As a result of the 2020 pandemic and a requirement to social distance, I worked to create a wonderful selection of online classes. The format works really well and I have received lots of positive feedback from students. In addition, teaching online allows me to teach workshops anywhere in the world!


My Online Classes follow the same rigorous attention to detail and planning as my In-Person classes. Many students say that ZOOM sessions help them concentrate and learn effectively since their attention is more directed. As an instructor, I feel the same way - the fluidity of toggling between demos, lecture, presentations, group critiques and one-on-one work sessions is extremely efficient and powerful.

ZOOM art courses are a fun way to learn art skills, techniques and receive one-on-one instruction in the comfort of your office or home.

As an educator, my goal is to inspire you to listen, watch, practice, learn and graduate from a course with a new set of art tools that excite you to explore on your own. Detailed syllabus and handouts provide a well-defined road map of the course; live demos, active discussion and in-class exercises prepare you for class-specific homework assignments. PLUS, daily group art shares and interactive critiques provide a perfect way to review and reinforce skills, techniques, tools and tricks.

  • Five 3-hour or three 5-hour class formats 

  • Live lectures, instruction, demos, discussion,
    in-class exercises, individual and group critiques,  homework
