Learn Something New in the New Year

Have fun this New Year by putting a twist on your Resolutions and resolve to learn something new! Have you ever thought about taking a class to learn a new hobby or skill? This is the perfect time as “winter semester” will be starting in soon!

Many school districts offer winter community education classes. These are classes held at your local school at a very affordable cost. These classes may range from hobby topics such as cooking and knitting to technical courses that can teach you some new ways to use your digital camera or use your computer.

You don’t have to stop there. You may also be able to find some fun and unique classes at your local library, county parks, craft stores, and home improvement stores.

Some of these classes may only meet once, and some may meet once a week for several weeks. Before you pay for anything, check to make sure the dates will work with your schedule and ask what their refund policy is, just in case an emergency comes up and you miss a class (or several of them).

It’s also a good idea to find out if the cost of the class covers any supplies you will need. You don’t want to find out that your $20 make your own birdhouse class will end up costing you an additional $100 in materials!

As an adult, heading back to “school” can be all about having a good time, so go out there and learn something new!
