Want to brush up your conversational French? Conquer your fear of
public speaking? Learn to belly dance, cook Thai vegetarian, or make
beaded jewelry? You can do all that and more at Piedmont Adult School,
which offers evening and weekend education on several Piedmont school
campuses. Local experts develop and teach classes on an enticing array
of topics, and the low-key atmosphere is both a boon to learning and a
delightful antidote to everyday stress. Courses run from one day to ten
weeks, a level of commitment that's manageable for most working people,
and the enrollment fees are within the reach of most nonworking people
— so get up there and expand your job skills in a computer class.
Lead foots can even clear things up in the DMV-licensed traffic
violator program; after all, if you have to do traffic school, you
might as well do it in scenic Piedmont. And, while some classes entail
homework, there are never any grades.
