Time commitment

Studio C meets weekly for 12 weeks. Sessions are either 2 or 4 hours long. "Open Studios" are hour-long one-on-one sessions with your Studio C facilitator.

Because the Studio C experience is about learning new skills and applying them out in the world, teams should expect to spend approximately 20 hours working on their project outside of sessions.
