Experiential Learning

From screenprinting to audio recording, Vera offers hands-on workshops for all ages and all experience levels, taught by expert members in our community. With each class, you will build skills necessary for volunteer and professional opportunities at Vera and in the music industry at large. Until further notice, all workshop participants are required to wear a mask and provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to gain entry into the venue. Please stay home if you have been exposed or have any symptoms related to COVID-19. Thank you for understanding and contributing to a COVID-free learning environment! See Vera's COVID-19 policies here.

The Vera Project’s educational opportunities are driven by our hands-on programming and committee feedback. 2022 course topics include our foundational workshops in screenprint, live sound, and recording; as well as new classes such as photography, poster design, and digital audio songwriting! Classes are best suited for teens and adults ages 14 and up.
