May-June- July  2015 CLASSES

Project vs. Process Classes: There have been some recent disappointments relating to leaving some classes without a completed project, and in most cases,it has been a misunderstanding of a class being a process based class rather than a project based class. To simplify things, future class listings will be designated as either process or project classes. Process classes are those that focud primarily on acquisition of a new skill or technique and which generally do NOT result in a specific completed work. A project class will focus on a completed or nearly completed project, during which a new technique or skill may be acquired.
