DukeCreate is a free arts workshop series for the Duke community taught by local artists and students in the MFA EDA program. Workshop topics emphasize skill development and practical experience in ceramics, screen printing, painting and drawing, photography, and digital media. DukeCreate workshops are offered in the Arts Annex, with the exception of most digital media workshops, which are offered in the Rubenstein Arts Center.
