Summertime is a happy, bustling time in Continuing Studies at MECA. We welcome year-round residents as well as out-of-town visitors to all our programs!

CS offers three distinct class formats to satisfy a variety of interests and available time frames. Weekly classes range from 2 to 8 weeks, while weeklong intensives and 1-3 day workshops offer students a shorter, more concentrated time commitment.

Be where the action is this summer... our state-of-the-art facilities and dynamic faculty will kickstart your creative energy and galvanize your practice. You'll be glad you did!

Our Summer term runs June 7 - August 13, 2015
