course & program policies

Payment is accepted by any major credit card or debit card or Paypal. Registration is open for all self-study e-courses. The first time an e-course is launched it is a LIVE session. You can join in anytime. After LIVE session is complete, the e-course/online workshop is available for 24/7 self-guided unlimited class lifetime access from 6 months to until the class is retired {depending on the class}.

CLASSROOM INVITATION: Once your payment is received, an automated confirmation email with information about the e-course will be delivered. A separate INVITATION to the workshop classroom will be delivered via email automatically or before the LIVE session starts basked on what’s stated in the product description. If you'd like to use a different email than your paypal email, please add that in your notes or send me a message. The private workshop forum will be available to all class members for class lifetime access, but the discussions will close after one year. It is your responsibility to download PDF content during this time. ALL PDF workbooks are downloadable, videos are not {but you can watch them 24/7} Just a reminder, the content in your workshop is ONLY for you and not to be distributed or shared. Please respect that rule. Thank you!


I began offering online workshops in 2008. All of my previous workshops are now available for SELF-GUIDED INSTANT DOWNLOAD. I have created over 1000 HD video tutorials with hundreds of pages of colorful inspiration in 50 online workshops.

All self-guided workshop content {workbooks, digital collage kits} will be available for INSTANT DOWNLOAD once you access the classroom. All online workshops are self-study. The workbooks are yours to keep and you will be provided access to the privately hosted videosThe videos are not downloadable but your can watch them 24/7.

HOW IT WORKS : All my e-courses/online workshops are self-guided. Payments are made via Paypal or through my Shopify cart. After going through the payment process,  you will receive an automated confirmation email with a detailed materials list. Then a separate automated email with classroom access information will be sent within 15 minutes of registration.

E-book workshops are instant download once your payment is cleared and you are granted access to the online classroom. {NOTE: if you pay with an e-check it may take up to 5 days to clear}. You are limited to TWO downloads and the links expire in 14 days. Please download and save to your computer. Access information for each classroom and video passwords will be provided in the Welcome To Class PDF. 

DOWNLOADING e-books and digital kits in .zip format. You will need a program or iPad app like stuffit expander {you can download it for free} mac, PC, iOS, to open the .zip files.

what art/drawing/painting experience do I need? My workshops are geared towards beginner to advanced artists. So everyone will learn a plethora of new techniques and expand their mixed media knowledge.

how long do I have to access the online workshop content? You can access the content 24/7 from any device with a wifi {high speed recommended} internet connection. The pdf workbooks are yours to download to keep or view online. Most workshops created after 2012 have 18-month access after the live session ends unless stated in the course description. You have the option to extend your access by paying an additional fee. Some workshops have unlimited "lifetime" access to the version of the class you purchased. Lifetime access means the lifetime of the class until it retires. So if you purchased the course in 2023, you have access to that version only. If that course is taught again or is updated you will be offered an alumni discount to join the new version of the course. My original workshops from 2008 were retired after 5 years. Some of the 2009 e-courses will be retired, but you will receive notice before the classroom closes, so you can download the PDFs.

LIVE workshop sessions- If your course has live sessions, you will have access to the replays after the "LIVE session" ends. of a workshop has ended you can still access the posts, chat transcripts/replays and photo galleries. The private community discussion forums close a year after the workshop ends.

can I download the workshop videos? No, the videos are NOT downloadable. The HD videos can be accessed 24/7 from any device with an internet connection.

what are the recommended computer requirements to access the workshop content? The workshop classrooms are hosted in my private education website. Once you register, you create a personal profile/login. All the content for the online workshops is accessed in the classrooms. You need a device with an internet connection {high speed connection is recommended} since most of my PDF workbooks are up to 20MB and the videos are up to 200MB.

Each workshop has a general supply list on the class description page. A detailed supply list will be provided with each workshop. Most of my supplies are pretty simple, I use a lot of found tools. Please don't feel like you have to buy the exact paints, markers or adhesives I use. They are put on the lists as recommendations. View a general list of my e-course supply recommendations. If you have questions please email me

During the LIVE course sessions, I am available via Q & A sessions and direct message in the classroom forums. If you have a question on specific lessons, you also have the ability to post questions on the lesson pages inside the classrooms.

Please post your questions in the groups that pertain to your workshop lesson, since others might have the same questions. Each workshop {during the LIVE session} will have LIVE stream Qn&A sessions set up at a specific time. The date & time for each chat will be posted when lessons are delivered. If you are accessing a workshop after the LIVE session, please read through the discussions in the e-course classroom because most of your questions may have been answered there.
