For my HOW TO DRAW online classes, your children will be taught step by step instruction in drawing a variety of topics. For my KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP series, they will learn to make their very own comics. Supply list will be given via email the day before class, but all supplies are things you have around your house.

Using the power of this new fangled thing called, "the in-ter-net", my online classes are effectively a live video phone call with your child. I use Zoom and a high speed internet connection, and with the help of a video switcher program, I have two cameras on my system that I show. One camera is facing down at my desk so your child can see what I'm drawing, and the other one aimed at me for back and forth conversations.
What you need to have for online classes with me and your child:
1) A device like a laptop, desktop, or tablet that has a webcam attached to it. This way I can see your child and their artwork so I can offer advice with what they are drawing. Mobile phones do not work for this as they are too small and your child won't be able to see what I'm teaching as easily.
2) High speed internet is a must.
For right now my classes are only taught to students in the United States and Canada. Please CONTACT me and tell me where you live and I'll see if I can work something out! The biggest hurdle to this is time zone differences and whether my credit card payment system will accept payments from your country.
Please visit my PRIVATE GROUP CLASS page and register there.
On that page, whoever is organizing this group class needs to fill out the registration form to start the process. There are options in there that will tell me this is a private group class. You will pick a date/time in the registration process, and finally you will pay for your children.
Next, let the other families know what class you picked along with date and time. Then, every other family needs to fill out the registration form and select "Previously scheduled class." They will then enter your name in so I can connect the dots. They will then also select the class you picked and pay for their own children at that time.
Once everyone has registered I will email you all at once with further class information and we'll be good to go!
If you want to see what my availability is before registering, fill out the form till you get to the date/time picker screen. Here you will see what dates and time slots are available. You can then take this info to the other families to decide before you complete the form and submit it.
Each PUBLIC GROUP ONLINE class only has ten seats available. I feel that's a good number allowing me to give a little individual attention to a student if needed without it slowing down the entire class causing us to not finish the full lesson plan.
These PUBLIC GROUP online classes are pre-scheduled by me, but will be consistently scheduled every month so you can see what will be taught a couple of months ahead. Check back on this page to see upcoming classes.
Yes, sometimes there will be homework depending on what the class is. This is due to these online classes being condensed down from their "in person" versions. I cut out several things that wouldn't work in an online setting, so unfortunately that means sometimes your child will have to do some things on their own before the next class.
There is guaranteed homework in the BEGINNER and ADVANCED KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP classes, but everything else has either nothing or very little.
Ideally you want to be somewhere where the internet is reliable and is in a quiet room. This won't work if you are in a public place that is noisy and has a sketchy internet connection. (like a hotel room, for example.)
Please feel free to CONTACT ME with any questions or concerns you have about my online classes!
For the PUBLIC GROUP classes, rescheduling a session is not possible. If you have to miss a session, please make sure to CONTACT me to let me know.
In order to get a refund for your PUBLIC GROUP class you need to cancel no later than 24 hours before the first session begins. There are no refunds if it's after that point or after the first session has already taken place (in the event it's a multi-session class.)
Please CONTACT me!
If you know you're running late for a scheduled session, please CONTACT me and let me know!
Each class will have a five minute "warm up draw" at the start of class, so make sure you arrive before five after and you'll be good. Regardless of how late you show, you will not be reimbursed for the time you missed.
In the event you missed a class, whether due to an emergency or just plain forgot, class will not be made up and rescheduled. For my KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP and CHARACTER DESIGN classes, I will email you a PDF covering what was taught for that class, so your child will be up to speed for the following sessions.
