Mentored Independent Study

Registration for Mentored Independent Study is currently suspended through the end of April.

Now offered three times per week! Join a Mentored Independent Study group to learn new skills in a consistently supportive environment. With instructor guidance, these weekly classes allow students to explore a wide range of projects and techniques. Class-time can be used to both game-plan and work, while demonstrations are tailored specifically to each student. This is an excellent opportunity to tackle a challenging project that you need feedback on, or technical advice to execute. Basic metal working skills are required. Classes are offered both mornings and evenings. Register monthly. 

Tuesday evening, 6:00-9:00, Instructor: Juan Reyes
Thursday morning, 10:00-1:00, Instructor: Dana Cassara
Friday morning, 10:00-1:00, Instructor: Maru Almeida
