Celebrating Continuing Ed Artists

Four CE Artists

Many of us are missing in-person classes but our Continuing Education artists are finding ways to continue learning and creating through virtual art classes. We are eager to celebrate their creativity (and adaptability!) so we asked students to share what they’ve been creating. These artists generously responded! We hope that their experience and artwork inspire you to pick up your drawing pencils, paintbrushes, camera, or clay and make some art.


Collage by Georgina F

Georgina F. created this collage piece, titled “Life Times,” in Introduction to Drawing with Sarah Norsworthy. The assignment was to create a piece that illustrates "how the world sees you, how you see yourself, how you really are: 3 self portraits. Your past, your present, your future: 3 articles."

"Zoom classes aren't ideal but if it wasn’t for that class, I don’t know what I would’ve done during a one-week-long period of complete isolation!” 






Watercolor by Liz K

Liz K. created this painting in Abstract Watercolors with Virginia Paquette. “I enjoyed two quarters and three classes of abstract painting classes with Virginia Paquette. My experience was all on Zoom and it worked! Learned so much from Ms. Paquette and the other artists in class. It was a supportive and friendly environment for learning.” 







Drawing by Sander D

Sander D. created this drawing in Introduction to Drawing with Sarah Norsworthy. “I started this collage when I took Introduction to Drawing in March, but didn't finish it. I took the class again online this summer and finished it. I'm glad that I did!” 







Drawing by Caitlyn D

Caitlyn D. submitted this drawing from Introduction to Drawing with Sarah Norsworthy. “This is my favorite drawing from the class because with the ability of shading we were able to bring life to our drawings. How beautiful nature can be.” 







Photo of plant by Caitlyn D

Caitlyn D. also submitted this photo she took while in Intermediate Photography: Composition and Design with Robert Stahl. “There is beauty in everything around you, no matter how insignificant it may seem. This is one of my favorite photos because it shows that even the simplest things can be beautiful.”





Thanks again to these students for sharing their art and experience with us. If you would like to share a piece you've created in a Continuing Education Arts class to be included in a future blog, please email a photo of you with your work to conted@seattlecolleges.edu.
