Plein air workshops make use of a variety of garden areas that are accessible via flat, paved paths, as well as a variety of mixed-material pathways and varying elevations, depending on the day and subject of study each week. Indoor workshops are held on the first or second floor of Wave Hill House. The House is located along a paved route with moderate changes in grade. There is an accessible, ground-level entrance at the front of the building with a power-assist door. The ground floor and lower level of Wave Hill House are wheelchair-accessible. The second-floor workshop space (Toscanini Room) is accessible via stairs or elevator. The doorway into the Toscanini Room is only 34 inches wide; some wheelchairs will find it difficult to enter that space. The restroom on the ground level is all-gender and ADA-compliant. Additional ADA-compliant restrooms are available on the lower level and are accessible via stairs or an elevator. The instructor uses a portable speaker in all locations.
