Welcome to the Balzer Designs Classroom

Hi! I'm Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and I've helped hundreds of students make the kind of art they want to.

My goal is for you to get the results you want long after class is over.  Towards that end, my lessons cover both HOW to get things done and WHY.

What are the different types of classes?

Self-Paced Online

Learn in your pajamas and on your own schedule!  These are self-paced classes with no expiration date.  You have 24/7 lifetime access to all class content once you make a purchase.  Enjoy high quality video instruction and a comments section where you can ask questions and interact with other students.  There’s also a Facebook group for students.

Video Lessons are clear, concise, thorough, and carefully edited to give you the best art education possible.


My art classes are fun, fast-paced, intensive learning experiences. I encourage you to ask questions and I love to geek out about art supplies and exactly what they can do.  I share a ton of techniques and ideas during each and every class and teach until the very last possible minute.  At the end of the day, you’ll be tired and full of art ideas! 

I hope you’ll join me.

Live Online

I offer live online classes via Zoom.  It’s shockingly similar to taking an in-person class.  I’m a well prepared, knowledgable, thoughtful, and fun teacher.

To see my current offerings, please use the button above.  You can also join my weekly mailing list to be the first to know when new classes are open for registration.  Please contact me if you’re interested in a custom live online class for your group or business.

Private Coaching
& Instruction

Private coaching sessions are conducted over Zoom and may be recorded if you wish.  You can sign up for one session to help with a specific problem or set up a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly appointment for ongoing coaching.  It’s your choice.

I coach clients on both art and “business of art” matters.

Monthly Membership

I offer three levels of monthly membership: Basic, Maker, and Super Learner.  You can easily upgrade and downgrade your membership as your needs evolve.

Membership is a great way to meet other creative people, learn tons of new techniques, find out about new art products, and get your art questions answered.

Be sure to check out all that membership has to offer you.

ScanNCut Club

If you want quality ScanNCut instruction with brand new content every month, ScanNCut Club is for you.

You get THREE ScanNCut tutorials every month — a project tutorial, a technique tutorial, and a livestream where you can get answers to your questions. PLUS you get access to all previous content when you join.

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn't uncertainty. It's openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.” ― Tony Schwartz
