Community Arts provides noncredit classes for professional and aspiring artists, taught by working artists. We build our schedule based on community needs and interests, so we'd love to hear from you.

So get ready for another semester loaded with arts. As usual, we’re working to bring you more classes in more subjects. We’re introducing more classes across the College, and continually introducing new offerings.

We look forward to you joining our community of visual and performing artists at Montgomery College.

As a reminder, all classes are for ages 16 and older.

If you have any questions, feel free to email John Deamond or call 240-567-5806.

NOTE: Co-Listed Classes

Some of our classes are co-listed with credit classes. The two sections meet together, and students are held to the same expectations. The only differences are that non-credit students do not have to apply to the college, do not receive a final grade, and seniors can sign up at any time and receive a waiver. Co-listed classes usually have a small number of seats (2-5), so sign up early.
