Student Achievements 2013-2021
Making the switch to a new website hosting site is never easy. I had been with my previous provider since 2013, and while l liked some of its web design features, the platform was just not keeping up with the current technology. During the course of almost 10 years, the studio's news blog became filled with a multitude of student achievements, and not wanting to lose all of those blog posts, I decided to collate them into a document to share on this new site. If you'd like to know more about the studio's history, read on to see what our past students have accomplished!
