Online Classes

Due to Covid 19, I am now teaching interactive live online classes.
Online, Zoom courses and workshops are limited from 1 to 4 artists per class.
Each class has a personally applied curriculum that responds to each individual artist.
From beginners to advanced master classes we will become more confident in our processes  
and more at ease with our visual voices.
Gentle private classes are also being offered to those who may be currently 
challenged with Covid 19 restrictions.

The most important thing that you need to bring to these classes 
is a sense of humor...so together we can do this.

Question:  Why is there a discount on an e-transfer?

Answer:  There is a cost to using credit cards and paypal.  You have to leave my site and trust in sending an etransfer                  for the savings.  For those people who know me, they will feel comfortable with this process as being risk                      free.  Until we meet you may feel more secure using a credit card that can be traced.  I just like to offer a                      discounted price wherever I can.


Comment:  The Exploding Sketchbook was like an idea machine!  M.

Comment:  The Exploding Sketchbook did not have directed instruction which I found somewhat difficult, 

                   but I really liked the ideas that I came up with.  I have signed up for the Figuratively Speaking 

                   painting class.  S

Comment:  Learning how to paint expressive faces was just what I was looking for. I want to try this on my own now. S

Comment:  Paypal kept shutting down, but I persevered and was able to pay.  D

Answer:  Thankyou for letting me know.  I am looking into switching the server.  Hopefully no one else faces this challenge.
