Virtual Class Technical Requirements
Participants will need a computer or tablet with a webcam, microphone, and speakers. Connection is via Zoom, a web-based cloud platform. A test connection prior to each scheduled lesson is encouraged. An email with special instructions specific to each class series will be sent one week prior to each series start date. The email will include a Zoom invitation that allows registered students to log-on and join the class.

JOSLYN ART CLASSES for preschoolers, youth, and adults are offered year-round. Class themes are inspired by artworks from the Museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions and incorporate visits to the galleries and gardens into the art-making process. Classes are lea by accomplished artists and art educators from the community who are eager to share their artistic insights and technical skills to beginning and advanced artists alike. Subjects and themes change with each season; winter-spring, summer, and fall. Areas of focus include art fundamentals as well as unique art-making experiences related to special exhibitions.
