WHAT IS ZOOM?
Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with video. Zoom users can collaborate on projects together while viewing each other online. ZippyZoomArt.com utilizes the Zoom conferencing tool to connect with you during your online art classes with us. To learn more you can visit the Zoom.us website.
ZOOM IS FREE TO DOWNLOAD & USE IN YOUR DEVICE
You will automatically receive an email from Zoom once you have selected and paid for your ZippyZoom Art Class. You will also receive a separate email your Confirmation Receipt for the purchase of your Art Class from ZippyZoom. (for me ...note any other doc , links or receipts)
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have your art supplies in your possession before your Zoom Classroom Meeting with us begins. For your convenience, we have organized the art supplies you will need.

NOW LET'S CONTINUE WITH ZOOM...
When you receive your Zoom Meeting Invitation your next move is to use the text link in the email. It will open up to a page that looks like this. If you have not yet downloaded the App. You'll also notice a link at the top of the page that says Join! It's free! Take the time to Sign Up Now. This way you'll have the App on your device well before your class takes place.
Click on the link you received Via Email to join the class.
For the first few minutes of class, students will be "un-muted" so that they can converse with the teacher. Then all students will be muted as a group so that there won’t be any distractions from background noise in your home or wherever you are connecting from.
If you need to ask a question during your class, you will be able to un-mute yourself.
Once the class starts, you will see the teacher on the screen in a large box and then several smaller boxes containing the other students.
ZOOM Online Meetings start and come to completion in a punctual manner.
ZippyZoomArt.com is only responsible during scheduled classroom appointment times.

Smile, You are on camera! Video cameras are always on and focused during class time. Point your camera on you, the art piece you are working on, or both for the duration of class.
Do not keep your personal photo/icon, a blank screen showing only your name, or the camera focused on a blank wall or an empty space in your surroundings.
We are in this together. Just as it is important to see your Instructor on camera, as he/she teaches your class, it is equally important for your instructor to see you and your artwork to assist in your progress.
Not adhering to this protocol is unacceptable.
