    hey everybody, I'm pleased to announce the full line up for AGI! We have the pleasure of locking in all these great artists early this year so you can start getting excited for next August right now.

    Show and Tell
    Last year was the first year we did this event session and it was a huge success. All attendees are encouraged to bring samples of their work with them to show case at the beginning of the week. This is a great way to break the ice and illicite conversation. Seeing what your fellow guests make at the beginning of the week allows everyone to ask questions and promotes our motto, "We're all teachers, we're all students"

    I just want to let everybody get an update on tickets.

    We are currently at less than 20 A tickets, and about 30 B tickets. We are already past 50% of tickets sold.
    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Hey everybody!

    I just wanted to stop in here and give a brief update on where we are with remaining tickets.

    As of this morning we only have 4 A tickets left, and roughly 25 B tickets left.

    So if you were even thinking about getting a spot this year I would move as fast as possible to get a down payment in to secure your spot.

    Remember, we work on a payment program so it makes it easier to get your ticket. We know it's hard to come up with a lump of cash sometimes so we are trying to make it as easy as possible to get in on this experience.

    As always, if you have any questions you can either PM me here or call Elaine at (724) 791-2100
    Thanks,

    Andrew
