    Our workshops are taught by industry professionals who are visiting the program for a limited time frame. In order to take full advantage of what the program offers, it is extremely important that students do not miss class. At this time there is no penalty for missing class. However, there are no make-up classes available, and missing a class could cause your child to miss out on a valuable experience.

    We encourage students to dress for a mess! It is advised that they wear clothing that they are comfortable creating in. Close-toed shoes are required. Some inside areas can get chilly so some students may want to bring a sweat shirt or cardigan. Students are not required to wear a face covering.
