I designed Ingrid Creates online classes as webinars, that have close up videos of what I'm creating, to guide you, step by step- it will almost be like you are sitting next to me in my studio.   I think that's really important, don't you?


My main focus for all of the online classes you will experience is:

  • to have a comfortable and informal virtual classroom that is as close to you studying with me in my studio.   See a tour of my studio here.
  • to be part of a community of other creative people here at the online school, who you can share your work and ideas with, and always feel inspired.

Hints to get the best experience when learning Online

My focus for Ingrid Creates Online Art School is to 'Share, Learn, Inspire and Create' in a supportive and creative community.  This school is set up with an international community who can access my learning community, making this a different classroom environment from in-person classes.

While you might be learning from your home or studio, and you are participating in regular or POD courses, you are still interacting with our community and in our forum and discussion areas.  So the usual practices of courtesy and netiquette are very important in online learning environments.
