EWC highlights upcoming workshop presented by Peak Wellness Center

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington is offering the following a presentation by the Peak Wellness Center titled “Divorce and Starting Over”. This workshop will be held on Saturday, March 24 from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm in the EWC CTEC building room 133. The cost of the workshop is $125.

This workshop is for persons who are divorced or thinking of divorce. Whether you are recently divorced or have been divorced for years, this is an event you want to consider. The focus of this workshop will be to educate and inform in a supportive and informal setting. This is not a lecture program, it will be participative.  Individuals will be encouraged to discuss and explore materials and meet others with similar experiences.  Topics to be explored:  the 10 leading causes of divorce; what to consider before either you remarry or enter another relationship; communication—how good is your communication, what are potential roadblocks to good communication; the impact of divorce on children and family members; how to avoid bringing the GHOSTS from the past into a current relationship.

This workshop is not a formal event—the structure and format is to allow for a comfortable and interactive environment. Come planning to share, as you chose, and learn by interacting.  Plan to relax and have fun as we explore together. The purpose is help individuals evaluate what they might do differently in future relationships, learn from their past, and hopefully, acquire new skills.

Terry Stanclift, LPC, will facilitate this workshop and is a licensed professional counselor with many years of experience in the mental health field. He has experience working with adults and a wide range of presenting problems.  He has also been divorced and studied this issue for many years. EWC Community Education will be taking registrations and payment for this workshop.

According to Wyrulec’s General Manager Ryan Schilreff “Wyrulec was able to utilize $5,000 in donated capital credits and match those funds, dollar-for-dollar in a partnership with CoBank’s Sharing Success program.” CoBank, a cooperative bank serving agribusinesses, rural infrastructure providers and Farm Credit Associations throughout the United States, created the Sharing Success program to support the charitable contributions of its customers.

Through the program, the bank’s cooperative customers can invest in the non-profit organization of their choice and CoBank will match those funds up to $5,000. Schilreff feels the partnership through CoBank makes sense because of the bank’s commitment to U.S. agriculture and rural communities. The Wyrulec Board of Directors is pleased that it was able to invest in the ATEC facility and believes that the region will see a direct benefit from a high-tech facility that advances agricultural education.

Each year Wyrulec provides up to $10,000 in scholarship support for area students. The scholarships follow the local students to their higher education institution of choice. Investing in ATEC will be another way that Wyrulec is able to participate in the lives of their co-op members and families.

For more information about ATEC, please contact John Hansen, Director for Institutional Development, 307.532.8304 or john.hansen@ewc.wy.edu.

EWC highlights upcoming Paint like the Old Masters class

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington is offering the following class.

Learn how to Paint like the Old Masters
Have you ever wondered how the great European painters of the past created their astonishing illusions of light and shadow using oil paint? They didn’t have any secrets, it was all about technique.  It is a bit of science mixed with a lot of artistry.  This class will be held on Tuesdays, March 13 through April 3, from 5-8:00pm. The cost of this class is $45.

Come and learn this fascinating technique with EWC Art Faculty John Cline.  Prior experience working with oil paints is helpful, but not essential. Throughout the course, you will learn the technique by recreating a still life painting by the 17th Century Dutch painter Adriaen Coorte.

You will need to purchase 6 tubes of paint (oil medium), brushes, a mixing knife and canvas.  Kits will be available for purchase at the EWC bookstore.

To register for this class or others, contact the EWC Community Education office at 307.532.8213 or 307.532.8323 or stop by to visit them at 3200 West C Street in Torrington.
