As I announced via e-mail earlier in the week, registration is currently open for my Ancient Art Around the World eCourse (with a 20% off discount with the code YOURARTTEACHER). I’ve had such a great time creating this course, and I am very proud of it. The students currently enrolled in the course have given me some great feedback!
