ASTORIA — Astoria’s senior group, ENCORE, in partnership with Clatsop Community College, is offering winter classes offered to members by volunteer activists and scholars.

Classes are free to anyone 50 and older. A $50 yearly fee is required to register.

Classes include stretching techniques: a writing exchange for members to read from their works in progress and offer feedback to others; a class on horses and their history; “literary sharing,” that is, learning the art of reading aloud; a science exchange addressing science categories; stitchery for seniors, including fabric art; a drawing class; a class on Mediterranean peoples and places of antiquity; and an intro to the philosophy of pragmatism.
