Student Grade vs. Professional Grade
- The basic rule when deciding between "student" or "professional" grade products is to buy the best that you can afford. The phrase "You Get What You Pay For" is very true with art materials, especially with paint and brushes.
- Talk to your instructor if you have questions.
There are no refunds for missed classes. Please be sure of your availability to attend classes before signing up.
