Each month Pony Education hosts intensive hands-on workshops at our education center in Oakland, CA. We fly in top education talent for 2 days of work on real models.
Workshops start with 2 live demos in front a small group of students. Students are encouraged to get involved and ask questions.
After a short break, students are assigned models and we work through group consultations. Our two educators each support 6 students max as Pony Studios staff rounds out the comprehensive support system.
Students leave with confidence, friendships, and a custom Pony goodie bag!
