My First Virtual Art Workshop

Project Scientist ( is an organization whose purpose is to ignite and cultivate confidence that a STEM career is attainable for any girl. An educator at heart, I could not turn down the opportunity to work with a team of women from around the country whose mission is to expose a diverse population of young girls to a high quality STEM academy.

My challenge was to figure out how to present an art workshop virtually and in real time. I turned to Zoom, and with the help of my techie sons, I was able to provide real time demos using both my laptop’s camera as well as my phone camera for close ups.

Amid these uncertain times, its good to know that we can still connect to make art together, albeit virtually.


  1. Joanne, I am so very over-the-top excited for you! Sharing your talents in creative and purposeful new ways! In these crazy and uncertain times, your art, workshops and sharing your expertise are REAL!
