Earn credit for the classes you take!

Manifest now offers C.E.U.'s and graduate credit through Ashland University. Continuing education is essential for artists and educators to hone their craft, learn new techniques, and remain at the top of their artistic game. Why not be rewarded for your hard work and creative pursuits? Take advantage of our Continuing Education Units or Graduate Credit for any instructed class at the Manifest Drawing Center.


A continuing education unit (CEU) or continuing education credit (CEC) is a measure used in continuing education programs to assist the professional to maintain his or her license in their profession.

Manifest is strongly committed that its various programs should serve to raise the bar on standards of quality and learning in the visual arts. Our organization's staff are eager to support professionals in furthering individual advancement along these lines. Our Drawing Center programming is designed largely as a multi-faceted continuing education program for mature learners of all ages and levels.

C.E.U.’s are credit units awarded for ten hours of participation in any of our instructed classes. Let us know in advance if you need C.E.U.’s for a class you will be attending. A certificate will be provided upon completion.

The Manifest Drawing Center has partnered with Ashland University to offer graduate credit to students enrolled in our courses. Anyone who has completed an undergraduate degree is eligible for graduate credit. Students must attend and participate fully in each class. Students will work with the instructor on their specific goals during regular one-on-one critiques. Upon completion of the class, the student will write a brief paper describing how this class and credit will impact their professional development.

Course tuition is paid to Manifest Drawing Center upon registration via the Manifest website. If you are interested in receiving graduate credit, please email Manifest Drawing Center here before the start of the course. The graduate credit fees are in addition to the course tuition, and are paid directly to Ashland University by way of their official representative on the first day of class. Graduate credit fees per credit hour are listed below.  After registering for the class and emailing Manifest Drawing Center, students will be given a link to register for credit with Ashland University.
