Lots of demonstrations, information and hands-on opportunities. Small crowd of students. All encouraging. Engaging non-stress environment. All tools and materials included. Just sign up and walk in the door !"

What I gained in the Studio and Forum classes was immeasurable.
Learning from esteemed professionals informed my expectations .
Frankly, I'm a much more well rounded scenic for having taken classes with Jane Snow. I always recommend her forum to anyone with
an interest in becoming a scenic.
-Lauryn Pepe, USA Local 829 Scenic Artist

"I just wanted to let you know how glad am I to see that the "Studio and Forum" continues.  You are teaching a skill that probably cannot be acquired anywhere else in the country.  The main photo on your FaceBook page really took me back to a big chunk of my training and my professional life.  Thanks."
         -Fred Kolo (Kolouch),Usa Local 829 Scenic Artist/Designer, Photographer

"The Studio and Forum of Scenic Arts is an absolute necessity for anyone aspiring to become a Scenic Artist. Whether the goal is theatre, film or television, the techniques taught here provide all the necessary tools needed to further a career in the Scenic Arts.

-Michael Franzese, USA 829 Scenic Artist

"When the studio does go virtual- count me in! The classes and working at the scene shop were the most educational, challenging and fun times I’ve ever had in my art life." - Jessica Brown, painter, sculptor

 "Being in the room with deeply engaged faculty and students

at the Studio and Forum of Scenic Art  is my idea of a superb 

teaching and learning environment... an easy give and take to discussion 

 and demonstration; so much talent in the pursuit of good scenic art coming

               from both sides of the equation. I always feel humbled AND excited to

  participate in such splendid critique sessions:  eager students who WANT to learn.

                 A truly wonderful environment- and a great faculty."  -
