Experiential Learning

Winter (January through March) 2024 classes will be published by Friday, January 12th! See below for more information about available classes, scholarships, and private classes.

Learn from Community & Industry Experts

Vera offers hands-on workshops for all ages and 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.

2023 course topics include our foundational workshops in screen printing, live sound, and recording; as well as new classes such as photography, poster design, and recording with Reaper! Classes are best suited for teens (ages 14 and up) and adults.

See here for descriptions of our current roster of recurring workshops.

Private Classes

Private classes for groups are available by request. For pricing and availability details, please reach out to info@theveraproject.org

Scholarships

Limited scholarships are available for students with demonstrated financial need – awards are given on a case-by-case basis when funds are available. Priority is given to BIPOC, LGBTQ people, youth ages 14-25, and individuals impacted by COVID-19, but all scholarship requests are considered.

To apply for a scholarship, please fill out The Vera Project Tuition Assistance form. It is recommended you complete the form at two weeks prior to the class you are interested in attending. Contact levin@theveraproject.org with any questions.

Class Refund Policy

The Vera Project does not provide refunds and we are not able to re-assign your ticket to other class dates. If you are no longer able to attend, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend or family member through the SeeTickets platform. You can also contact us to donate your spot to one of our waitlisted scholarship recipients.
