Fall Courses are Here

September 15–20, 2015

In addition to our outstanding schedule of summer offerings, our fall courses are now open for enrollment!

Students will build new skills and learn to hone them. Four immersive studio work days include instruction, housing, meals, and basic supplies, and small classes ensure an intimate learning experience.
