These four week classes are offered as virtual online learning opportunities. Students also receive a bonus of an additional week to complete their assignments and post for comment. Our online classes are designed to provide a complete learning experience at a slower, more measured pace and without the added expense of travel and lodging. Students may log into the class blog at anytime. There are no scheduled times for the class to meet, so students may complete their work and study on their own schedules. The class blog serves as an online studio/classroom where students and the instructor can interact. Students receive one on one critique and comment from the instructor.
Our online classes include a diverse group of students from all over the United States, and often include international students from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Norway, South Africa and beyond.
Students receive a PDF of class materials at the end of each class. Students also have access to class video demos for up to one year after the class ends.

Class Cancellations. If the class is cancelled by the instructor, students will receive a full refund. If a student is unable to participate in a class for which she/he is registered, and advises instructor prior to the commencement of the class, student may receive a credit to be applied to that class the next time it is taught or another class at the same price. Once class has begun, there are no credits or transfers available.
