Bring us to your school for a live art workshop!

Winged Canvas instructors can virtually pop into your classroom to teach an art workshop step by step that focuses on teaching visual art techniques.

Choose from one of our student-tested packages, or we can integrate school subjects into our specialty workshops for a custom learning experience!

 

Workshops are 1.5 hours in length and include learning and applying the elements of art and principles of design to a drawing, painting, or digital artwork.

How a live virtual workshop works

There are two ways we can pop into your school virtually -- streaming or video call. Don’t worry -- no technology skills are required! If you can watch a YouTube video, you can just as easily bring us into your classroom!

🔁 Two-Way Video Conference

The workshop is held “zoom-style” in a private meet
 

  • Our instructor is able to see the class (if there is a webcam on the classroom device)
     

  • Better quality option for live Q&A if there are under 30 students per class.
     

  • We use Google Meet to host the video call, or we can join your meet!

🔴 One-Way Livestream

The workshop is streamed live on YouTube privately through a link
 

  • Our instructor is not able to see the students but can respond to questions in the live chat box (if over 50 people, a moderator fee applies)
     

  • Easier option to facilitate, especially if there are over 30 students attending at one time.
