here's what they said:

"Mia – I'm so happy I invested in this class. I learned so much & am eager to apply it all. Thank you for inspiring me online and in person. Keep going and take care of yourself. You have more women to inspire." – Julia Johnson




So, you want to attend... but you have questions:

I want to attend, but is this class beginner friendly?

Yes! This class is beginner friendly. You also do not have to be a graphic designer. I walk the attendees through everything, as I teach. As seen in the class video, if students require additional help – I walk around to assist them, so that they are caught up to the speed of the entire class. I have no problem with revisiting what I taught or slowing the class down for a bit to make sure everyone has it.

Do I need the design software on my laptop?

Yes, you do! When attendees arrive, they should already have Adobe Illustrator + Photoshop downloaded onto their devices. You can download the free trial version here.

What do I need to bring?

Yourself of course, LOL! – You need to bring your laptop, your laptop charger, and something to write with. Things to rememeber also:

  • Your phone
  • Your phone charger
  • If you can't see like me, your glasses.
  • A great learning attitude
  • Be well rested!
Feel free to dress comfy or dress however you'd like. Just a heads up, there will be a photographer + videographer in attendance.

When are you bringing the tour to my city?

Please join the mailing list here. You can also follow along on Instagram! Dates & times for the tour will be listed on this page, as well as registration links.

I want one-on-one help instead, can I do that?

Yes! If you're in Atlanta, GA or willing to travel to Atlanta, GA.. absolutely! We can also work together via Skype if you'd like to do that instead. We will spend the same six hours together, but one on one.. which means you have A LOT of time to yourself for learning + my undivided attention! This price starts at $1497. You can check here for availablity.

Can I record the class for myself or to share with friends?

Unfortunately, no. Attendees are allowed to take photos and quick snippets or bommerangs for their social media accounts, however, I ask that attendees not record the class.

I want to attend, but I can't pay the entire amount upfront. Is there a payment plan?

Yep, sure is! You can pay upfront and save $150 off of your total, or you can opt to a payment plan of 3 payments overtime. Your balance must be paid in full before the class in order to attend. Please note: If you opt into the payment plan, you will allow the payment process to draft the deposit from your account. (for instance: if you register and pay on the 5th of the month, payments will reoccur every 5th until paid in full.) Your information is not held by me, but by the payment processor – which is Stripe. This is done securely.

What time is the class?

Classes are held on Saturdays from 10 AM - 4PM.

It's cool, we got you covered.
