Most Frequently Asked Questions
For a detailed overview of how our classes work and how to enroll, please see our FAQ page.
When can I register for a class?
Each instructor has their own class email list. We’ll announce the launch date for each class as soon as we are close to the final edit, so be sure to join the respective email list and/or follow us on social media. Once a class is open, you can sign up at any time – there is no deadline and no limit on the number of students.

Our classes are streamed on our sister site (powered by New Zenler software). When you select the Courses Site tab above, or click the Enroll button, the sister site will open in a new tab.
When you Enroll in a class (using your email address), you will be asked to create a password. After you check out, you can watch the class immediately. The process is automated and does not require human intervention!
