Furman University’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, a program for adults over 50, will offer 14 four-week summer classes and Friday bonus events June 2-26 through the virtual meeting app Zoom.
The course topics include oil painting, interesting characters in history and yoga for the curious, and will meet for an hour and a half to two hours each week. The cost of each for week course is $35 except for guitar III, which is $40. In addition, any adult can sign up, and there will not be a membership fee for the summer. OLLI will also host Zoom orientation sessions for those interested in taking a class.
“It’s a great time to do something for yourself while you stay at home,” said Nancy Kennedy, director of OLLI at Furman. “Our members have found that Zoom is easier to use than they imagined, and online classes are more engaging than they ever expected.”
On every Friday in June, the program will also offer five free different bonus one-day trips and events. These events will meet for two hours and explore topics such as Goats 4 Goodness and learning about oils and vinegars.
