Ashley Petry wants to share her love of learning. That’s why she started the Indianapolis-based blog That’ll Teach Me, which highlights local classes, workshops, and events where adults can go for continuing education of all varieties. Petry, a self-proclaimed education addict, delivers the latest news on continuing education opportunities in Indianapolis, which include everything from one-time-only cooking classes to Indianapolis art workshops to summer schedules at IUPUI.
For That’ll Teach Me, Petry also goes to a good deal of these classes herself, and much of her blogging includes exactly what she thinks about her first-hand experiences. “I’m not a great cook by any stretch of the imagination,” she writes in one entry. “But even I can throw together a quick pasta primavera; I don’t need the best pasta chef in town to spend an hour showing me how.”
What information Petry doesn’t write about specifically in her blog, she includes in a lengthy list of Website links on her main page. With just one click, interested That’ll Teach Me readers can find the latest news happening at places like the Carmel Academy of the Arts, Conner Prairie, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, as well as at smaller establishments like Boca Loca Beads, Brick House Fitness and the Indy Foreign Language Academy.
Outside of the learning spectrum, Petry also offers up a little on her other favorite things to do in Indianapolis, like the Summer Film Series at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. She not only introduces That’ll Teach Me readers to the classes but also to local experts in a variety of fields. Want to know how to paint? To knit? To build a successful career? There’s a lot to learn in Indianapolis on any day of the week, and Ashley Petry, through her That’ll Teach Me blog, makes finding those opportunities easy.
