All online painting classes will meet using Zoom the video conferencing system. The online class will have slideshow presentations, painting demos, paint along with Wayne, and critiques. Students will have access to download a video file of the painting demo to refer to so they can paint along at home at their own pace.
The classes will have slideshow presentations, painting demos, paint along with Wayne, and critiques.
Painting demos and paint along
Painting demos will illustrate practical applications of concepts from slideshow presentations. Painting demos will be recorded. Students can choose to either paint along with Wayne during the Zoom class session or sit back and watch the demo and take notes. Then later, they can paint along the recorded painting demo video at their own pace.
Painting demo recordings will be available for download approximately 1 hour after the demo ends. Wayne will send an email with the link to the video. Because of Zoom’s space limitations, each video will be deleted in 48 hours in order to make room for new painting demo recordings. If a student wants to paint along with the video, he/she is responsible for downloading the video before it’s deleted.
While the painting demo is being recorded, students’ images and voices may be recorded if a student asks a question. If a student does not want his or her image to be recorded, the student needs to turn off his or her video when asking a question. If a student does not want his or her voice to be recorded, the student needs to ask questions using the chat feature.

For students who want a critique, they need to email a photo of their painting to Wayne at least 12 hours before the critique class begins.
