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.

Registration Information

Class space is limited. Participants are required to be a Penn State affiliate with a valid Penn State ID to register for adult art classes and workshops. 

The Center for Arts and Crafts is open for registrations on Monday- Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Email with questions. 

Wheel Thrown Pottery Classes

Learn the techniques of wedging, centering, pulling, shaping, and glazing while working on a pottery wheel.

The class price includes clay, glazes, and kiln firing. A $13.00 fee for a new pottery tool kit is required.

If you have wheel-thrown pottery experience, consider purchasing one of our memberships for the semester.
