How many people will be in each class?

Each of the teachers will be bringing their style of work and incorporating it into a 3 hour Journey where you will learn new ways of working with Maya Road products along with other products. They will share with you some tips and tricks to make your Artistic Journey a success. Peeks of the classes will be posted about 1.5 to 2 months before the event.
