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.

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.

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.

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

  • 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.
