The Æthelmearc Kingdom Office of Arts & Sciences is looking to collate Virtual A&S resources for on the KMOAS website. And for this we need your input!

Do you have a Youtube Channel?

Do you post How-To videos on your blog?

Do you have virtual DIY workshops?

If you are planning to make a virtual class but don’t have a personal channel? You are welcome to host in AEtube SCA, the Kingdom of Æthelmearc personal Youtube channel.

The help the Kingdom Arts & Sciences thrive, THL Astridr Vígaskegg recently started the group Æthelmearc e-Schola, on the Book of Faces. She mentions that in light of the recent event cancellations happening across the Known World in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, many of us are finding ourselves yearning for our SCA comraderie while confined to our homes. Fear not! For in this age, we have… the Internet.

She hopes the Æthelmearc e-Schola would ideally hold an online series of classes soon, but that it will also serve as space to host and organize online classes for any and every occasion. We are still ironing out details for which methods of presentation will be available to us, but as long as you have a smartphone or a headset and microphone, you WILL be able to teach a class, and WE will be here to help you do it. All we need right now is YOU — if you are interested in teaching a class, please email Astridr.

Virtual SCA and A&S on the Book of Faces:

Virtual SCA resources – classes and A&S displays:

We would like to offer the budding wealth of virtual classes to the populace which is not on the Book of Faces, or prefers to browse the offerings all in one place. We’re hoping to assemble a central depository – if you are planning to set up something new, please run it by your Kingdom A&S ministers (we’re home & bored too!) so we can add it to the Kingdom website and check to see if someone else is not already doing the same thing too. And you are encouraged to cross-post your virtual class both to the SCA Virtual Classroom and Artisan Display FB group as well as to our e-Schola!

As we just started collecting this material (and deal with homeschooling a bored and cooped up pre-teen) I am sure we missed resources. Please contact me via the Book of Faces, or by email, with anything you think would benefit our A&S community.

Looking forward to sharing what our awesome Kingdom has to offer in this time of need!

Yours in Service,

Deputy KMOAS
