Master Class Schedule & Fees
The Master Class fee is 420$ (380$ for YBA students) in total for 4 days (8-11 Aug 2019), 3 hours per day (2 x 1.5 hour sessions). There will be a 3 hour break in between the two teaching sessions. The students are encouraged to stay at YBA for this time as well. Our school will be closed for the duration of the Master Class, so our second studio will be used as a lunch and social room for the group that is on break.
We will have multiple teachers and admin ladies there at all times to supervise. That means that you can drop off your child before the morning session and pick them up after the afternoon class finishes.
The students should bring their own lunch each day.
The classes have the following age requirements:
- Junior class: 7-11 years old
- Senior class: 12-18 years old
