     Michael Maday received his A.S. Degree in Telecommunications
     Technology from Napa Valley College in 1988. 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 emerging 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-tradi-
     tional free-standing architectural sculptures he calls “Chronoliths”. Michael loves working
     with clay and is eager to share new ideas with his students. He currently is completing a
     Bachelor’s Degree at UC Berkeley in the Practice of Art.

     and fused). Her bold abstract paintings have been exhibited nationally. She has been the
     recipient of many awards and has been included in many publications. Mary is currently
     a member of the Advisory Board of the Sonoma Museum of Visual Art.


     Encaustic painting
     Once a totally obsolete technique, encaustic painting is now recognized both for its exquisite
     beauty and incredible versatility. A beeswax paint that is kept molten on a heated palette, is
     applied to a surface and reheated in order to fuse the paint. Come learn this beautiful ancient
     technique suitable for collage and mixed media. Pre-registration required.

     Kathleen Nelson has worked as a graphic designer for over 20 years. For the past
     eleven, she has co-owned a design business, Nelson Sobel Design, and last year started
     K. Studios , a custom floor mat business. Her vast graphics background has enabled her
     to combine high-tech computer knowledge with old-fashion design translation techniques
     when designing and creating floor mats.
     Learn to create from beginning to end, custom hand-painted floor mats. More functional
     than rugs (chairs slide, spills wipe-up) floor mats are designed specifically for any room or
     function. Perfect on hardwood, tile or vinyl, these mats can be tailored to any size or shape
     to fit long entries, turn corners or even mirror oval tables. Unlike floor cloths, which are
     painted on canvas, floor mats are painted on the backside of vinyl flooring and protected with
     polyurethane to make a durable end product. This class will not only cover the process but
     include computer, stencil, sponge, stamp and design transfer techniques. The first half of the
     class will be instruction, the second a workshop with each student given general materials
     to create a pre-polyurethane small 16 x 24” mat. Enroll and learn to create functional floor
     art – Color from the floor up! Pre-registration required.

Writing for “Lovers”
Theresa Meyer, is an experienced teacher who enjoys seeing others grow in their appreciation
of themselves, as well as share their giftedness. She is currently a student herself, working on
a second Master’s Degree.

Do you know that the word “amateur” comes from the Latin word for lover?

This class is for amateurs (lovers) of the written word who like (or would like) to express their
thoughts on paper in creative ways. Whether you are just beginning to feel your way as a writer
or have had previous experience, come and explore the unique person you are through guided
writing in a supportive setting.

Bring with you to class your love of life-of travel, of art in its myriad forms, of nature, of family
and friends, of other cultures, of any aspect of human experience – and express it in brief written
compositions called reflection pieces.

Reflection pieces begin with an inspiration, such as reminiscence, a memorable line from litera-
ture, a musical selection, a natural setting, or an image – and they express the writer’s thoughts,
feelings, beliefs, or aspirations with regard to a theme which has personal meaning. Reflection
pieces can serve as springboards to many types of writing – persuasive or expository; storytelling
or memoir; prose, poetry, or drama.

Quest for meaning in world religions
Born in Hollywood, California and raised in Ethiopia during his early years, Dr. Preston has spent
his life searching the globe for meaningful paradigms that bring a degree of higher conscious-
ness in human spirituality. He has taught for over thirty years in the State University of New York
system as Professor of Anthropology and Chair of the Religious Studies Program. Dr. Preston has
published numerous books and articles on a wide variety of topics in symbolic anthropology and
religious studies. He has conducted fieldwork on Hinduism in India and among Native American
Catholic populations in the United States and Canada. He is delighted to be returning to California
where he will be completing several projects for publication based on his research.

In a postmodern world of shifting boundaries and perceptions people often experience confusion,
loneliness and emptiness as they seek some sense of meaning in what appears to be a bewildering
chaos. The world religions have provided a variety of alternative models for human beings to lead

Christmas Cookies
When the scent of freshly baked cookies and the spirit of giving fills the air, we know Christmas-
time is near. The creation of these time-honored, traditional sweets can bring together friends and
family: perhaps a day spent gathered in the kitchen baking and decorating, or as a way for you to
share something made with love to those you love.
The class will make and bake many different types of cookies: drop, molded, bar, rolled, ice box,
and sliced. In addition we will discuss how to plan a cookie menu, how to store and package
your cookies, and prepare them for successful shipping. Recipes will include Decorated Sugar
Stars, Chocolate Macaroons, Orange Chocolate Chunk, Cranberry Pecan Bars, Baklava, Double
Chocolate Ginger Macadamia Nut.
Each participant will be taking home a sampler box of cookies

“Ban-Sang”-- The Korean Table
When most people think of Korean food they think of Kim-Chi the spicy vegetable condiment
served at all meals in Korea. However, the Korean table is more than kim-chi and the cuisine is
as sophisticated as any western cuisine “Ban-sang” refers to the table setting of the Korean table.
One of the prominent features of the Korean table is that all dishes are served at the same time
and that the settings are determined by the number of side dishes served. Join Chef Ken in an
adventure exploring the world of Korean cuisine. In this hands on class you will learn how to
prepare some of Korea’s most popular dishes such as, “Bugoli” otherwise known as Korean BB,
Kim-Chi Che-Gae, a spicy chili pepper cabbage soup, and Bi-Bim-Bop a very special dish of baked
rice with beef and vegetables.

