Live Online Art Classes: How They Work

This video summarizes how easy it is to register and get started with virtual learning!

Virtual Art Classes are LIVE.

Most online classes are pre-recorded, and that's a one-way output where feedback is limited. All of our virtual classes are interactive, and held LIVE through password protected video conferencing. Because our classes are not pre-recorded, each classroom is as unique as the students in them!

Feedback is key to growth.

 

Our students receive individual feedback and critiques -- either live, through screen share, or during the week in Google Classrooms. 💬 This feedback loop is the key to artistic growth because it offers insights 💡 on where to improve, what to practice, and how to reach your goals. This is an example of a private online critique from our Cartooning & Anime class:

Virtual Class Platforms


We're currently using Jitsi Meet video conferencing to bring our virtual studio to you. We use Google Classroom to update our students on art resources and materials, and individual feedback on art assignments and critiques.

💻 Computer (or laptop / Chromebook)

🌐 Internet Connection


Virtual classes are best experienced with a reliable internet connection. A connection may be improved by plugging in with an ethernet cable.




📧 A Gmail account


This is used to access Google Classrooms (this cannot be an existing school or work account). Upon payment, we'll send you a code to join the class. Sign up for Gmail




📷 Web Cam (optional)


Webcams allow students to face time their teacher and show their progress live. Students may turn off their cameras whenever they choose, and still interact through voice or text chat.




🎧 Headset (optional)


A headset includes headphones and a microphone and allows for better sound quality, reducing sound feedback and echoes. Students may mute themselves whenever they choose.





What do I need to get started?

Can siblings attend together?

How do I make up a live class?


If you miss a group class, or join late, a recording will be sent to you so you can make it up before your next class. Your teacher will be available to answer questions and provide feedback and support through Google Classrooms throughout the week!
