Gathering Ideas

This popped up in my Google photos from three years ago. These are my friend Maria's  books. 

This photo brings a mix of emotions: fond memories but also a bit of sadness now. I miss my students, my friends, my people. I know I'm not alone. We're all riding those waves right now. 

Right now, I'm working on how to translate teaching in person to online. I am open for suggestions, feedback and input. The workshops will be videos with PDF files (as everyone learns in a different way.) The workshops will also be different than the ones I've taught previously. I am not going to just jump right in and start teaching.  This is a new language and one that I want to do well. Yes, I have taught online before (over 20 workshops) but I want and need to do these workshops differently.

I have my ears wide open for what you want (or don't want) in an online workshop. Thanks for your help and time.

What I have enjoyed most about online classes is: Well lit, 1080p filmed videos where the complete process is taught in real time. I want the teacher to not only demo but give the background thought process as to why something was done that way it was. A complete list of supplies along with color choices (I'm always looking for new color and supplies).If possible a community where feedback and sharing can happen just like that which would happen in an in-person class. "See what Jane did here she used the whatever and did this with it")

I would love to see you put more online since live is impossible right now and for me for the last few years. How you paint needs to be part of whatever you decide to do.

Thank you Pamela and Margaret. I appreciate your input immensely.
