Learning Environment Expectations

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


  • Be respectful to others. Disrespectful or rude behavior is not tolerated under any circumstances.
  • No judgement, everyone should feel free to ask questions or share their work without ridicule.
  • Do not disrupt discussions or lecture. Set up your studio equipment after the lecture, demonstration, or wait until any group discussion is over.
  • 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!
