Community Enrichment Programs

Community Enrichment Programs provide courses, seminars and activities that contribute to the community’s overall cultural, civic, and intellectual growth. Courses are designed to assist adults in the development of new skills, or upgrading of existing ones. Hundreds of classes and events offered each year provide lifelong learning opportunities to community members of Buncombe and Madison counties. The Program offers a variety of classes in fine arts; from drawing and painting to photography and pottery (ceramics). The language component includes French, Italian, German, Spanish, and American Sign Language. Recreation, Music, Dance and Film classes including fly fishing, contemporary dance, and film appreciation classes attract thousands of adult learners to the campus each year. Financial Wellness and Home and Garden classes such as backyard chickens, botany, upholstery, sewing and quilting add to the diversity of the courses offered.
