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 your art skills with 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 vs a few days, there is time to create more art and cover additional topics not available in the in-person version of the same workshop. The material is covered in more depth, with numerous links to related material online for students interested in further research.

The class size is limited to ensure everyone receives ample support and feedback in the form of 1-1 phone calls, emails and formal comments on assignments.

Course content is delivered with a combination of videos, voice recordings, emails, individual phone calls, written feedback plus a live/interactive review of class assignments.

Students upload images of their in-progress and completed assignments to a private classroom website for personalized review.

To recreate the energy and capture the benefits of an in person workshop experience, interaction with other class members via the website and group phone calls is strongly encouraged.

Enrollment for each trimester will open approximately several months prior to the start of classes. You can signup for my newsletter to receive workshop notifications.

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.
