Optional Workshops & Seminars
The Education Series of sessions are OPTIONAL and all have additional fees. All workshop and seminar registrants must also be registered for the full conference experience and be a SAMA Member.
PLEASE READ the following… Completely before reviewing workshop and seminar options
Increase the impact of your conference experience by adding workshops and professional seminars to your Conference Registration. SAMA’s Education Committee has designed the American Mosaic Summit Education Series to address three distinct areas of our members’ development as artists: technical mastery, artistic achievement, and career success.
Please pay close attention to the date(s) and time(s) of your workshop session(s). There is no limit to the number of workshops you can attend as long as the sessions are not scheduled at the same time. ONLY Registered Attendees and SAMA Members may attend workshops.
Workshop Waitlist Policy
Sold-Out workshops will accommodate waitlists through the Eventbrite registration system. As seats come available, attendees will be notified via email with a link to register for the open seat.
Please do not contact the SAMA office regarding your placement position on the waitlist. Whether it is 1st in line or 12th in line for the next available seat, we have no way of anticipating the number of cancellations we will receive for the conference, or in which of the several potential sold-out workshops seats could appear.
PLEASE READ WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS FULLY
If you do not take the time to read the descriptions before registering, you run the risk of investing a great deal of time and money on a session that is not appropriate for your skill level or interests and goals. As we have transitions many courses to the Virtual Environment, many courses require students to source their own materials. Materials lists are listed on course descriptions or will be sent via email to participants.
