Learning Environment Expectations

When learning a new hands-on skill, social learning occurs where we all learn from each other. Please help us create a safe and supportive environment where we can share information, have open discussions and learn from one another.


  • Be respectful to all others. Disrespectful or rude behavior is not tolerated under any circumstances. We reserve the right to dismiss any student for misconduct or any disruptive behavior without the obligation to issue a tuition refund.
  • No judgment; everyone should feel free to ask questions or share their work without ridicule.
  • Do not disrupt discussions or lectures. Set up your studio equipment after the lecture, the demonstration is over, or wait until group discussions have ceased.
  • Turn off cell phones or put on vibrate. If you need to take a call, please step outside the classroom so others can concentrate or hear the instructor.
  • Bring a willingness to learn or, at a minimum, a sense of humor. Attitude is everything!
