2020-2021 Classes

This year, due to health and safety guidelines given by our local government and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) all students and faculty will be required to wear masks. We will also be limiting the number of students in the classrooms and introducing distance learning opportunities for each of our classes (see the information at the bottom of the page).

Wrap Sweaters are also allowed for students to wear during class for warmth if needed: $28
