Here are just a few of smiling faces we saw on Lessonface. It was wonderful to be connected virtually!
Beautiful student work from Jen Swearington’s “Double Dip Shibori” virtual dyeing class.
Here’s what folks had to say…
“It is heartwarming to see so many returning and new students sharing their creative work during the Virtual Closing Ceremony. It feels like we are here together in the Community Room again.”
“The closing ceremony was spectacular. The music played, the poetry reading, etc. was wonderful.”
“Lots of creativity here… not only in the classes and student work but also in the online program and ceremony as well.”
“Kudos to the Folk School for finding a way to bring its gifts to its students via Lessonface! Dana Wildsmith’s writing class last week was nearly as good as the real thing. Missed, of course, were the camaraderie and the beautiful campus–I asked Dana for a photo of Harvest Room–but even when we return in person, the togetherness won’t be the same for a while. The virtual class interaction and instruction were nearly as good as in-person.”
“The folks at Lessonface have been very helpful and pleasant to work with. The Zoom sessions they’ve hosted to help Folk School instructors have been very useful. When emailed, they have responded in very good time. I was a bit hesitant at first about how the on-line experience with them would be, but quickly realized that it would be a positive experience”
“I just want to say the online painting class with Bradley Wilson is absolutely wonderful!! I hope you all will offer more online classes, it’s a real treat.”
