  1. Hi!

    I am a full time teacher with a BFA and MS in Film and video Production and TV Business and Management, respectively. I have been teaching mostly visual art for several years, but would love to upgrade my skills. I know I can’t volunteer for three days/week, but I also can’t pay $150/month for membership at this time. Might there be any way we could bee of mutual benefit to each other?

    Sincerely,

    Deirdre Wilkins
