The class time includes two hours of instruction and 2 hours open studio time for the students of that class. For now it is set up to happen after the instruction portion of the first class to accommodate new students, and during the first class we can talk about what will work best, The open time could happen after the teaching time, or 15 minute set up have the class and then an hour and 30 after the instructional part. *For the format to change all have to be in agreement.
standard is for the class instruction to begin 1/2 hour after the studio is open, i teach and assist students for 2 hours then they work on their own. This helps students develop confidence and to see where they want more help.
