O’More College of Design is offering a variety of art and design-based community education courses to the public through a new initiative to be launched in mid-February.
Anyone over the age of 16 is invited to participate, regardless of skill level. Courses include Watercolor Fundamentals, an Artist Trading Cards Workshop, Beginning Crochet and an AutoCAD Workshop. Participants should expect a hands-on learning experience from O’More’s leading instructors, and a class environment similar to that of O’More undergraduate courses.
“Our campus is a hub of creativity, and we wanted to provide an opportunity for the community to be a part of it,” says Shari Fox, O’More’s vice president of academic affairs. “For someone interested in trying a new artistic medium, it’s a chance to learn from a professional and evaluate whether a full semester course would be valuable.”
“Our mission is to prepare students to think critically and imaginatively, to become responsible citizens, and to develop a pattern of lifelong learning,” Fox says. “We can continue to fulfill that mission by igniting new passions and rekindling old ones through the Community Education initiative.”
