Lifelong Learning Opportunities in Wilmington North Carolina
Baby Boomers no longer look at retirement as a time to relax and kick back. Instead, they’re embracing the concept of personal enrichment through lifelong learning on college campuses and at community centers. Retirement is the optimal time to pursue those passions, hobbies and interests unattainable while raising a family and chasing the brass ring. Residents of popular Wilmington NC retirement communities are taking advantage of lifelong learning opportunities being offered at the Leland Cultural Arts Center (LCAC), less than two miles from Brunswick Forest, an award winning master planned community in Leland.
The Leland Cultural Arts Center is an arts educational center that provides residents of all ages a chance to learn a new skill or sharpen current ones from creative and qualified instructors. Below is a list of available fun classes at the center:
- Silk Scarf Dying
- Copper Jewelry Creating
- Jewelry Making
Details for each class including times, cost and class levels can be found on LCAC’s website. And if attending classes on a regular basis is too much of a commitment, various workshops and gallery exhibits are also held throughout the year. There are physical and emotional well-being benefits for seniors who embrace a lifelong learning lifestyle. And the students aren’t the only benefactors. Family, friends and community also gain from their added knowledge and creativity.
It’s lifelong learning activities like these held at LCAC that make Leland North Carolina real estate so attractive to retirees and people looking to relocate to a more fun place to live. Another draw to the Wilmington NC retirement communities is the mild four season weather and beautiful beaches.
