Please note: Occasionally, WAA documents classes and other educational events using photography and video. This is for publicity purposes and these images may be used in our promotional and informational materials as well as on our website.

Registration for any of these events at WAA or sponsored by WAA assumes permission to collect an image of you and/or your artwork and to use those images publicly to promote WAA. You may inform us at the time of registration, or inform the photographer/videographer at the event, that you do not wish to have your image taken.
