The ASUW Experimental College is a wonderful school offering hundreds of great classes in all kinds of subject areas, including drawing and painting, writing, acting, filmmaking, cooking, business classes and dozens of other subject areas. It has a history in the area that goes back to the late 1960s, and some of the educational experiments that were going on at that time. It really is an experimental program with a different attitude. It's been part of the Seattle community for decades, and provides a sense of connection and community for both old timers and newcomers to the area. If you look at the school today, and go back in time, you'll find some of Seattle's most notable people teaching there. The classes are high quality and most are taught by working professionals in their fields. Definitely check it out. It's an experiment that works.
