What You Will Learn

Course curriculum

The structure of this master class centers around bi-weekly meetings where at least every other one introduces a topic that will be presented. Others will mostly be Q&A sessions. These will often be cutting edge and presented to work with the community to finish them. But, just as often, they will be highly refined. In most cases, a Miro board will be included in the lesson to use in your work. Each topic will be led by Al Shalloway and/or Joshua Barnes.
