Upcoming Zoom Classes

Hello & thank you for your interest!

Due to the pandemic, Beth Ann is not scheduling any in-person classes or events at this time. But the fun isn’t stopping!

Beth Ann will continue to offer interactive online Zoom classes, with registration directly through this website starting in May or June 2022. You do not need to be a local to join in. 🙂

You can scroll down to see a few examples of previous Zoom classes – new dates and new topics will be published on this page as soon as they become available. Sign up here to stay in touch.

● You can register and pay for Zoom classes securely online.
● A link to the class supply list will be available below each class description.
