The summer workshop program has operated for the past 30 years. The registration form that all parents sign, clearly states that safety comes first. If a student is distracting other students when they are in a studio classroom creating a design the instructor will ask...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Other reviewers said it was $155 for a two hour session. I went to their websites and the prices aren't posted there either.
