Current Class List
Loft Classes Through August 31
No classes will take place in Loft physical spaces now through August 31, 2020. We still intend to hold fall classes, and we hope to be able to offer in-person classes then, but we will continue to assess and inform as more health and safety information comes to us. Adult classes will be released on a rolling basis each month on our website. All youth classes are currently available on our website. Classes listed in our summer youth print catalog will be taking place virtually at the times listed.
The Loft has been offering online classes since 2011 using an online learning platform (called Moodle) that does not typically include live video conference meetings and allows students to login any time during the week to participate. Classes with this format will continue as planned. Classes that were originally proposed as in-person classes will have live meetings using video conferencing via Zoom through the summer of 2020, some enhanced by Google Classroom. "Online-flex schedule" means you can take the class on your own schedule on the learning portal. "Online-live" are classes offered in real time with live video conference meetings.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Testimonials from our virtual classes conducted by video conference.
"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."
"When I signed up for this class, it was an in-person class. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it turned out to be a very positive experience."
