About Classes

Loft Classes and COVID-19

In the interest of public health, all adult classes listed under the category "adult" will instead be offered as distance-learning classes through May 31. These classes will continue to meet at their scheduled time slots via video conference.

All classes listed as "online" will follow our traditional online class format, which include weekly assignments and feedback. These classes do NOT involve virtual class meetings and can be completed on your own time week by week.

Each class will have specific instructions for access once you register. If you have questions, feel free to call us at 612-379-8999 or edu@loft.org.

The Student Experience
Loft Virtual Classes

Students love our video conference classes:

"It works—an effective way to learn and to have questions answered, particularly during these times."

"Taking an online class helps to take your focus off of what is going on in the world and provides hope for the future by helping you refocus on writing and the joy and satisfaction it can offer you and your audience."
