Mission Statement

Fall Registration is Open! 

Classes in the ALC begin in September, but classes fill up fast! Register today for non-credit studio classes in ceramics, art, self-development, creative writing, music, film and digital photography, yoga, martial arts and dance. Explore a new art form or develop your passion with the ALC's low-cost, stress-free course offerings.

The Art and Learning Center is dedicated to ensuring a welcoming space for all on campus that fosters unity and diversity through learning and sharing of the arts. Instructors have all been active in their medium for multiple years with some being current students and others being nationally renowned in their fields for decades. 

All classes are open to students, staff, and the public and run during the Fall & Spring semesters. No prior experience is needed for most of the classes offered through the ALC. The ALC also participates in partnership with the community in various events (Stamp All Nighter, StampFest, Next Now Festival) and holds monthly free workshops during the academic school year.



True sustainability happens when it is embedded into our core operation. The Green Office Program
engages staff, faculty and students in a dynamic initiative that promotes best environmental practices at
the University of Maryland. The program supports and promotes offices/units that are taking steps
toward reducing their environmental footprint. It seeks to motivate environmentally friendly behaviors

by providing definitive guidelines and reducing confusion about best practices. The program operates through a network of representatives (GO Reps) in schools, centers and administrative units. The ALC is currently at the Bronze level and working toward the Silver level. 

The ALC is a member of the Green Office program through the UMD Sustainability Office and is working to continually ensure the studios operate in an eco-friendly way and that many of the workshop and course offerings that highlight the important relationship between the arts and the natural world. The ALC was awarded a grant from the UMD Sustainability Office which is being used for sustainability based workshops, training and equipment. Learn more at
