Interactive Classes Device Checklist

Why Virtual?
  • You're social distancing but need a guided creative outlet!
  • You've got a crazy schedule and can't be sure you can make it on time.  No worries, that's what the replay is for.
  • You're a devoted introvert and prefer to interact...from home.
  • You have children that would like to participate in our classes...wouldn't this be a great home schooling opportunity?
  • Watch from any device that connects to Chrome - laptop, ipad, iphone, or smart tv.  For best viewing experience, a pc or laptop works great with side by side video viewer and chat window.

Here is a quick run-through of checklists to make sure your devices are up to date and the connection is ready to stream our interactive classes.

You'll find our virtual classes listed among our other classes.

    • Pro Tip: Hearing an Echo?: If you hear an echo, you likely have two browser tabs or windows open to the event at one time. Please close the duplicate browser tabs.
