Prepare the following materials to have with you for this training.

  • Black pen or pencil.
  • 8½ x 11 paper or a journal for writing.
  • Oil pastels or crayons.
  • Colored markers (wide-tip are ideal).
  • A couple sheets of large drawing paper (18″X22″ is a good size). If these aren’t accessible to you, tape smaller sheets of paper together.
  • Optional: Musical instruments, costumes, scarves…


In order to participate fully, and to allow for the highest level of participation, you will need to have the following:

  • Laptop or desktop computer. This training will provide instructions for using Zoom on a desktop or laptop computer. Although it is possible to lead Zoom meetings from a tablet or mobile device, you will be limited in what features and functions you have access to. We will be providing instructions for how to use the Zoom features on desktop devices. Also, for the purposes of this training, a computer or laptop monitor will enable you to better see and engage with the workshop content, as well as with the other participants. It is also ideal to have a device with a physical keyboard.
  • Zoom Desktop Client. On your device, be sure to install or update the Zoom desktop client Version 5.3.1 for Mac, PC, Chrome OS or Linux.
  • Zoom account. Create an account for yourself with Zoom if you do not already have one.
  • Webcam, speakers, and microphone. Mostly likely your device has these elements built in and ready to use. Make sure that they are working properly on your device and on Zoom.
  • WiFi. When possible, connect to the internet with a physical cable connection, not just Wi-Fi. This will give you much greater speed and service.
  • Power Source. Be sure to have power for the entire 3 hour session.


  • Space. A quiet and distraction free space to work in with a bit of room for some physical activities.
  • Lighting. Make sure you have a stronger source of light in front of you than behind you, too much light behind you and you will appear as a silhouette.
  • Headset. A headset will greatly reduce the chance for feedback and improve your voice quality. Headsets that connect via USB are the best choice.
  • Location. Wind and background noise makes your device’s microphone adjust and your voice may sound muffled. Also, don’t have anything behind you that may be distracting to those who are on the other side.
  • Close Other Applications. This will maximize processing power of your device to improve the quality of your Zoom session.
