Online Video/Remote Learning:

Due to the evolving COVID-19 virus situation, our non-profit organization has jump-started our online virtual platform to allow students to attend remotely, and faculty members to teach from wherever they are comfortable based on city guidelines. We hope that you can take advantage of this new feature. It's still in development but we'll keep improving the service with your feedback!

We realize that COVID-19 has changed all of our lives, including how it has affected the possibility for many of us to do work. In order to support artists/instructors & arts facilities who are working tirelessly to bring virtual classes to you, and to make it financially feasible to all participants, we are asking for a contribution of $1 for each virtual class. If you'd like/can contribute more, it will go a long way to sustain us during this economy, and increase our cultural offerings!

The online class registration options are:

$1 (Block 1 option), $5/class (Block 2 option), or $10/class (Block 3 option).
If you have already paid for this class and/or have a CCCA Class Pass, your credit will be good to go for online classes. Simply E-Mail us to use your credit.
Live or Archived: You have the option to attend the class live or by viewing it from the archive below.

To join our virtual live-streamed class online:

Tune into the class 5 minutes before the scheduled time/day (7:25 pm EST), using our ZoomPro link,
Note: You can join by computer/laptop [preferred] or smart phone:
a. On the computer it's a quick installation after you click on the video link, and
b. by phone, you need to first install the Zoom App, and then click on the link.

This class will currently only being offered for online/remote attendance. Students attending remotely, can turn off their cameras when/if they wish to not be viewed by the Instructor or other Students. Either way, no video (only audio) of online Students will be recorded, so only the Instructor will appear in the archived video, with the possible exception of when the Instructor is giving individual feedback to the Students in Gallery Mode (if elected by the Students).
