LET'S CREATE - FOR PARENTS ONLY
Are you a parent and feeling the hunger to create again or want to start creating, but not sure where to begin or how? Let's figure
it out together!
In this workshop, the hope is we can start to set
realistic goals and clarify next steps to help you create the work you
want to create while also recognizing the time needed to be a parent.
Taught by me - A MOM! So I get it.
Assignments will be given. Work will be expected to be written and
read. And if your kid(s) wants play in the background, get on camera or
have a melt down while class is happening, you couldn't be in a more
supportive place. This also will carve out time, if you can, to make
time for you!
There is work outside of class, preparing sketches for
presentation in every class and viewing sketch videos. This online
course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
Please check to see if you have the compatibility requirements for utilizing these
programs before registering:
