Adult Classes (Ages 12+)

Our Adult Class program was designed by Lori Slocomb, our founding studio instructor.  As a former university professor, Lori teaches our studio classes in the same manner, level and structure as her former college courses except they are broken into flexible, once a week sessions for 6 consecutive weeks.  This flexible scheduling always students to begin and continue their education at their own pace within a purposefully structured curriculum.

Note that some of the more advanced classes may require completion of beginner-level classes or teacher's permission upon portfolio submission.  If you're new to the studio, we recommend starting out by reading our Adult Program Overview.
