Clean Studio Policy​​​​​​​

Keep things clean! Clean studios are everyone’s responsibility, especially if you choose to work independently. Our students and faculty depend on a clean and organized space so that everyone can maximize their creative time.

Please help us keep our studios ready for the next student group by returning all equipment and tools to their designated places after use, and always wipe down and sweep work areas. Thank you!

Safety at ASLD

At ASLD we believe that art shouldn’t be a hazard to your health. We’ve worked with local health professionals to create Safe Art guidelines. All students should be familiar with these guidelines and be prepared to follow them during both class and open studio time.
