School Selection Criteria

Important considerations to keep in mind when choosing a program:

  • Quality programs should have a well-maintained, spacious and work-oriented studio available daily that is fully equipped for student projects.
  • Since studios can be open all hours, look for programs that provide good security for students and their projects.
  • Some schools may offer gallery and exhibit opportunities for showing off student work.
  • Students wanting briefer periods of study, or those not interested in achieving a degree or certification, might look up local workshops to see what classes might be offered.

Students who are interested in a woodcarving program should look at programs that offer fully equipped studios and security. Students may also look for schools that offer students the chance to exhibit their work in a gallery.
