Online Art Classes FAQ

What will be included in my Online Art Class Package?

One purchase includes a Zoom link + I.D. to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via Zoom and feature a live, professional instructor, Linda Wehrli, who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as
participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each purchase is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc.you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in
the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent
is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you
arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. You will need the materials listed under  the "Supplies Needed" section above. If you would like to purchase the supplies directly from the studio for pick-up, please email [email protected].


Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in Zoom as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more
spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

I've never taken an art class before! Are beginners welcome?

Yes! The Online Intro to Drawing Packages are ideal for beginners and students returning to art after a long absence.


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
