ST. GEORGE – Dixie State College’s community education program will host the inaugural Family Education Fair on Sept. 23-24, at the DSC North Plaza Building.
The Fair consists of five instructional sessions, beginning Friday evening from 7-9 p.m. The Friday session includes courses on Dutch oven cooking, Facebook demonstration and instruction, ballroom dancing, lunch preparation ideas and a class on how to play the video games “Guitar Hero” and “Rock Band.”
Saturday’s schedule features four sessions, with the first session starting at 9 a.m. Saturday’s first session courses will include one on parent/child basketball taught by DSC Head Men’s Basketball Coach Jon Judkins, skim boarding, pickle ball, a Skype tutorial, and a history discussion on George Washington.
Saturday’s second session begins at 11 a.m., with classes on CPR and emergency preparedness, crafts for kids, online scrapbooking, skim boarding and a history discussion on Abraham Lincoln.
After a lunch break, the first of two afternoon sessions begins at 2 p.m., with courses on Tai Chi, genealogy, geology and home décor.
The final session of the fair will begin at 3:45 p.m., with instruction in self-defense, photography, CSI/Forensics, and a class session on autism.
“We have a great lineup of classes that all family members will be interested in,” said Steve Bringhurst, DSC Dean of Adult Studies and Community Service. “We have a wide variety of courses that children can take part in, and classes the family can do together; so we’ve tried to cover the whole gamut with this Family Education Fair.”

Cost for each class (per session) is $5 per person, or families may register for a class together for just $15 (per session – maximum of six family members).
