If you would like to try one of our workshops, click "WORKSHOPS" on the black bar above.  We would love for you to join us in the classroom.  Our classes have either four or two instructors and that is very different from what you will find anywhere else. Four different styles, four sets of tips and shortcuts and four teachers that will take you step by step through their take on the project. That's like 4 classes in one.
