Register early! Workshop space is limited, and Paris hotel accommodations can fill quickly.

To reserve a place, you must send a $200 enrollment fee, which will be applied to your full tuition. The enrollment fee is refundable only if the applicant is not accepted to the workshops or if a session is canceled.

Full payment is required 60 days before the beginning of the session.

For either payment, you may mail a personal check to me in Chicago (preferred) or scroll to the bottom to use the link for PayPal.
