Q_Do I have to register for a class?
A_Nope! You can just drop in and pay with cash or check! You can pre-purchase class passes here online at publicannex.org. If you are a Provider Organization, you can also purchase a package of class-passes that can be distributed to participants in your programs.
Q_How much do the classes cost?
A_All classes, workshops are $5 each and free for all support staff.
Q_Where are the classes?
A_Currently, all of our Weekly Art Classes take place at Taborspace, and all farm programming takes place on our farm, the Side Yard Annex. We also occasionally work with different partner locations around Portland.
Q_What if I can’t afford to participate?
A_We offer financial aid to help those who would not typically be able to attend our programming due to financial reasons. To inquire about financial assistance, email everybody[at]publicannex[dot]org (not all who apply will receive financial assistance).
Q_What if I need support while I participate?
A_If you require support staff in the community, you will need to be accompanied by your support staff. We will provide your staff with direction for how to best help you succeed in the class or activity.
Q_What if I can’t make it to every class?
A_There is no penalty for absence. If you miss a class, that $5 will roll over to the next class you take.
Q_How do I get there?
A_You will be responsible for your own transportation. This will require advanced planning to ensure you will be on time to class!
Q_Do I get to keep the artwork that I make?
A_Of course! But Public Annex also offers artist representation as a service. After each quarter, a jury will select pieces to add to the Public Annex archive. We will periodically show work from the archive and the work will be available for purchase at all times. The artist will make 60% of their artwork sales, we will use the other 40% to cover art supplies and the service. Our goal is to elevate your artwork and make it seen! The artwork not selected to join the archive will be given to the artist.
