ABOUT OUR SEATTLE CLASSES

Rekindle School offers dozens of fun, affordable  Classes and workshops in Seattle.

Subjects include 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, 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.



GOT A QUESTION?

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.

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?

Our philosophy

  • The impulse to be creative is inborn. We have a human need to find ways to be creative as long as we’re alive.
  • Whether you’re hoping to learn something new and different you’ve never tried before; go deeper into a subject you love, and learn more about it; or rekindle a creative energy you thought you might have lost, our classes and workshops can help.

COMMENTS ABOUT OUR CLASSES

“…I wanted to say thank you for your help and guidance in the early stages of my acting career. It has been a great journey that started in your beginning acting class. I am happy to report that I just met a very awesome goal. I will be a day actor in the TV series Grimm this week.It was your coaching that set and codified the foundation that helped get me where I am today. Thank you so much for your help.   If you would like to, please feel free to share my story with your other students and on the website. Best wishes and with my sincerest gratitude, Joey Coverson”

…I want to thank you for inspiring me to follow me dreams. I left Washington. I am down in California. I have started a television production company and I auditioned for a Harley Davidson Commercial yesterday as an actor.Everything is moving at light speed…and in a positive direction. It all started with you in that classroom at the U of W. – Robert C., Hollywood

…I just want to thank you for the (crash course in filmmaking) classes. I never learned so much over a short period of time and remembered it. You wasted no time on the non-essentials. I greatly appreciate the fact that you were very receptive to everyone’s questions. Your experience, dedication, and passion for film making made this a fantastic learning experience for me. – J. Vega


Thanks for taking some time before the class to help me figure out which class I should take. You weren’t just trying to “sell” me a class, you helped me find the one that would be a good next step for me. – M.J. (Seattle)


“I have enjoyed your class. You have been providing great direction for what to look for in SEO and things that you can do to improve anyone’s rankings…. I liked the presentation style, very good information.” – Jim Hopper, Seattle


“The exercise you did using one of your own websites as an example, and showing how the right changes could raise it in the search engine results, was really helpful.” – E.W., Tacoma.


 

“Just wanted to let you know that I completed my application to the Game Animation Certificate program, and as of a week ago received notice of my acceptance. One of my portfolio pieces was a charcoal figure based upon one of the exercises from class – and of course, I’d never touched charcoal before meeting you. Thanks again for all the tips and encouragement! Your classes really helped polish my skills and boost my confidence a great deal. — J.C. (Seattle)


“I just moved back to Seattle… yay! … and was looking for an introductory level course so I could get back into painting.  I just wanted to start with the basics again.  I love watercolors, but always had a hard time getting the results I wanted, so signed up for the Watercolor painting class.  It was fun and I learned a lot. I would recommend the class to others who are either just starting out or, like me, wanting to get back into painting after a break.” – B.R., Lake Forest Park


“I found Sarah’s calligraphy class on a social site, and I’m so glad I did… Sarah is very encouraging, and always has a great time with us! I would highly recommend attending one of Sarah’s classes — they are a blast!” – Savanah D.


“…I want you to know that taking this class has truly made a difference for me. I lost the fear to shoot and produce films. It has given me the knowledge and skills I was seeking and the confidence I need to step into film making.  I have to tell you — you are an incredible teacher! I cannot thank you ENOUGH!  I’ll definitely recommend this class to all my friends. Thanks so much for the highly engaging and inspiring class. – J. Vega
