Safe Start Studio Access Program  

Together we can protect the health of all users and prevent the spread of COVID-19. The following Safe Start limitations comply with local guidelines and will be applied in conjunction with Pratt's Safe Start COVID-19 Mitigation & Response Plan. Preexisting Studio User Guides, which dictate the proper use of facilities and equipment, will remain in effect as well.  

We are counting on all users to follow all guidelines without exception. Failure to comply will result in immediate suspension of access privileges.  

Conditions for Access: 

Anyone interested in utilizing studios or equipment independently via the Studio Access program must display proficiency in using our facilities safely and correctly. To become a Studio Artist and access Pratt studios independently, users must meet the following criteria:  

  • Successful completion of Studio Access Proficiency Test  

  • Current membership at Journeyman level or higher  

  • Signed Liability Waiver Agreement form on file 

  • Signed Studio User Code of Conduct Acknowledgement Form 

  • Compliance with all regular and Safe Start policies, protocols, and procedures 

How to Become a Studio Access User: 

1. Call or visit the Pratt Front Desk to pay the $25 appointment fee* 

2. A Studio Access Coordinator will contact you via email or phone to schedule appointment for orientation and/or Studio Access test 

3. Pass a Studio Access Proficiency Test 

4. Become a Member** 

5. Turn in signed Acknowledgement Form & Waiver 

6. Start using the studio! 

*Upon successful completion of the Studio Access Test, the appointment fee will be credited to your account for application towards your first studio access.  

If you need to cancel and reschedule an appointment, you must email the Studio Access Coordinator at least 24 hours in advance.  

If you fail to show up for a scheduled appointment (no call, no show), the $25 fee is retained to cover Pratt’s expenses associated with having a coordinator on-site. If you want to schedule a new appointment you must pay another $25 fee. 

**Minimum Journeyman level. Annual fee required.
