Online courses are coming!

If you’ve wanted to take a class from me, but I haven’t come near where you live, here’s some good news: I’m working on some online classes! I plan to launch the first one, “Tyvek Explorations,” this spring. “Painted Pet Portraits” is next. Which of my techniques would you like to learn online? Let me know!

There’s more information about the Tyvek Explorations class on the classes and lectures page.
