Who can take our classes?
LYHA classes have content created with artists under the age of 18 in mind, however can be enjoyed by budding artists of any age.
LYHA classes are to be viewed only by those students who have purchased the classes. Classes and corresponding materials should not be shared with anyone else. This is also true for the live Zoom classes.
What technology do I need for online classes?
You'll need to use a device with a microphone and a web cam that is able to access the internet. Most laptops, tablets and phones come with built-in camera and microphone these days. If you enroll multiple learners in one class, each should have their own device.Some of our classes require the use of a printer to print out materials.
For reliable video chat, the most important thing is to have a reliable internet connection. Faster is better, but most DSL and Cable internet plans will be sufficient.
If you want to test your internet connection speed, you can do so using Speedtest.net. A suggested minimum speed for reliable video chat is 1Mbps for both upload and download.
LYHA integrates with an app called Zoom as its video chat platform. Zoom works with all kinds of devices and operating systems. If you want you can read more about the Zoom technical requirements, but you don't need to - for 99% of people, it just works.
Families from all over the world are able to use Zoom, but there are a few countries or regions in which it is not supported due to regulatory reasons. You can find an up-to-date list of these countries here.

What art supplies will I need and how do I obtain my supplies for online classes?
We provide several options for obtaining the necessary supplies for online classes.
Flex-Classes - Please check your supply lists on the course page as they differ by class. Many of these projects use items that are found around the home. With that said, most of our classes use consistent materials throughout like watercolor, markers, colored pencils, crayons, or oil pastels. We provide links to items to help create a more seamless experience. Feel free to substitute any items that are more convenient for you to use.
Live Zoom Classes - Supply pick-up is available at our home office located in 90066. As this is a home office, the exact address and instructions for pick up will be given out upon confirmation of purchase of that option. Supply delivery within 5 mi from 90066 is also available for a fee. (Limit of 2 students for cost of 1 delivery)
