Q: Do I need to be a rocket scientist to access and participate in these new-fangled online workshops?
A: Nope. If you can type letters into some boxes, you’re good!
Q: But you can help me if I have computer questions, right?
A: “Dammit, Jim! I’m an artist, not a computer genius!” No, you need to understand your computer system and how it works, how to download, save and print PDF’s, how to adjust your volume controls, how to watch cute kitty videos, etc. I cannot provide technical support in that arena…nor would you want me to. I might blow something up.
Q: Okay, so how does it work?
A: Once you have clicked on the payment button, you will be taken to the PayPal website and instructed how to pay. Even if you don’t have a PayPal account, you will be able to pay with a credit card through their site. Once you pay, you will receive a registration confirmation email with more information about the workshop.
Q: Can I download the videos?
A: Nope, but you will have “lifetime” (which means as long as I am able to physically and mentally administer my classroom website) access to the videos AND you will receive written instructions of the project to keep forever and ever and ever…
Q: May I share my passwords to workshops?
A: Sorry, but no. Please do not share the passwords with your BFF’s or sell them on EBay. It is not fair to me nor is it fair to the other registrants who paid to be here.
Q: May I teach these workshops, now that I have paid good money to learn how to do all this stuff?
A: Again, please respect that these are my ideas and that this is my livelihood… I have a kid to put through college!
Q: May I share/sell the written instructions? How about the collage sheets?
A: Uh…no. Please see above reasoning…
Q: May I sell what I make?
A: Sure! Just please do your best to take these ideas and put your own spin on them to create something unique to you…
Q: I know you can be overwhelmed and underwhelmed, but can you ever be just whelmed?
A: I think you can in Europe…
