Grow your skills in communicating successfully with all of your visitors and customers by joining us for an in-person introduction American Sign Language (ASL) course, taught by Megan Wetzel. This four-session course is tailored specifically for arts professionals. Each two-hour session includes live interactive classes teaching ASL basics like the alphabet and numbers, phrases, and general etiquette. The course will also cover customer service information and arts-specific vocabulary.
Megan is profoundly Deaf and has been signing her entire life. She completed a Bachelor of Science in Communications and a Master of Art in Higher Education and Student Affairs. Megan is also a Certified Deaf Interpreter. She enjoys teaching others to be creative with their communication methods, to think outside the box, and to break barriers between Deaf and hearing individuals. Megan is very excited to teach this class so Pittsburghers can learn how to be more welcoming and inclusive of the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing community.
