Welcome to Continuing Education! Breaking the Ice Since 1970 How often have we huddled up and debated the existence of the “Seattle Freeze?” Are locals really that chilly to new arrivals in the community?

There’s a surefire way to ward off that chill: register for a Continuing Education class this winter and discover ways to create, discuss, explore or exercise in the company of like-minded people. Warm up to new ideas with Continuing Education.
