ABOUT OUR PROGRAM WHY DRAW? OUR INSTRUCTORS STUDIO CALENDAR DARKROOM CALENDAR

REGARDING IMPACT OF REQUIRED SOCIAL DISTANCING ON MANIFEST PROGRAMMING

While we work to ensure that all studio-based events can be held safely (allowing for proper social distancing, requiring masks for all participants, heightened cleaning procedures, etc.), many of our programs will continue to be offered online via Zoom meetings and/or other forms of creative correspondence.

New courses and programs that are available immediately or enrolling soon are listed below. Programs with gray backgrounds below are still being revised, but will resume as soon as all logistics are finalized.

Our people are hard at work developing new offerings to maintain Manifest's culture of creativity, aspiration, and learning during this uncertain time. New programs will be posted below, and shared via email and social media as they become available.
