Reclaim your creative mojo with me no matter where you are in the world. Using Zoom to join one of my new online art classes is super easy - really! Once you register for the class you're interested in, I will send you the link to join and then you're just one click away from participating! You just need a laptop or Ipad and a space to create (kitchen table works.) Unwind, tune out the craziness of the world and create your own colourful world with me and kindred spirits. You need no prior experience to enjoy my new online art workshops
If you have never participated in online togetherness in this way, fear not, for it is truly very easy to do - and so much fun to be creative with others in this way. I was amazed how good the first session I ran online was - and I love that my teaching ability has now expanded worldwide! I have made some workshops at different times, for people in different time zones. All times below are local to Alberta or Mountain Time (MT) so check the equivalent time for your location. All workshops will have a limited number of people to provide the right amount of group camaraderie as well as individual attention. Due to the current world situation I have discounted the price of all my workshops.
I look forward to seeing you online!
