THIS PAGE: Online Workshops & Classes

Please do not ask for school or class recommendations. We don't know enough about your work, goals, budget, proficiency OR these schools and classes to make intelligent recommendations for individuals.

To include your school or classes on this page, send your or your institution's name, physical and email address, web link and very short class description(s) in an email to my latest email address listed on the Contact page. Essentially, a "who, what, when, why and where" statement will suffice, but be sure to link your site page with more information.

Please read similar listings below to get an idea of the information we need. Avoid ALL CAPITAL letters.


Classes are alphabetized by instructor names, except the newest ones.
