"I want to reinforce the need for Craft Enrichment in our community. I personally have met folks I never would have met in our community without CE. From teenagers to folks in their 80's this has proved to be invaluable to many. We are republicans and democrats, we are religious and non-religious, we are young and old, students, faculty and staff. There is a wonderful comradery within CE." - Fall Online course Participant

"I loved this class! We logged on early and left late and had a wonderful time learning! As strange as it was to learn painting without the instructor right there, the video demonstrations worked well." - Summer Online course Participant

"I am a pottery person for YEARS! I miss my peeps but this course will help me develop my imagination for pottery imagery." - Fall Online course Participant
