Housing is provided at no charge during the program in a shared dormi­tory build­ing. Meals are also provided at no charge when the Peters Valley Dining Hall is open. Assis­tants have the oppor­tu­nity to partic­i­pate in each work­shop in their studio, subject to the needs and require­ments of assist­ing instruc­tors and students. They are also given one free work­shop in any studio and oppor­tu­ni­ties to sell and show their work. Assis­tants will also have access to and use of studio equip­ment during class down­time.
