Over the past five years, we have been fortunate to host several of the industry's leading artists and teachers from around the country.  In addition to hearing such a high level of artistry, studio members are able to interact with the guest artists in masterclasses and private lessons.


Due to precautions related to COVID-19, our weekly seminar class meets virtually this semester.  The silver lining is that we are blessed to have a wonderful slate of Guest Artists joining us each week to share their stories and advice.
