  If you are interested in taking this course, please email me at and provide me this information:

The email address you wish me to send class instructional handouts to.
After you register, I will send you a Welcome Email and Google/Blogger will send you (at my request) an Invitation to join the Class Blog where the class will be held. Watch for BOTH of these emails, check your spam folder. If you do not receive by Monday morning, email me to let me know.
This is an ON-LINE internet class. 
You will need to follow some simple instructions to register and gain access to the private class blog. Your name and email will need to be entered; but NO social security or credit card information is required. Just basic information to "recognize" you as a class participant.
Since the class blog is Hosted on a Blogger does work best with a G-Mail Email address...but others have also worked just fine. If you do not have gmail, it is possible that you could need to set up a temporary account...just to get on the blog. I can still use your "normal" email to send you homework assignments.
You will need to be able to take PHOTOS of your work, and UPLOAD them to the class blog. You will get instructions on "blogging" so don't worry if you don't currently do that now; you will learn.
But, you DO NEED to have an operating camera and be able to take photos, AND save them to your computer. So, you do need a basic understanding of how to save these photos and then retrieve those picture file for uploading.
If you take photos with an Iphone, Ipad, etc. then search for the free APP by has helped many students with fast uploading directly from their device to the class blog. I do not personally have any of these Apple am not much help at solving those "techie" problems.
NOTE: You will be given class handouts/instruction in the form of emails and pdf documents.
 The pdf files can be opened with Adobe Reader (free software on the site)

 You need to be able to open these handouts/instructions and save them.
You can also print as you desire. In total, the course contains over 200 pages of paper/printer will be required if you want to retain a hard copy of this information.
Hugs, and I hope to see you in the class!
