Arts Classes for Adults

If you are an adult searching for instruction in art, dance, theatre or music, please note that while the CAA does offer private music instruction in voice and many instruments for adults, the IPFW Division of Continuing Studies all offers many personal enrichment classes in art, dance, theatre and more. To find out more about these classes, please visit their web site for details.

Refund Policy

A full refund is given when the university cancels a course or when the IPFW Community Arts Academy receives notification of withdrawal from the registrant before the third business day prior to the start of the class. No refunds will be given after class or private instruction begins. Course cancellations may occur due to low registration. Course offerings and fees may be subject to change without notice.

Parental Supervision Statement

IPFW is a public institution of higher education that offers a wide variety of classes, to a wide range of students from differing backgrounds, including adults and children in grades pre K – 12. While the IPFW College of Visual and Performing Arts is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all students, parents are reminded that it is their responsibility to supervise minors when they are on campus and not in the classroom. Before and after class, our teachers cannot take the place of a parent and assume responsibility for unsupervised children.

In case of an emergency please contact the IPFW University Police at 481-6827.

Personal Enrichment Classes for Adults

The Community Arts Academy offers regular classes for kids in pre-K through grade 12 in art, dance, music and theatre, but if you are an adult interested in personal enrichment in these areas, please visit the IPFW Division of Continuing Studies to see what types of classes they are offering.
