I'm not sure any of you tried, I'm sure some did. The instructors are very approachable when they are at their chairs and they can help you on questions about your classes. If you tell them you didn't make it in to a class they will more than likely give you a handout they used. I would think most of them would even give you some other direction. They are all very helpful and they like questions. They are their for you, to talk too. You shouldn't be afraid you might bother them. The know not every one can make it to a class. If they can't get you the help you need they probably can direct you to someone open painting that could help you. This is just my thoughts based on what I have encountered over the course of many ReaperCons.
