In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete.

Learn @ OnGrade Studio

****Covid-19 Update****
  • All scheduled workshops that require me to travel have been cancelled by the host studio(s) through May. 

  •   Some students have paid for and scheduled workshops at OnGrade in the coming months. Officially, there is no refund if you cancel your workshop and I am not cancelling anything unless groups of 2-3 become restricted. I can keep myself healthy and the studio clean.  My concern is you traveling to get here and having to stay in hotels, etc. If you need to cancel I sincerely promise to get you the education you deserve at a later date. 

  • Some of you were very close to sending me a deposit for a workshop at OnGrade that we were in the middle of scheduling. If you are in a position to make a small investment in a tiny business at this time I will still take your reservation and deposit. In the event that we can't move about the world later this summer/fall and our dates don't work out please think of it as educational credit that never expires.  Kinda like a gift certificate. 

  • Regarding re-scheduling: No one on Earth knows when we are going to be able to have this conversation so I am putting it on hold for now and am doing what I can to free up the calendar later in the year.
