Dear friends,

I would like to attend this seminar, but believe that
there is a minimum group number of 15 before it can be
scheduled. Would anyone else be interested in signing
up with me? I have included the seminar information
provided on the Art Institute's website below. I
would like to take it as soon as possible. Hope to
hear back from everyone soon.
