NCLL Visits Zero Degrees Artist Gallery

"The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning visited the Zero Degrees Gallery for demonstrations by five of the galleries artists. Jackie Gallagher, Amy Conover, Kay Johnson, Norm Hefke and Marc Himes all gave presentations involving their art which included construction of small glass keepsake triangle pyramids, jewelery from deconstructed cameras, water color, and Wood Turning . There was a nice group of people from NCLL and the presentations were very informative. It is always interesting to see the process used by another artist."

What is the NCLL?

The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning (NCLL) is an organization that plans and offers informal educational programs and activities to enrich the daily lives of its members and others through mini-courses, regular programs, outdoor activities and social events. Member directed, self-supporting and nonprofit, it is affiliated with Northern Michigan University and the Road Scholar Elderhostel Institute Network.

 

When and how often are the programs offered?

More than twenty new courses are offered each term - fall, winter, and spring/summer. Both daytime and evening programs are available. For more information, see the following: Summer/Fall 2015 Book, Summer/Fall 2015 Calendar, and Summer/Fall 2015 Registration and Waiver. 

Please notice that some events require pre-registration and prepayment.

What are NCLL interest groups?

Initiated and managed by NCLL members, interest groups function independently of NCLL, but we want to encourage folks to get together around particular activities they enjoy.  On-going interest groups include Astronomy, Geocaching/GPS, Bridge, Lunch Out Together, and Walking/XC-Skiing. Learn more
