Here’s what Workshop Chair Pamela Seay says about attending an online workshop:
Skip the drive and paint in your PJs while getting assistance from your beloved pet! Or get together with a couple of friends and have your own painting party!
At first I was a bit skeptical about this new technology, but after being allowed to watch an online class last August, I was blown away! The clarity of the demo and the interaction between instructor and class members were amazing. If we could choose being together in the same room or doing a LIVE Stream Workshop, I would choose the LIVE Stream option for the way I could see up close exactly what the instructor was doing. There was no scurrying to get the closest seat! All you need is access to the Internet via a computer, an iPad, or even a smartphone broadcasting to your smart TV.
We have our own Geek Squad to help class members who needs assistance.
You have the option of watching and painting along in real time or closely watching the LIVE Stream, taking notes, asking questions, and painting later. The class will be recorded and available for 30 days, and you can watch and rewind and stop and go as much as you need for that 30 days. Instruction is via YouTube Live in order to get the best broadcast signal and clarity. You can ask questions in the chat area. I will be monitoring the chat along with David and answering anything I can (by repeating what David has said or identifying a paint color, etc.). I will text David with any questions he needs to answer. That way he can focus on teaching.
Later in the day he will switch to a Zoom link. Class members will receive a link by email—just click on the link and you are in. During Zoom, David can see us and we can see one another, and he will answer questions.
I can’t wait to show you this wonderful way to learn. You WILL love it. NO masks needed. NO Social Distancing worries. Save money, sleep in your own bed and snuggle with your bestie, then get up close and personal instruction from a fantastic watercolor teacher! If you have Internet issues, email me for options in finding someone to buddy with.
