Learn a New Skill

Want to tap into your inner artist in a new and different way? John Campbell Folk School provides experiences in non-competitive learning and community life that are “joyful and enlivening.” Year-round weekend or week-long classes are offered in everything from cooking and gardening, to craft, music, art and dance. Or, sign up for nature studies, photography or writing classes.

You’ll enjoy a convivial setting, meet new friends, and learn something along the way. Think the muse passed you by when giving out talent? Test yourself. You might be as surprised as many others who’ve gone once and returned again and again.

Hint: Step out of your comfort zone. Think you can draw but not write? Take a writing class. Love to garden but can’t take a photo? Take a photography class and learn how to document your garden treasures.

Wow Factor: One blogger describes the experience as, “more a state of mind than a place. Sure the food is great and the mountains are beautiful, the people are friendly and the classes engaging … but it’s sort of a Peter Pan kind of place. Each week, more than a hundred grown-ups arrive and leave behind the cares and responsibilities of our adult worlds to play.”
