WESTPORT — Westport Continuing Education has announced a dynamic, mobile-friendly website and new programs for adults for the fall.

All programs are now open for registration on the new website at http://www.westportcontinuinged.com. For more information, please call the Continuing Education office at 203-341-1209.

For fans of painting in one session, Denise Cirillo-Romaniello offers two one-night sessions in the Bob Ross Technique. Ross, the famous PBS TV host of “The Joy of Painting,” captivated audiences with his relaxed style and “happy clouds.” Grab a friend and complete a Seascape or Waterfall painting on October 17 or November 14 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. Christopher Hart is offering another class for anime and cartoon fans ages 16 and up in “Cartoons and Character Design” on Thursdays beginning Sept. 26. Hart is the author of over 100 how-to-draw books which have sold 7 million copies worldwide.

Based on feedback from surveys, another new offering for adults is “Acting: Get on Your Feet!” with Margie Stokley-Bronz. For adults ready to learn acting techniques, developing monologues, or singing, enjoy getting on your feet in a casual, judgment-free zone! Stokley-Bronz is a published playwright, actress, and filmmaker. She has taught classes for school-age children in the region and is ready to help adults break out into acting!
