Not sure if you want to commit until you learn more about how these online workshops work? Workshops are self-paced. You participate when you want. A month prior to the start of each workshop (there are 3), you can visit the workshop page for a supply list. Registering is optional, but if you create an account you can get an email reminder, participate in the forums (where participants and the instructor can answer your questions), and share your artwork. Then, simply visit the workshop page for links to video lessons and instructions. The video lessons and instruction sheets will remain on the site for viewing throughout the entire year so you can follow along at your own pace, and reference the class all year long!
