Refund Policy
We know things change: we’re happy to provide a 100% refund until 4 days before the start of class. Plans are irreversibly in motion after that point, so we can’t offer refunds on cancellations with less than 4 days notice.

On rare occasions, we may cancel a workshop due to low enrollment or unforeseen events in the universe. Should that happen, all students will be refunded in full.

Question from Eugenia O.
My son will graduate from high school soon he's just 16 can he attend your classes? He wanna be in the filming industry. If the answer is yes can he also take some classes that you offer on Groupon? Regards, Eugenia Ortega
Answer from Nicole C. Verified Educator
Hi there, thanks for your question! There is no age limit to take our classes. We’re not partnered with Groupon, so that wouldn’t apply. Thank you!
Answer from Karen R. Verified Student
Hello! I think that the instructor allows young people to take his class. I was a participant, not the teacher.

Reviewed by Kelvin K. on 8/15/2018
This is an excellent introduction to stage lighting! Jam packed with material, and well explained. There are lots of things that lights are doing, whether on stage or in daily life. Once done with the class, you will notice those little things so much more and be excited to try to create all kinds of looks with lights. If you ever had to deal with lights as a producer, director, or lighting designer, this is a very useful introduction.
