Nashville Community Education Annual Open House

Nashville Community Education

To kick off each fiscal year - in August - we host an Open House at the Cohn School.

Are you always on the wait list for our most popular classes? This is your chance to register early for Fall classes!

The event features our instructors, many of whom will be available to talk with the community about their skills and classes and show example projects. Alongside our instructors we have invited organizations and businesses from our community to share their great work with attendees. Free refreshments from Crème Catering will be provided alongside music from Nashville's i106.7 Van. 

This event is free and family-friendly. We would like to thank the Nashville Scene for being our Presenting Media Sponsor for this year's event.
