Welcome to Continuing Education! Shaping Artists Since 1970 “An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo.” - Seth Godin Art is more than a painting. We’d venture to say that art is learning, making, and creatively applying new skills, no matter the medium. An elegant spreadsheet, a small business strategy, or your autobiography, art can take many forms. The canvas is up to you. What will be your act of artistry this Spring?

FRED HOPKINS I started my bad movie career in 1971, when I co-founded The Vintage American Cinema Society. Instead of showing the usual pop-oriented movies like “M.A.S.H.” or “Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid,” we showed Fred Astaire in “Let’s Dance” (with a live performance by a gaggle of tap dancing tots) and “The Ghost of Frankenstein,” starring Bela Lugosi (with a live intro by “The Count,” local TV horror host and legend, Joe Towey). To my discombobulated amazement, we drew huge crowds (and this was 9 years before the general public discovered Ed Wood!).
