Hi to All,
Thanks to Hillary Stillman for suggesting Simple Studios, 134 West 29th Street. I've already put in a phone call with them. They seem to have a wider availability for Tuesday classes. However, I would have to make an adjustment in the planned class time. For a variety of reasons, evenings rentals at Simple Studios fall into either 6pm to 8pm, or 8pm to 10pm.
I understand that for some that work 6pm would be a bit early. On the other hand, an 8pm start time for class is a bit late. I have no problem myself with starting at 6pm as my own schedule is on the flexible side. I also have no problem with having a Tuesday 6pm class at Simple Studios and repeating that class the next week on Friday at 7pm for people who find the day or time difficult on Tuesday.
LOL! Now I understand why the instructors at The Tarot School told me that one of the most difficult things to starting a class is to find a location and time that is convenient for the largest number of students that is also affordable.
Stella Liu has also suggested the Kristine Mann Library of the C.G. Jung center. It would have been a good, and free, venue if the closing hours weren't so early.
Please respond to this email if neither Tuesdays, 6pm, at Simple Studios or Fridays, 7pm, at TRS would work for you. I may be able to arrange for some make-up classes at a to-be-announced location where I might be able to accommodate a small number of students.
P.S. I'm going to go ahead and schedule the date, time and price of the first June Tuesday evening class at Simple Studios. If enough students sign up by tomorrow, I'll go ahead and book the room at Simple Studios for that date, or change the Tuesday date if I can no longer get the room. It is also not yet clear exactly how many students I can fit in the room. When I find out, I may have to cap class attendance at a certain amount. After much examining of expenses and soul-searching, I'm setting the price of the paid classes at $17.00. I'm hoping to be able to keep the price to this amount. However, if expenses start taking too much out of income, I may have to raise the cost. Payment will be through PayPal. If you pay for that first class and then find out that you just can't make that day, time or venue, I will reapply what you pay to another class that you can attend.
Thanks for putting up with my throes of planning this all out,
