The Online Workshop Experience

How do live zoom workshops work?

These online workshops are interactive experiences. Once registered, you can access the student resources page to download the supply list and view information that will help  you prepare for the first session. Approximately one week before the workshop begins you will be emailed a reference photo and the Zoom link. On the day of the workshop, log onto Zoom using the provided link, you'll be able to see me, my easel, and the other participants. Everyone is able to talk with one another, and ask questions at any time.

Workshop recordings: The demonstration portion of each class is recorded. From week to week the recording is available to watch between classes. For the last class (and for weekend workshops) the video is available for one week after the workshop ends.

What's a workshop like?

Each class typically starts with me doing a demo, then students will work on their paintings. I can see your work and provide feedback as you paint. Depending on the day and the class, I may demonstrate again at some point. 


Afterwards participants are invited to email images of their in-class work to receive detailed feedback in the form of photo critiques. These are gentle and encouraging evaluations designed to further your artistic growth.

What if I can't attend the live meeting(s)?

You can still take the workshop by watching the recordings. You'll get all the same demonstration and instruction information, and you'll still be able to send me your work for email critique.


How to prerecorded workshops work?


There is no live meeting portion of these workshops they can be taken whenever it's convenient for you and re-watched as many times as you like within the video's availability window. These workshops typically do not include an email critique of your work.


Benefits Of An Online Workshop: 


Everyone gets a great view: During the demonstration there's no crowding, or vying for a good seat. No need to peer around the person in front of you, because every seat is a front row seat. In an online workshop the camera is closer to my easel than I am, you get a better, more detailed view than you would at an in-person workshop.

No travel time and work from anywhere: Everyone gets to work from the comfort of their own space (wherever that space may be, since you don't have to be local to take a workshop).

Camaraderie at a distance: Meet new people or connect with friends you might not be able to see right now. Workshops are a fun change of pace, and a great way to interact with people who aren't in your household.

No Worries: Everyone is safe in their own space. If you have allergy symptoms or someone else in the class has a case of the sniffles everyone can still safely participate in the workshop.

Emailed Critique With Annotated Photos (live workshops only): This has been one of the most popular features of my online workshops. Not only do you get real-time feedback during the workshop, afterwards participants have the opportunity to email me a photo of their work to receive detailed comments and notes.
