Re-Boot Camp


RE-Boot Camp 3-in-1: The Power of Craft! was a smashing success with a packed house.

Here are some of the comments from participants:


“This is fantastic!”

“The best online session I’ve been in.”

“Totally unique content.”

“Can my critique group members watch the videos of these sessions, too?”


Because of the great response to our Re-Boot Camp, we are now making the videos of the three sessions available to those who were unable to attend. For $45.00 ($55.00 for nonmembers) you will have access to the videos of the presentations through October 14, 2020. You will learn about:


  • * The Power of Visual Storytelling with Fred Koehler

Once you are registered, you will receive an email with the link to the videos as well as the handouts that accompany the three presentations.
