The first of what we hope will be an annual Chautauqua-in-June Learning Festival is winding down this week while the region is buzzing with activity gearing up for the summer season. The schedule of learning activities is also making a transformation to summer, and in addition to hundreds of classes offered annually through Chautauqua Institution’s Special Studies program, several venues around Chautauqua County offer vacation learning experiences all year long. Learn to paint en Plein Air or try landscape photography in the field. Nurture your creative spirit with artistic experiences from music and dance to knitting, jewelry making, stained glass, or miniature art. Go fishing with the help of an Orvis endorsed fly fishing guide or a charter captain on Lake Erie. Learn what’s involved in the brewing process or plan a winemaker’s dinner and add a lesson in food and wine pairing to a special occasion. There are hundreds of possibilities. Add learning to your next vacation either with scheduled classes or by customizing your own.
