DERRY — It’s a new year and anyone hoping to learn a new skill or brush up on an old one can find what they need through Derry’s Center for Adult Studies.

The popular adult education program is ready for a new session, with classes set to begin the week of Jan. 27.

Registration is now underway for classes offered this term, including fitness, international cooking, piano, guitar, art, ballroom dancing and technology.

Classes meet at various locations around town, including Gilbert H. Hood Middle School, West Running Brook Middle School, Ernest P. Barka Elementary School and Derry Village Elementary School.

Some of the offerings for winter 2014 are landscaping, greeting card artwork, knitting, raw foods and sign language.

People can also brush up on languages, cooking skills and learn how to stay healthy.

Adult basic education and GED preparation courses also are offered.

Instructors come from a wide range of professional careers and include artists, musicians, teachers and other life skill experts, all ready to teach what they know and help others learn.

Students must be at least 16 years of age to enroll in the program.

In-person registration will be held Jan. 11 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Gilbert H. Hood Middle School gym lobby, and again Jan. 15 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Hood’s main school lobby. Discounts are available for early registrations.
