Green Giving: Give Experience! Part 2

The Green Giving series continues today with more ideas on how to give experience this holiday season.

I love to learn new things. Fortunately, the sky is the limit when it comes to learning new things in the Natural State. For example…

Arkansas Arts Center Museum School

The Arkansas Arts Center Museum School offers a variety of classes on topics such as drawing, jewelry making, digital photography, and woodworking. Children, teens and adults of every skill level could participate. Classes are offered on a quarterly basis with day, evening and weekend classes available.

The Museum School is currently accepting registrations for Winter Quarter, which starts on January 3, 2011. Interested? Check out the School’s course offerings by clicking here.

Arkansas Extended Learning Center

Got a gardener on your holiday shopping list? How about a foodie? Then, check out Arkansas Extended Learning Center (A.E.L.C.)! A.E.L.C. has something for everyone – landscaping and gardening, wine tasting, gourmet cooking, sewing and knitting, language classes and more.

A.E.L.C. is currently accepting registrations for its Winter classes, most of which start in January 2011. Click here to browse A.E.L.C.’s course offerings.

Ozark Folk School at Ozark Folk Center

Learn traditional Ozark crafts, music and gardening in the beautiful and relaxed atmosphere of the Arkansas Ozarks.

Nestled in Mountain View, Arkansas, the Ozark Folk School offers a variety of workshops on topics such as cheesemaking, blacksmithing, candle making, weaving, and wood carving. Best of all, if you don’t find what you’re looking for, the School will help you set up a Design-Your-Own-Workshop that fits your schedule.

The School currently have three sessions of Folk School open for registration. For more information about the sessions, visit www.ozarkfolkcenter.com.

So, those are some of my ideas on how to give experience instead of “stuff” this holiday season. The Green Giving series will continue Monday with more ideas, so stay tuned!
