PLEASE REGISTER AT LEAST ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE: Pre-registration is required for all classes and students are only registered when payment has been received. In order for instructors to plan properly, students should register at least 1 week before the start date of class. If you register less than one week before class, the class fee will increase by $10. If a student is paying for the class through our website, no registration forms are needed and an email confirming receipt of payment and registration will be sent within a week. Registration forms are only necessary for those students who wish to either mail their payment or deliver payment directly to the museum. For a printable version of this registration form click here.
