We are pleased to offer this class online using Zoom video conferencing. The hope is to mimic, as closely as possible, what normally happens in our classrooms at the Athenaeum. Of course it will not be exactly the same, but in this time when many of us are experiencing anxiety and isolation, our hope is to continue to provide enriching experiences of artistic growth and community building, just in a different format.


The technology to make this happen is actually surprisingly simple (imagine a group FaceTime or Skype meeting). You only need a computer (phone or tablet) with a camera, microphone, and internet connection and we are here to help you should you experience any technical difficulties.


Once you register, look for an email with more information and detailed instructions in the week preceding the class start date.


Stay safe and be well! And thank you for your continued support of our school.
