                                                                           HOW IT WORKS
These are live classes that are taught from Michiko Studios in midtown Manhattan. Students can attend in person OR over the Lessonface high performing video conference platform. Students who attend in person will all be considered active participants. Online participants have the option of actively participating or auditing. Active participants, or attendees, will have the opportunity to submit work for feedback, and ask questions and demonstrate to the class. Auditors will watch and listen online, but not ask questions or submit work for feedback. Students can connect to the online platform using a tablet or computer with reliable internet. To actively participate students also need a webcam. The live sessions are recorded so that all enrolled students and auditors can review the class sessions following the live class. Class recordings will be available for viewing within 48 hours of the live class.
