Welcome to Our 7th Annual Online Art Retreat!
Tips for People Who love to Do Their Own Thing...
Be sure you have registered to attend with us. We have a site registration process that only costs $5. It allows all our attendees to have a private log in, it keeps us commercial-free, and it helps to keep out spammers. A spam free website is a happy website!
Once you get your computer, laptop, ipad or android tablet all tested out, you'll be able to hang out all summer long with us.
If you have an ipad, just make sure you have a flash-friendly internet browser or else you won't see the toolbar in our comment boxes and you won't be able to post photos, and we want you to post photos. www.puffinbrowser.com works on our ipads just great!

Take a good inventory of your art supplies to see what you already have before you go shopping for your summer workshops.
Find a time in your schedule for browsing through your workshop videos before you get started on your projects. This is why we present your classroom videos to you in their entirely starting on the first day of class. If you view everything first, you will have a good sense of your instructor's style and direction. You can come back and view your videos over and over again as many times as you like before class ends. Make notes, and ask your instructor questions while you have him/her to chat with in your classroom.
Have fun and enjoy participating. We have a ton of prizes to giveaway! We want your experience to not only be fun and creative, but memorable too. Participating with us is fun and it never includes spamming. If you hear from us at all, it is so we can keep you updated on our event announcements or, because you won a prize.
