make up policy

If you are unable to attend a class we do not offer formal make up classes. You may utilize your studio privileges to make up the hours and in some cases you may be able to attend a class that meets at another time during the week. Hand building students who miss a class will forfeit the project for that week. If Indigo Fire needs to cancel a class due to weather or staff absence there will be a make-up class added to the semester that meets on the same day and at the same time as the original class.
