Non-credit Art Classes and Workshops

The Center for Arts and Crafts offers a great selection of non-credit art classes and workshops for Penn State students, faculty, and staff. We offer everything from wheel-thrown pottery, painting, drawing, stained glass, and dance, to a mix of fun workshops such as crochet, recycled arts, and seasonal crafts. 

Art classes and workshops are free from academic pressure and designed for beginners and intermediates. Class size is small, and classes are offered in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere to encourage discovery and development of creative skills.

Classes are offered during spring, summer, and fall semesters.
