ANNOUNCEMENTS

Announcement about Studio Spaces:

It is our policy to allow you to create your specific studio space, a space that makes you feel comfortable. In doing so, we have allowed holiday lights, lamps, etc.  In order for us to be able to continue this policy, we need you to make sure you shut off all extra lighting when leaving the studio for the day. Unfortunately, if we find that the extra lighting is not being shut off, it will be necessary for us to discontinue allowing.
