How does the online course work? A week before the course starts, you will receive by email, the first week’s curriculum and other information to get you started.

A live conference call kicks off each week on Sunday evening, at 8:30 pm EST, using the conference site Zoom. Just click on a link in your emailed materials to join the conference at the designated dates and times. The conferences will be recorded, for those that cannot attend, and a link to the recording will be sent the next day by email.

A private Facebook group will be set up for the course group. During the week, anyone in the course can post questions, images, assignments, etc. Nancy will comment daily on your posts, and other artists in the course will be encouraged to comment as well. You will get maximum feedback on your work!

Not everyone is using or likes using Facebook. However, this is an easy and great method for the group to work together. Contact Nancy for advice on how to minimally use Facebook with this course, if you are adverse to it.  At the end of the course the Facebook group and all posted material will be deleted for privacy.

  1. Dear Nancy,
    I want you to know how much I love and admire your work and have four years since the very first time I saw it. I wish I could be a part of your class but because I live overseas the time would never work for me.
    ( plus it’s a bit over my budget).
    But still I wanted to let you know how much I wish I could join your class and maybe if you ever have an online class that could be bought and seen at anytime then I would be able to take it. Thank you so much you’re an incredible artist🙏❤

    1. Hi Beth,
      Thanks so much for taking the time to write. I appreciate your kind words on my work. Sorry the course won’t work for you due to time constraints. I do have some overseas artists taking the course. The only time commitments for the course are the once a week live conference meetings. These meetings will be recorded so you don’t have to attend. The main part of the course is the daily interaction. By November I will have another course available that is not interactive, covering everything you need to know about acrylic painting. This all-digital course contains 30 videos and two books. The entire course gets downloaded to your computer all at once, so you can learn at your own pace. Thanks again for getting in touch.
