Registration is now open for The Clearing Folk School’s Winter Program classes, which start Jan. 4 and end Feb. 23. More than 90 adult day-classes, many of which run multiple weeks, are being offered this year. In addition to an impressive variety of classes, the Winter Program represents something unique and wonderful about Door County – an amazing group of 85 volunteer instructors who generously share their time, along with their considerable talent, for the benefit of the community.
Classes are published online at theclearing.org. Catalogs have been delivered to Clearing student mailboxes around Thanksgiving and are also available at the Jens Jensen Visitor Center during business hours of 8 am – 4 pm, Monday to Friday. Registrations are accepted in-person or through the mail prior to the “lottery” deadline date of Dec. 14 (see catalog or online information for detailed lottery information for overenrolled classes). After Dec. 14, registrations are still accepted and classes will then be filled as space permits on a first come, first registered basis.
The Clearing’s Holiday Open House is scheduled for 10 am – 4 pm on Dec. 8 & 9, at the Jens Jensen Visitor Center, 12171 Garrett Bay Road, Ellison Bay. It’s a perfect time to register for Winter Program classes. Come and enjoy freshly mulled apple cider and tasty treats while cozying up to the crackling fire. The Clearing’s indoor Christmas forest is also a delight for the senses. This free event is open to the public. For more information call 920.854.4088.
