Special notes about this unique workshop.

Students are welcome to work and or hang out after teaching phases are complete.

For those interested I am researching the possibility of community condo living during the workshop. I am looking for places that will accommodate several people each with private quarters and a shared kitchen.  We have discovered that our workshops are more like intense spiritual retreats where artists of all walks come together and bond very quickly.  We are attempting to keep your costs down while attending the workshop.
