Workshops

COVID: Due to the current health situation, all participants are required to wear masks (covering their nose and mouth) during in-person workshops. A face shield on its own or a tied bandana are not sufficient. The participants and instructor will do their best to maintain social distancing during the workshops. If you feel ill, or have been exposed to someone who is ill, please stay home.

PRICING: Workshop prices vary depending on the host organization’s pricing, whether or not the location has NJ or federal arts funding, and/or is a private business.
