More than two dozen workshops, from a one-day Saturday writing workshop to a six-week Thursday evening workshop on landscape design, will be offered at the historic property. Other courses offered include an introduction to astronomy, creative drawing, knitting, introduction to bird-watching, Reiki and painting with watercolors.
Courses begin in February, March, April and June and are offered at night and on weekends.
"Our goal is to offer unique courses in a refreshing setting," said Mary Shattuck of the college's Corporate and Community Education Center. "We've created a very exciting selection of personal enrichment courses focusing on arts, relaxation, gardening, knitting, and including astronomy and bird-watching."
