Zoom is easy to use.  You need a microphone and USB camera connected to your computer.  If using a tablet or iPad, you are ready because the mic and camera have been set up and integrated. You need at least 10-15 Mbps upload speed and 3 Mbps download speeds for a good Zoom connection.  If there are others connected to your connection, your needs might need a higher speed.


Quotes from past students:

What a joy it has been to learn watercolor painting with Ron.  He is a master artist and teacher.  I have learned and practiced painting light, shadows, values and shapes in landscapes, still life, and portraits. I like the new confidence I have developed in Ron's courses. I look forward to taking Ron's next course.

Provides positive atmosphere with helpful insights that enables each student to feel valued and
enthusiastic about watercolor media (even me).

Ron was an excellent teacher – so experienced – his humor added a lot to fun to the class.  I learned much about values and color.
