Course Descriptions

Classes are open now for enrollment as Independent Studies

My classes are open for enrollment 365 days a year for Independent Studies. I will schedule some of my classes for specific periods of time for those who want a structured schedule and to share the experience with other students. For more information, see my page that describes the difference between Scheduled and Independent Study classes.

The links on this page will take you to more detailed information about each class including the supplies and tools you will need. For an overview of the basics, see the Tools and Supplies page.

Payments for classes are processed through PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to use these services. If you do not have a PayPal account, they accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. If you need an alternate means of paying, contact me at
