Personal and Family Enrichment


Personal and Family Enrichment programs (courses, camps, retreats, workshops, etc.) are non-credit and allow participants to learn and have fun as they explore arts, crafts, and cultural heritage. The programs offer an economical way to try a new hobby, expand a craft, improve basic skills--and so much moreThey are designed to enrich the intellectual and social lives of children and adults by offering stimulating educational opportunities taught by outstanding faculty and guest lecturers.

To register or not to register--that is the question!

The answer?  Yes--sort of!  Many of our workshops and classes are scheduled "on demand".  We strongly encourage you to pre-register for workshops or classes that are of interest to you.  When we have enough people interested in a particular workshop or class, we schedule the program.  If you pre-register, you are under no obligation to attend and fees are not paid until the class has been scheduled and you have chosen to enroll.  Pre-register here.

Lots of subjects to explore!

Our Personal and Family Enrichment prgrams cover a broad range of areas and topics.  These courses offer an economical way to try out a new hobby, build on existing skills, or learn how to use technology to stay in touch with family and friends.  These courses (ranging from two hours to one day) are provided to our community at both campuses through partnerships with local senior centers, community groups, and artisans.
