ABOUT OUR CLASSES!

Looking for enjoyable, affordable Classes and workshops in Seattle?  

Rekindle School offers dozens of classes in subjects including drawing, painting, writing, acting, filmmaking, stand-up comedyvoiceover, small business marketing, and more. 

Our classes are not-for-credit, meaning that the focus is on learning and having fun (not on tests or grades). To start exploring our class offerings, scroll down or click here!

NOTE: Rekindle School is part of the same “business umbrella” as the Seattle Experimental College. (We handle all of their registrations.) So you can find most of the same classes on their website, as on ours. Most of our classes are for adults, but some are also open to kids and teens.


YOU CAN FIND CLASSES BY MONTH…

What is Rekindle School? 

  • We’re an independent educational program in Seattle.
  • We offer fun, affordable classes.
  • We’re a Seattle art school, Seattle acting school, and Seattle film school, all rolled into one.

What’s your guiding philosophy?

  • Our philosophy is that being anyone can learn to write, draw, act, sing, or express themselves creatively in other ways.
  • Training is more important than “talent.”
  • When you take classes, you may find a talent for something you’ve never tried before.
  • As we go through life, people can lose touch with their creativity for a while. But it can be rekindled. We’re here to help.

Where do your classes meet?

What’s different about Rekindle School, from other Seattle schools? 

  • Most schools have a gap of several weeks each quarter during which enrollments are not accepted.
  • When we set our program, we did away with that gap.
  • On the day after a class or workshop begins each quarter, registration becomes active for the same class or workshop for the following quarter.
  • This means that when you see a class, you can usually sign up right away. You don’t have to wait weeks for another opportunity to enroll.

How do I sign up? 

  • Just click the “Sign Me Up” link and follow the prompts!
  • You can pay by credit/debit card or Paypal.

Can kids sign up, or are the classes just for adults? 

  • Most classes are for adults, and most of our students are over 18.
  • Some teachers do allow younger students, but you should check first.
  • Just email rekindleschool@gmail.com 

Do you have gift certificates?
