All classes are in Pacific Time. Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom. If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle. If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform. If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
