Classes

  • Credit Options

    The Worcester Center for Craft in a partnership with Worcester State University is now offering Graduate Credit as well as professional development points for all Worcester Center for Crafts Studio classes. These classes meet the requirements for content based courses for re-licensure.

    How does the Credit program work?
    If you’re interested in Ceramics or Photography, contact Tom O’Malley . Contact Gale Scott if you are interested in courses in Glass. These Center staff members have Masters of Fine Arts degrees and extensive experience teaching. Both are adjunct professors in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Worcester State University. As such, they can serve as Worcester State University Professors and advisors as you take courses and/or complete a certificate program.

    A minimum of two weeks BEFORE registering, you should consult with Tom or Gale to develop goals, learning activities, and criteria for grading which will lead to choosing the correct Craft Center courses.

    In general, two six week Craft Center courses are necessary to earn 3 graduate credits. Formal critiques will be scheduled at mid- term and at the end of the semester. Your study will include additional studio time and a research project planned in consultation with your advisor.
