CMC seeks ideas for community classes at Glenwood Springs open house

Annmarie Deter is the new coordinator of continuing education at Colorado Mountain College Glenwood Springs. Spring semester classes start the week of Jan. 14.

Colorado Mountain College will host an open house in Glenwood Springs Friday afternoon to celebrate its continuing education classes for the upcoming semester.

The college invites guests to meet instructors, learn about the classes being offered and share their own ideas for future classes CMC should offer.

“I see my job as giving back to the community, and what better way to do that than continuing education?” Annmarie Deter, coordinator of continuing education for CMC Glenwood Springs, said in a statement. “People light up, they get excited when I ask them what kinds of classes they want to take — whether it’s pottery, or cooking or woodworking.”

CMC’s continuing education program offers noncredit classes to help people pursue special interests including art, music, dance, photography, and woodcrafts. The program also offers self-improvement classes like nutrition, physical activities and recreation, as well as skill-building classes in business, technology and language.

CMC’s continuing education classes are typically offered based on community demand. In the 1970s, “Slimnastics” and macramé were popular classes, but now people sign up for classes called “Booty Barre” and “Use Your iPad and iPhone to Their Full Potential,” according to a press release. The college draws from local expertise to teach courses like fly-fishing, homeopathic remedies and mosaics.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

The Friday open house will run from 4-7 p.m. at the college’s Glenwood Center, located at 1402 Blake Ave.
