Continuing Studies courses are open enrollment and are designed for adults ages 18 and older. These courses are offered in an extended format and can be 4, 6, 8 10 or 12 weeks long. Credit for completion of a Continuing Studies course is offered in the form of Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally accepted unit of measurement for individual participation in continuing education courses. One CEU is issued for ten hours of class participation.
One day and weekend workshops are offered to give students the opportunity to experience an art form with a shorter time commitment.
Week long intensives take place during breaks in the academic year. These courses typically take place 9 am - 5 pm, Monday - Friday for one week. Students experience the same high level of instruction as an extended course in a condensed amount of time.
The Artist Retreat series takes place in the summer. A variety of intensives and workshops are designed to provide creative rejuvenation for summer visitors and year round locals. Whether visiting Maine for a week and looking for a creative outlet or a local seeking creative rejuvenation, this series offers a variety of artistic endeavors.
