theres plenty of other workshops run by people with much better track records, with way more instructors, that are much cheaper to attend.
its great you want to give back to kids and do this stuff, i dont think anyone would argue that, but you need to stop acting like jasons workshop is the only thing out there. sure, its gonna be nice for people in england and close by to have something accessible to them this time around, but its not the only recurring workshop or event. ive been to plenty.
another fun thing to point out-
the last time i went to a workshop jason was in charge of, there was a massive open bar and live music opening night, then a private party for pros and instructors in a hotel he had comped for them.
i wonder how much of my 600 dollars i paid to attend went towards his paying for shit that had nothing to do with my art, education, or learning- and in the case of the private party- actually SEPARATED me from the people i had paid to come see?
other people who throw these events dont do these kinds of things. jasons notorious for it.
