We expect all students to respect the property of Tesserae Mosaic Studio, Inc., fellow students, and the occupants of the Richardson Tech Center. Please be sure to follow parking laws when parking in the Richardson Tech Center parking lot. Students are allowed to park in the front or in spaces located in the rear. Ring the rear doorbell for entry.
We expect all students to clean up their own workspaces at the end of class and return all materials back to where they were found. As storage space is limited, you must receive permission to leave a project on which you are working in any on-going weekly class.
Please do not put adhesives or grout in the sinks as it will clog the pipes.
