How the Workshops Work

Each of our workshops consist of three live Saturday sessions and 9 hours of interactive content. Using Adobe Connect, you and instructors interact, chat, share work, and live stream traditional and digital art. You can select from three unique learning packages. The Basic Kit, Office Hours, and Mentorship packages offer increasing levels of personal guidance and one-on-one instruction. This online course will be taught live through lectures, demonstrations and assignments. Students will be given an assignment each week to put to use what they’ve learned during the course. Students electing to participate in live reviews will receive direct feedback on their specific problems which will serve as examples for the rest of the class.
