LSU Leisure Courses Announced for Fall 2018

BATON ROUGE – Online registration is open for more than 40 LSU Leisure Courses scheduled between September and December.

New courses this fall include doll making, in which participants can learn to make folk-art jointed dolls; soap-making courses to prepare shea butter-kaolin soap and beer soap; and a new daytime course in the basic techniques of drawing with pastels. 

Notable returning courses include instruction for people who want to explore digital photography, backpacking, birding, woodworking, book binding, language courses in Spanish or Italian, and Cajun dance.

“Clay Date courses continue to be popular for people wanting to try something new. For a small fee two people can come to campus and share a creative experience,” said Lynne Maxwell, assistant director of the program.

The Leisure & Arts Program provides engaging and entertaining personal enrichment courses for LSU and the surrounding community. The arts studio in the LSU Student Union serves as the main hub for arts and craft courses. Leisure courses take place at both on-campus and off-campus locations, depending on the needs of the individual courses.
