Classes

Classes meet in the artist’s personal studio, creating a rich sensory experience. Class size is limited to four students per session, allowing for individual attention and instruction. This approach means that students of different ability levels are grouped together, and courses of study may be begun at any time.

Class sessions last for three hours, and meet once a week, at the following times:

Thursdays: 10:00 AM-1:00 PM

Fridays: 9:30 AM-12:30 PM, 1:00 PM-4:00 PM

Saturdays: 10:00 AM-1:00 PM
