DukeCreate Arts Workshop Series

The FREE workshop series for Duke Students is back this spring with ceramics, screen printing, painting/drawing, photography, and media production. Taught by local artists and MFA students. The Duke University Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts (DukeArts) and University Center Activities and Events (UCAE) have worked with the Arts Annex, duARTS, VisARTS and Artstigators, to organize these workshops where students can learn and practice studio art techniques.

The DukeCreate Arts Workshop Series (calendar PDF) will include instruction in photography – digital and dark room, screen printing, ceramics, and painting and drawing. The workshops will start the first week of September and end in late November, in keeping with the academic calendar. Instruction will be offered by local arts professionals, MFA|EDA students and Duke faculty. The workshops will be held in a creative and supportive environment with an emphasis on skill development and practical experience.

The purpose of the workshops is to create an extracurricular educational experience, connect students with on-campus student arts organizations and opportunities, foster a forum for dialogue and dynamic community building in the arts on campus and with local arts organizations in the triangle area.

The workshops will also expose participants to the academic opportunities available in the arts on campus, including courses, majors, grants, independent study, internships, mentorships, and create collaborative interaction where students gain practical guidance about careers in the arts.
