Streaming Note: This class will be live streamed for remote students to be able to watch the instructor from home. We will have a release form for you to sign the day of the class and in exchange for the release we will grant you replay access to the class for you to watch from home if you want to review something from class. If you have participated as a live student in a streaming class before, we have changed our setup to be much less interfering with the live class but still gives great access to our students that can't make it to Tucson.
