Welcome to my classes page! I teach both online classes and live in-person classes. I rarely teach the same class both online and in-person. This is my policy because I want you to always get the best value out of any class you take with me. You can also check out the instructional DVDs I offer HERE.
In-Person Classes
I am teaching a limited number of in-person classes these days. My classes do tend to sell out, so I encourage you to sign up early and often! If you have any questions about the classes or the supply list, please feel free to e-mail me.

Online Classes
Online classes are an awesome way to learn: video lessons with supporting photos and text. You get to work at your own pace: pause, rewind, and fast forward the video lessons as necessary. You can even do what I do and learn in your pajamas!

Once you purchase an online class from me:

  • You will have access to all of your classes using one url, one username (which you choose), and one password (which you can reset yourself).  
  • As with all Balzer Designs online classes, you never lose access to the class once you purchase it.
  • There are some super cool social aspects to the online classroom.  You have a profile page with a photo, information about yourself, links to your places on the web, a gallery, and a Facebook style wall where you can post updates and images that people can like and comment on.  
  • In addition, each class has its own private group where there's a message board and a photo gallery.
  • You can "friend" people on the site and gather a great little network of art-loving folks!
  • Payments will be processed automatically -- get your class login information right away.

You can try out the classroom for FREE with the online class "Stencil 101."

Art Journaling
Most of my classes include techniques that can be used in art journaling, but these are classes that are specific to the practice of art journaling.

Question: What's the difference between "30 Days in Your Journal" and "30 Days in Your JUNQUE Journal?"

Answer: Both classes are a look at 30 days in my art journal and the process of art journaling every day.

"30 Days in Your Journal" ($65) is an older class. In it, I work in a blank watercolor journal and build my pages in short ten-minute bursts each day. The narration of the videos is live. These are the techniques and supplies I used when I started art journaling every day.

"30 Days in Your JUNQUE Journal" ($125) is a new class. In it, I work in a Junque Journal -- sometimes for ten minutes and sometimes for forty. Narration is done by voice over and many of the videos are in fast forward. These are the techniques and supplies I currently use in my art journal every day.
