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.
What do I need to get started?
📧 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
💻 Computer (or laptop / Chromebook) - Connect on your browser using Google Chrome. 📱 Tablet (or iPad / Smartphone) - Connect using the Jitsi Meet App.
🌐 Internet Connection - Virtual classes are best experienced with a reliable internet connection. A connection may be improved by plugging in with an ethernet cable.
📷 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.
Your class is reserved upon a $50 deposit with PayPal. The balance may be paid online directly through your invoice, which is sent after you register. We accept EMT and most credit cards. Prices are in Canadian dollars, and taxes are extra.
How do I make up a live class?
Students who are unable to attend the live class will be sent a recording. They can complete the lesson on their own time, and submit it for feedback through Google Classrooms!
Can siblings attend together?
Absolutely! We offer a sibling discount of 5% if they're using separate devices, and 15% if they're sharing a device and Google Classroom account for feedback!
