How Virtual Learning Works

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.
