos and virtual tours must showcase the home and its’
potential. A house only has one opportunity to make a good first impression. When buyers are actually
looking at your home, think of it like “speed dating”—you have only seconds in which to convince a
buyer to keep checking out the possibilities. Once a negative reaction has occurred, the “date is over!”
Although buyers start house-hunting logically, they get hooked for emotional reasons – believing that
living there will improve their lives, and unconsciously they are thinking they will have more...prestige, popularity, smarter chil-
dren, a healthier lifestyle, more travel time, an improved love life, etc. Staging optimizes space, defines traffic flow, minimizes
flaws and appeals to the emotions of buyers. However, really effective staging is geared toward the woman, since it is she who
must fall in love. Romancing her includes the placement of props which will convey the “life improving” qualities buyers seek.
Statistically, staged homes sell faster and for more money. Agents also like to show their buyers staged homes, which ensure
more showings. and those just thinking of putting their home on the market will benefit from this seminar.

Creative Writing: A Fiction Writing Workshop
Ana Manwaring teaches Fiction Writing in Petaluma and is revising her first novel. Her short stories “I Do” and “Chu-
pacabra” have won awards. She has recently published in Vintage Voices: A Sonoma County Writers’ Club Harvest and
her haiku has been aired on KCRB radio’s Morning Haiku. She works with several writing groups.

Course description: Don’t put off those writing projects. We’ll warm up with a short writing exercise and share our thoughts
on the craft of writing. Next we’ll read from our own work and discuss our discoveries, obstacles, and breakthroughts, a con-
structive and supportive round table. Beginners and seasoned writers are welcome. Creative nonfiction writers are welcome,
too. For more information: (LARN 650)

Summer is the time for play. The season of bursting creativity is upon us. Grab notebook and pen. Bring along those fictive
elements, poetic images, or memorable life experiences and come face-to-paper with them. See what’s in the spaces between
the lines…

This class will explore creative writing techniques in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Students will work with initial story or es-
say ideas on through the drafting, editing, revising, and presenting stages of the creative-writing process. Special focus will be
on shaping detail to show desired emotions and on experimentations with dialogue. Classroom activities will involve in-class
writing exercises and workshops. All writing is honored; the classroom is a safe place to experiment, to discover your own
unique way of expression. Being in command of your language gives you motivation and confidence. . (LARN 650)

entry-level employees to supervisors to owners, all with the goal to improve both our area’s labor force and the experience
that guests of the Valley receive. This Summer the NVC Hospitality Institute will be offering the following trainings:

HIS: Food & Beverage Cost Control
Problems with food cost are a major reason for a restaurant’s
difficulty attaining profitability. Percentages lost in cost of
goods are directly taken away from the restaurant’s “bottom
line.” This workshop offers templates and direction on how
to evaluate food cost issues in terms of product costing, in-
ventory tracking and control. It also addresses purchasing,
portioning, waste, and internal theft. Participants leave with
a thorough system to allow them to evaluate and impact
issues within their own restaurant.
