Frequently Asked Questions
We cycle through several disciplines over the course of a year.

We got you.
We do offer stipends upon completion of the apprenticeship of most studios/tracks. If the track you are interested in has a stipend it will be during the apprenticeship phase of the studio; the training phase is unpaid. The apprenticeship phase is roughly $12/hr. The exact stipend amount will be advertised during recruitment.
