Try a new hobby

Filed under: hobbies — by moneytolive @ 5:00 am

If you are thinking of trying a new hobby, check out the resources in your community. There is a probably a local club or class you can take to try a new activity while receiving expert guidance.

The Princeton Adult School offers classes in a range of subjects from basket weaving and ballroom dancing to acting and writing. I took four classes (writing, guitar I, guitar II, and watercolor) and found it a great way to learn a new skill and see my friends regularly.

I meet some really interesting people in these classes. Admittedly, a lot of my classmates were retired, and they were frequently the only ones who completed the homework. Who else has time to complete two paintings each week? or read short stories while writing an original piece? The great thing about this school is that homework is optional.

Registration for fall classes is usually in August and September, so check the local offerings soon.

Have you taken community classes? If so, how did you find out about the class?
