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.

Get your artwork critiqued and practice your critique skills on other artists' work! Critique is a fun and valuable process when done well, whether your work is being critiqued or you're there to be part of the conversation. Gain insight into the artistic process as you collaborate to improve an artist’s work and its interpretation. Leave the critique with new inspiration and a deeper understanding of how to analyze and discuss artwork. Critiques are guided by a working artist with a background in art analysis and the critique process. This is a free class; feel free to sign up ahead, but walk-ins are welcome. If you'd like your work to be critiqued, email us at communityarts@montgomerycollege.edu at least a day before the critique session. In-progress and finished artwork welcome. Open to participants of all levels.

Become part of a musical theater production! In this intensive 11-week course, we present two major musicals, give 12 public performances, and serve more than 5,000 meals. We look for students who are talented, willing to work hard, and have some theatrical experience. Although Summer Dinner Theatre is a college-level course, we encourage talented high school students (16+) and community members to audition as performers or interview as technicians. Scholarships are available. Students can earn back some tuition costs by working during the dinner portion of the evening.
