Can I take just one or two classes?
Yes and no. For our professional regular courses such as Essential Basic Course and Designer's Course, you need to register for the whole course, which is usually 8 weeks. When we name the classes as "course", it means it is a series of classes that should be registered as one. You can choose any individual class you would like to attend, when we offer it as "workshop". We designed the workshops as one day or two-day classes to focus on specific topics. For the attendance policy, please see here for more detail.
