Community Education Classes and Workshops

Since 1898, we have proudly provided community education to the community of Manchester. Today, we offer weekly classes, workshops, intensive residencies, and summer programs for teens and adults designed to fit your level of curiosity, experience, and available time. Our Community Education staff invites the novice and experienced artist alike to explore their unique voice and creative potential. Our faculty of accomplished practicing artists and passionate educators help students bring their inner artist to life. You’ll take advantage of our top-notch facilities and a constantly evolving curriculum working together to help you accomplish your own, personal creative goals.

In light of the COVID-19 health emergency and out of concern for both faculty and students, all community education classes at the New England College Institute of Art and Design in Manchester are cancelled now through May 4, 2020, at which time the College will determine the plan for the remainder of the semester and how to make up this class time. Please contact me with any questions.
