A Celebration of Creativity: The 7th Annual CE Student Art Show
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso
This past year, most of us found ourselves staying home more than we ever have before. Connection with others frequently happened virtually through video-conferencing. We had to establish new routines that mostly happened from inside our own houses. As we navigated this “new normal,” many turned to Continuing Education classes as a way to connect with others and find inspiration. This year’s 7th Annual CE Student Art Show is a testament to our ability to adapt. All of the art works featured in the exhibit were made in classes held online with students working on their pieces at home.

Fred Radke, Founding Faculty
Let’s step back to the fall of 1970; the very first quarter students ventured onto the newly-constructed North Seattle College. No cell phones, no personal computers, no Zoom… and no music rooms! When Fred Radke came to campus as a founding member of the Music Program, there was no dedicated space for the program yet to speak of.
“We needed places to teach!” Radke remembers. “Well, we commandeered a restroom, draped it off, hung cardboard. We had rooms all over the college! We made a lecture hall into a concert hall.”
Essential Writing Tips: Balancing Complexity with Clarity
Remember the last time you were reading about a new subject or unfamiliar concept and felt frustrated? Maybe the author assumed you know more than you do. Or chose to use jargon that made getting through a paragraph feel futile.
Capture the Moment: Photography Basics with Robert Stahl
The best camera is the one you have with you, right? Not always. If you’ve ever tried to capture the beauty of a sunset, that bird you spotted on a hike, or your child’s winning soccer goal with a camera phone, the results may have lacked the magic that inspired you in the first place. But with a little practice, you can capture the moment in all it’s clarity and depth with your digital DLSR or mirrorless camera.
Following a Lead: Getting Started in Audiobook Narration
By Rebecca Lee
I’ve always been fascinated by the magic of voice-over. But while living in Los Angeles, working on a career in comedic acting and writing, I always heard that a few people in Hollywood did the majority of the work. Fast forward seven years and I’m not only recording audiobooks, but publishing them as well. How did I get here?
6 Fundamental Investment Rules
By Miles Goodwin
One of the experts that we study in class teaches us that everything you need to know to be a successful investor, you’ve learned by the 6th grade. Wall Street likes to mystify what it does so that you feel the need to ask them for advice. But the fact of the matter is that the rules are simple, easily understood, and you learn all of them in my class. Let’s start with the basics...
Sculpting a New Perspective
CJ Carter Reflects on International Artist Residency
Experiencing a change in scenery, even just a short break from regular routines and responsibilities, can inspire new ideas, perspectives, and motivation. Ceramics Instructor CJ Carter made just such a leap, taking a position as the Young Artist-in-Residence at Guldagergaard - International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark. As this summer residency is coming to a close, we checked in with CJ to find out more about this transformative experience and how it will inform their teaching.
