My online classes...all the details :)
I just finished a new page on the blog giving all the details about my upcoming online classes! Yea! :D The first class starts February 18th. I am accepting payment for class fees via PayPal, Visa & Mastercard by phone, and USPS money order (the last two options are reserved for U.S. residents only). Even though these are online classes, I am limiting the class sizesbecause I can only handle so many students per class. The classes are filling up quickly, so be sure to send your payment as soon as possible to reserve your spot.
We're gonna have sooooo much fun! Can y'all tell I'm all excited!!!!!!!! There will be high quality video demos (not hosted on YouTube because of their file size restriction) for each weekly assignment....in real time just like you were all standing around my table watching me demo in a regular in person class. They will be posted on Mondays and you can watch the demo video demos at any time during the week. We'll have a live chat once each week and there will be a Flickr group for students to post pictures of their class artwork. The Flickr group also has a private discussion board so the students will be able to talk amongst themselves without time restrictions which will be extremely helpful for those wanting to connect with other students who are taking the class. Participation in the Flickr group and live chats are encouraged for the full class experience, but are not required.
I'm trying my very best to make this as close to an "in person" class as I can. Having taught glass beadmaking for many years, I know full well how important it is to actually see how a teacher does something rather than only reading about it in a written document. Gosh this may be even better than an in person class....it's not like you can pause the teacher and rewind her if you miss something, huh? LOL!
Well I've stayed up waaaaaaay too late the past few nights trying my best to get all this info ready and get caught up on emails, shipping, and the like. Oh and speaking of being behind....I was running a couple days behind on shipping prints/paintings out this week, but as of this afternoon all orders have been shipped for the week! So if you made a purchase from my Etsy shop in the past week, your order is on it's way!
G'nite y'all! xoxo
