Our CE programs embrace artists and designers of all ages and backgrounds—high school students, second-career students, art teachers, individuals ready to take their studio practice to the next level and those who are just beginning to explore artmaking. SMFA faculty, all professional practicing artists or designers, mentor and motivate every student in their practice.

SMFA at Tufts offers individual classes, certificates and specialized programs for all levels. Continuing Education courses at the school allow you to immerse yourself in art-making and creativity while maintaining your work and family schedules.
