Each trimester, we reserve a limited number of seats in select courses from our certificate programs or other classes designed specifically for members of our community. These courses meet weekly for a few hours in the morning, afternoon, or evening, and some are a full day long. Community classes are a great opportunity to learn something new, dedicate focused time to your art practice, and tap into a community of artistic peers.  Local residents enjoy a special rate on these classes.
