New Year’s resolutions aren’t all about working out and eating healthier. Sometimes, they’re about improving yourself in other ways.
If you’re interested in expanding your horizons, improving your expertise, pursuing a hobby, or learning a new skill, then Columbus is the place for you.
Instead of spending another year wishing that you’d done something differently, look through this list, get inspired, and go after your dreams. They’re all waiting for you at the click of a link. Seriously, all you have to do is pick one!
Savoir Cooking + Wine
Not everyone learns how to cook growing up, which can make for a rough transition to life on your own. If you’re looking to expand on your skills in the kitchen, a cooking class at Savoir may be just the ticket.
Classes range from American comfort foods to pasta-filled date nights and prices for classes vary from $70-$225, depending on the class. You can view the full class schedule on their website here.
Cultural Arts Center
The Columbus Cultural Arts Center has been in the business of teaching for about four decades years. This program, which is offered through the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, offers courses that vary from ceramics to painting to weaving and everything in between. In order to register for classes at the CAC, the first step is creating an account with the Recreation and Parks Department.
After that, you can explore the full class list on the CAC’s website. In-person programming is scheduled to begin soon.
Sew to Speak
Quilting, knitting, and crocheting are just a few of the classes offered at Sew to Speak in Worthington. If you’ve never touched a sewing machine in your life, don’t fret, you can start out with Sewing 101. If you crave something a little more challenging, you can look into higher-level classes or even private lessons.
At Sew To Speak, people of all talent levels are welcome. The classes offer a unique way to add creativity to your life, as well as learn a life skill that most people don’t possess! Classes start at $45. For more info, please click here.
Want to get out of your comfort zone this year? Learn to speak up and get some laughs with Hashtag Comedy. These improv classes aren’t just for comedians. They can help you be more outgoing, improve your ability to think on your feet and give you an opportunity to meet new people.
If you’re just starting your journey, you can request more info about improv classes through their website.
Franklin Park Conservatory
Franklin Park Conservatory offers a variety of classes throughout the year for both members and non-members. From cake decorating to building fern terrariums to painting classes, the conservatory allows you to try out so many skills until you find one that you like.
Although non-members can participate in classes, members receive discounted pricing. You can learn more about Franklin Park Conservatory memberships right here. If tickets or memberships won’t fit in your budget right now, the Conservatory also classes on Community day, which is a free day.
