Online Class Instructions

A few days before the first day of class you will receive an invitation from Tiago to join the online Painting in the Style of the Impressionists class in the (free) Zoom application. Tiago will include his email in case you need to contact him.

Watch this orientation video: How to join a Zoom meeting if you are new to Zoom. You may download and install the Zoom application at any time. We recommend you do this after you enroll in class or at least one day prior to your first online class. Choose the download option that best fits your technology. Unless you will be using an iPad or mobile device, the first option is most likely the one you’ll need.

  3. Connection is better if you close all web browsers on your computer while on Zoom.
