INFORMATION ABOUT THE SUMMER SCHOOL OF ARTS
• Class size is limited to 14 participants unless otherwise noted and unless there is more than one instructor.
• Students are to be dropped off and picked up from the Education Centre on the first floor of AGNS Gallery South. There is no supervision before 8:30 am.
• Lunchtime supervision is available for an additional fee (of 10$ for members, 15$ for non-members) for full-day students only as space is limited. Students are required to bring their lunch. No peanut products please.
• It is suggested that students pack a snack for mid-morning and/or mid-afternoon. No NUT products please.
• Some programs will take advantage of the fine weather so a hat and sun screen are recommended.
• Art making can be messy so students remember to wear “work” clothes.
