DukeCreate Arts Workshops

DukeCreate is a free arts workshop series that offers Duke students and staff instruction in ceramics, screen printing, painting and drawing, photography, and media production. The workshops meet throughout the school year. Most take place in the Arts Annex—with the exception of the media workshops (location to be announced)—in a creative and supportive environment that emphasizes skill development and practical experience. Generally taught by local artists and students in Duke's MFA|EDA program, they also connect students with arts organizations and opportunities both on and off campus.
