How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There may be the use of scissors during the drawing unit. Guidance at Guardian's discretion.

We will also be taking a "field trip" to a few museums using the website Google Arts and Culture. This is a virtual tour that a few of the more famous museums around the world use to show exhibits (MoMA, Louvre, etc.). There is no need for any accounts or signing in/up from the students. It is a free website available to anyone. 
I will be sharing my screen as we navigate through specific art exhibits. 

If you have any questions about the "field trip", please let me know.
