We want you to be comfortable and relaxed so that you can enjoy our new online classes.  Each class will last 2 hours, with time for questions and interaction. We’ll be using Zoom, and will send full instructions beforehand so you can be confident with the technology. In each module, I will demonstrate different methods and you can practice alongside and ask questions as we go. Classes will be limited to 10 people so I can give students individual attention.  You will need paint, sponges, brushes and a practice board or paper to work on.
