A ‘Live Broadcast’ is approximately an hour and a half of instruction by a well known artist/instructor that you can view on your computer screen LIVE ! (also known as Real Time) You choose the instructor, you choose the class day and time. Once you decide, since there are a limited number of seats available, reserve your place by adding the Live Broadcast to your Shopping Cart or Member Account. We will then email your confirmation and log in code. At the appropriate time and day, go to www.artacademylive.com, click on ‘Join Live Broadcast’, enter your log in code and you are immediately connected to the Live Class. The artist/instructor will know when you log in. However, you are free to ask questions or make comments at anytime by typing them on your keyboard! What you enter is seen by your artist/instructor and will be responded to on a first come – first serve basis.
Live Broadcast Classes may be purchased individually or by Art Academy Live Memberships. Prices will vary depending on topics and artist/instructor and will range from $25.00 to $40.00 per 1&1/2 hour class.
Critique sessions are always very popular and will be very limited seating.
