Penn State’s Center For Arts & Crafts Reveals Fall Events

Penn State’s Center for Arts and Crafts (CFAC) has announced a lineup of various classes and workshops for the fall semester.

Opportunities for both in-person and individual activities are available for students, faculty, and staff throughout this semester.

While the individual activities can be picked up and completed at any time, there are two sessions of in-person workshops. Session 1 begins the week of September 13, while Session 2 begins the week of October 25.

The CFAC has once again created various “Take & Make” projects for those who may not be comfortable with in-person workshops or want to work at their own pace. These projects come with all of the supplies that you will need to hand-paint a wall hanging or even create your own pottery.

Additionally, there are several themed Art Activity boxes that contain up to eight projects within them if you want to keep yourself busy throughout the whole semester.

There is also a wide variety of in-person workshops that can meet from one to six times in a session. An entire category of classes focuses on using recycled materials to create something new, while crocheting is a popular technique featured in new classes. Other unique classes include making handmade soaps, hand lettering, wood burning, and even jazz dancing.

Penn State students receive a heavily discounted price on all workshops provided by the CFAC, so take advantage of the many classes that the Center for Arts and Crafts has to offer and tune into your artistic side this fall.

To register for any of these classes, head over to the CFAC office. Its headquarters are located in 003 Ritenour Building, open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
