Online Workshops

“Lisa you offer the best online courses. Your attention to detail, efficiency, advise and resources are over the top. You deliver everything you promise and then some.”

The Anatomy of an Online Workshop

When you invest in yourself and your art in one of my online workshops, you will learn and create from the comfort of your own home and studio.

Because the workshop material is covered over a period of weeks or months vs a few days, there is time to create more art and cover a great depth of material not possible in quick paced weekend or week long workshop.  Numerous links to related material are provided for students interested in further research.

The class size is limited to ensure everyone receives ample support and feedback.  Classes are currently capped at only 10 students (and as a result they often fill quickly.)

Course content is delivered with a combination of videos, voice recordings, emails, individual coaching phone calls, interactive group discussions plus a live/interactive reviews of class assignments.

To recreate the energy and benefits of an in person workshop experience, interaction with other class members is strongly encouraged.  Many friendships have been formed in my online workshops.

Refund Policy

Class sizes are kept small to ensure each student receives ample time for feedback and interaction with me. As a result, once you have paid for a spot in a workshop, I am counting on your participation.

As a result, there will be no refunds (unless I have to cancel the class). If I am able to fill your spot from a waiting list, you will receive a refund minus a $25 processing fee.

Once you have gained access to the course website, no refunds will be given.
