We aim to keep our workshops accessible, so we can work within most budgets. We also allocate a portion of our budget for covering expenses for external workshops for some nonprofits and schools each year. 

Number of Students
We offer workshops for anywhere from 5-100 students!


We can do workshops at your location, at our offices in Boston and New York, or remotely through Zoom/Skype.
