Due to an early end to the school year and an overwhelming number of early registrations, we've decided to extend the early registration deadline to Friday, June 10th. If you've registered, you've already received an invoice that needs to be paid by Friday, June 10th in order to receive the 10% discount. If you didn't receive one (or have been putting off registration until the end-of-year dust cleared), please let us know. You can register anytime, but you only have until Friday to receive the 10% discount.
For more information, Download the 2016-2017 Registration Form, call, or email. Existing students don't need to complete a new registration form. We already have your info on file, and can hold spots, and take tuition payments over the phone or online. As always, check the online calendar for start dates, summer camps, workshops, and everything else. Call or email if you have any questions. Thanks!
Register and pay tuition before Friday, June 10th for a 10% discount on your first quarterly, semester, or annual tuition payment. Although the 10% discount is nice, you only need to pay the $40 registration fee to hold a class or lesson time.

Summer Art: Life Drawing Workshop For Adults!
Posted by Jamin Rathbun on 05/06/16.
Join me (I'll literally be taking this workshop) for our first art series created for adults (or very serious teens). Our Life Drawing workshop will walk us through the tips and techniques necessary to translate what our eyes see to what our hands can create on paper. For those of us who have undeveloped talent or unfulfilled interest -- this series is a great way to invest in both.
This 16 hour workshop (taught by Christopher Allen Boyd) will progress from gesture drawing techniques to full figure drawing, and will include live models (fully clothed, so it will be appropriate for older teens). The class will meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 from May 31st through June 23rd. Tuition for this series runs $160. All materials are included. Space is limited. Shoot me an email to hold a spot.
