Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How "advanced" do I have to be TO TAKE
A. Not very: some exposure to the broad edge pen and familiarity with
Q. Homework: how much is there?
A. Generally as much as you can commit yourself to. In an ideal world it
would be great to shoot for a couple of hours a day. Knowing that everyone
doesn't live in that ideal life there is no "punishment" for not getting
homework done. People who signup for this course genuinely want to improve
themselves and intend on doing the work. Sometimes, however, other things in
life take priority for a while. In these intervals be encouraged to come to
class and just do the best you can. Know that by being in class: being exposed
to the skills taught and other students works and support, a tremendous amount
is absorbed that you can practice and apply down the road.
Q. Once I sign up for the year long course am I committed to it?
A. Yes. There is a maximum enrollment of 20 students for the class. If
there are more than that (a waiting list) then a person can drop out forfeiting
only their deposit. The financial viability of the course depends on people
keeping their commitment.
A. From city to city it varies because of the very different cost in
airfares and classroom rental. However, tuition generally averages between
$1,200 to $1,600 per student. Payment is made to the class coordinator for that
city, usually: $100 deposit, at least _ tuition before the 1st class in January
and the balance soon afterward.
Q. What does the class coordinator do?
A. Quite a lot actually - makes the whole thing work! See home page "For
Course Organizer Info....Year Long Course".
Q. Do I get college credit for the course.
A. Usually not. Special arrangements have been made in a few cases by some
students with local colleges to get credit.
