Who's this for?
This is for you. For any artist who’s looking for help in building their skills and portfolio so that they can target the markets that interest them most. For the student currently enrolled in a university program this can enhance a currently enrolled class. For the graduate who may or may not have found employment in their chosen career this can be the opportunity to develop specific skills and portfolio pieces to upgrade their career opportunities. For the self taught who are looking for a mentorship to help them go beyond the information and experience they’ve been able to accumulate independently.
How does it work?
Each course meets for approximately 2-3 hours once a week for a ten week term online. Each class can include lectures, demos, critiques, and draw overs of students’ works. Between each guided session, works in progress will be critiqued via email. Each class requires a minimum of 4 students to carry and maxes out at 10. Students complete work at their own pace and work can be carried over from term to term. Some courses may be simultaneously complimentary. In addition to specific course content, discussions are informed by current events in the professional world and by student interest.
