Hello Artists! Welcome to Fall 2023 Online Art Class. Bookmark page for the class link/password, and print information for convenience. Also listed is our “Online Etiquette”, and Materials needed each week.
Etiquette for our class:
We want everyone to have a great online experience. Everyone will be muted throughout the class for optimal audio, unless the teacher asks a specific question to the class. We want to inspire, get creative, and have fun while your children draw with us online! If hopping on late to class, please keep yourself muted and try to catch-up/follow as best as you can. If not possible, we will make other arrangements. Thank you!