Sensory evaluation of wine (wine tasting)
You may have been to wine tasting seminars and classes before. Or this might be your first expe-
rience. Whichever, this class will offer you new insight into the sensory evaluation of your wine
tasting experience. Emphasis will be placed on “tastes of the places” --where the grapes are grown,
how the tastes of the same varietals varies. You will also have opportunities to pair your wine
with food, meet winemakers, and learn about winemaking techniques. Your instructor, George
Vierra, is a veteran winemaker and consultant to the wine industry.

A $35 material fee is included in the registration fee to cover the cost of bread, cheese and
wine. An aroma wheel is required.

Please bring 6 glasses. All students must be at least 21 years old. Pre-registration is re-
quired.

Todd Walker has taught more than 30,000 students from beginners to those with years of lessons to
play the piano in just one day. Now, in this workshop, he will show you why his students proclaim
“I’ve learned more in three hours than I did in three years of lessons.” Now, in his workshop, Todd
will teach you 72 chords, 156 hand positions and how to read music from lead sheets and fake
books. You will learn how to play any popular song in any key and the tools of the trade that will
make you sound like a pro. Then you’ll be able to master your technique by using Todd’s exclusive
audio CD and study book. This class also prepares you to take Todd’s other Piano workshops. If
you can read the notes C, D, E, F, G, A, B you already know enough to enroll. If not, send a SASE
to Piano Magic, P.O. Box 1694, Rocklin, CA 95677 for a free pamphlet. Material fees of $25 will
be collected in class for study book and CD. Pre-registration is required.

Getting STARTED in digital photography
This class is for the beginning digital photographer who is trying to decide which camera to
purchase or has purchased a camera and is afraid of it. We will ‘demystify digital’. How does the
camera work? What are all these controls? How do I know which camera to buy? How do I take
great digital photos? How do I transfer my images from my camera to my computer and organize
them? What is a JPEG? TIFF? How do I get a great print or an email? Through explanation and
demonstration you will leave with a good understanding of this wonderful digital photography
phenomenon. Note: Beginners should not take both classes (Getting Started and Getting More)

Propel Your Business Goals
We know that successful people plan. They make goals and work step by step to achieve them.
You have heard the quote, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. So why is it that even with the
best intentions, over 90% say they have given up on their New Year’s goals by March? For one,
the psyche resists change even when you intellectually know it’s a positive one. While traditional
goal setting is a powerful tool, it’s only one component to successfully completing an important
goal. Often negative patterns (i.e., limiting beliefs, attitudes and habits) are hard to overcome with
TGS alone. Critical inner voices and limiting beliefs sabotage our best intentions.

This class circumvents these issues and allows you to unlock your potential by:
  •	 Having	you	get	to	the	essence	of	what	you	really	want	and	using	that	energy	to	propel	you	
     forward
  •	 Identifying,	clearing	and	reprogramming	limiting	beliefs	or	patterns	that	cause	us	to	give	up	
     short	of	achieving		our	goals
  •	 Creating	vibrational	harmony	within,	thereby	attracting	right	things,	people,	opportunities	
     and	experiences	to	help	you	succeed
  •	 Designing	and	producing	results	from	a	new	paradigm	and	set	of	inspired	actions

This class is a perfect fit if you are small business owner building your foundation for success or
looking to go to that next level in your business.

Be a Power Seller on E-Bay
This fast paced seminar is designed as an introduction into using E-Bay and other e-commerce
applications to generate more sales and revenue. Businesses with unique products can greatly
expand the size of their market using auctions and the internet. While the focus of this seminar
will be on buying and selling on E-Bay, other options will be presented depicting the pros and
cons from an independent consultant.

A quick introduction on buying strategies, particularly from a business perspective will kick-off
the seminar. A look at some of the features and programs from E-Bay and from third party ven-
dors will be presented. The selling basics will be explored going through the process of setting
up an account and through an entire transaction. Advanced topics include a discussion on auction
management tools provided from E-Bay and other sources.

While there will be some “how to” instruction, the focus will be on using these e-commerce pro-
grams to generate a broader audience for your products and looking at the financial consequences
that affect profitability. A discussion of actual case studies of businesses and their E-Bay applica-
tion will be included.

                                      REGISTRATION RECEIPTS
 Students registering by phone, fax or mail will be mailed a receipt; those registering in person will be
 given one. Please inspect the receipt to be sure you are enrolled in the class you want. Call 253-3070
 or 967-290 if you do not receive a receipt or have a problem with it. YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED
 until you receive written confirmation from the college. If a class or trip is full, we notify you, put
 your name on the waiting list, and no charges will be made to your account. Failure to attend class or
 trip because you did not receive confirmation receipt does NOT warrant consideration for a refund.
