Each class provides step-by-step tutorials, handouts, and feedback from the instructors.

“We’ve hand selected our instructors, many of whom are world renown.

Now, these world-class teachers are sharing their knowledge via The content in our online classes provide the equivalent of at least a three- hour in-person class, with prompts, handouts and faculty interaction, all available 24/7 on your laptop or e-reader,” says David Pyle, CEO,

Each class you take is stored in your Class Library and you can go back days, weeks, even months later to watch the class again and again.

    Probably the mixed media canvas class, because that’s something I’m thinking about getting into. Or if there’s an art journaling class I just didn’t see, that would be the one. 🙂

    I am interested in a polymer clay class. I was intrigued by the one that shows how to make interchangeable rings. Or the carve your own stamp class. Great giveaway. I enjoyed looking over the site. Enjoy the day. Erin

    I’ve taken a couple of the metal clay classes and enjoyed them. Joy Funnell and Gordon Uyehara are great. It would be great to try another of their classes. Then again, I’d also like to try one of the polymer clay classes. So many classes, so little time! Thanks for the opportunity.
