Summer is just around the corner, and there is no better time to take advantage of the lineup of cool classes we have scheduled than the warm months of Santa Monica!

Our Summer Session starts June 17 and you can register online now for many classes! We continually offer the most popular classes to our community, and summer is the best time to try out new classes or continue with courses that meet your needs. (You can view classes online or download the PDF of our Summer Class Schedule.)

Our new classes include Stress Relief Techniques, Legal Aspects of Business, and Blockchain courses (see Michelle King column in this issue of Sound Bites). Although Blockchain might sound complicated, it’s a hot new technology for business that can help your enterprise immeasurably. Read the descriptions of these specialized courses to get greater insight into Blockchain.

Other returning courses worth highlighting include Fashion Tech Pack I, a one-of-a-kind workshop that introduces designers to the nitty-gritty details of the fashion industry and the skills it requires; Sewing Machine Bootcamp — with machines provided in class — which teaches sewing basics that will pave the way for more challenging future classes to complete your sewing repertoire; QuickBooks Certificate Series (QuickBooks I & II), which have been expanded into full-day workshops to teach you more; and our unique AVID Media Composer Exam Prep Workshop, which includes hands-on practice for the exam. (AVID is the industry standard when it comes to professional editing of feature films, documentaries, and all forms of broadcast or streaming digital media.)

For those interested in jumpstarting their language skills, we have French Pronunciation Workshop, our very popular Beginning Spanish Level I & Level II, and Italian for Continuing Students as well as Italian for Travelers, which will get you ready for survival Italian in four compact Thursday classes.

And all of these wonderful classes are just a sampler of what we have on tap in summer.

Remember, you can browse our classes and register online or download the PDF of our Summer Class Schedule. You can also call (310) 434-3400 or email us at for questions or more information.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
