If the COVID-19 pandemic is under control and sanctions are lifted we will hold in-person classes this summer.  However, we are busy making back-up plans for remote or online learning should it come to that. Either way, graduate courses in arts education are available. The Pulse is not bound by the June 15-July 10 dates, and we may opt to extend our course offerings later into the summer.  Please keep checking our website and Facebook for updates or contact

The Heart of the Program

The Creative Pulse embraces critical thinking processes and habits of the mind, enabling our students to develop, refine and integrate these processes into their own thinking and learning abilities, as well as those of their students.
