Participating in the Courses

Studio Arts Reps are encouraged to dabble in the class, off to the side, but are asked to defer to the paying program participants when asking questions and seeking the instructor’s time. You are primarily responsible for assisting at programs and may not necessarily expect to see and /or participate in all aspects of the class sessions. Studio Arts Reps who feel they missed enough of the program that they would like to be assigned to it a second time are welcome to request it again.
