I must have been feeling creative this week. All of the events this week center around the arts! It is good to nurture your inner artist sometimes. They say that people who practice some type of art whether it be music, woodworking, ceramics, or painting have better brain function than those who don’t. So in the name of science get out there and create something!

1. Pumpkin 3 Ways in Fort Collins


Every year I look forward to the fall for one primary reason… pumpkin seeds! As a kid, my dad would urge us to keep the seeds so he could roast them. That guy has a talent for making some delicious roasted pumpkin seeds. But in addition to that, you can do much more with pumpkin! This class shows you different pumpkin recipes as well as lets you prepare your own pumpkin inspired dish. This sounds like so much fun. Sign me up! Grab your tickets here! The class is $25 per person.

  • Happening: Saturday, October 15
  • When: 1:30 PM  –  3:30 PM
  • Where: Gardens on Spring Creek, 2145 South Centre Ave, Fort Collins, CO

2. Intro to DSLR Photography in Fort Collins


Photography is a tricky art form, but once you understand the technology you are working with, nothing but magic happens! This class is devoted to helping you through understanding the complicated DSLR! I recommend anyone who has even the vaguest interest in photography to take advantage of this class. Maybe it will help to spark some inspiration for a talent you didn’t event know you had! That’s what happened to me! Since I took a photography class I gained the much-needed knowledge to get my photographs published. You could do the same!

  • Happening: Thursday, October 13th
  • When: 7 PM – 9 PM
  • Where: Old Town Photo Studio, 221 Jefferson St, Fort Collins, CO
