FAQ ABOUT OUR SEATTLE ART CLASSES

  1. Where are the classes held?  Most of our Seattle art classes take place on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, Washington.  You’ll be given the exact location and driving directions for your class when you sign up.

  2. Is Classesandworkshops.com an art school?  We’re a Seattle art school, acting school, film school, writing school, dance school, yoga school, and software school, all under one umbrella.
  3. Should the classes be taken in a certain order?  It depends on what you’re looking for.  For example, if you’re brand new at drawing… have never picked up a pencil before… and are wanting to explore it and find an approach that works for you, Drawing for Absolute Beginners is a good class to start with.  (It can also be helpful for folks who’d like to learn to paint, because learning to draw can help with a number of aspects of painting.)  But it’s fine to take whatever classes catch your eye in any order.
  4. Do students need to bring anything to the classes? It depends on the class. In some classes, the materials are provided. In others, you’ll need to pick up a materials kit, or bring your own.
  5. What should I wear to class? Any time you attend art classes, we recommend wearing something comfortable, but that you won’t mind if it ends up with a little smudge on it, because some art materials (like paints, inks and dyes) may not wash out.
  6. What makes Classesandworkshops.com different from other Seattle art schools? There are lots of art schools in Seattle, each with their own approach and focus.  In our program, you’ll tend to find classes that are short, but incisive and focused, so you’ll learn a lot in just a few hours or meetings, and can get started in learning a subject without spending a lot of money – then take more classes if you’d like to continue learning.
