Each course is designed to make the best use of the Online format: Displaying detailed techniques and my drawing expertise right in front of the participant's eyes.  The classes are recorded and made accessible to the students after each class to reinforce the learning content. Since the Spring of 2020, my teaching methods have been constantly reevaluated and improved to be effectively adapted to an online platform. I am very happy with the results and feel that for my medium, colored pencils, this is the best way to teach.     -Lisa
