FAQs

I have enrolled in a SketchingNow course. How do I access it?

Go to My Courses and Log In. You will then see all your courses listed. Click on the course you want and it will take you straight into the classroom

How long do I have access to course content?

All SketchingNow courses are offered with lifetime access so you can return to the lessons as many times as you want.

Are the courses self-directed or live?

There are two types of SketchingNow Courses.

1. Weekly Courses

These occur the first time a new course is released. They have a defined start date and a new lesson is posted once a week.

All homework submitted to the course classroom during the designated week for each lesson will be reviewed and the comments collated into a special feedback post. This way any comments and further instruction can be more efficiently shared with the whole group. Please note: every sketch posted is reviewed but there are no individual critiques.

2. Self-Directed Courses

A few months after the first weekly course has been completed, all the lessons will be re-offered in a Self-Directed Course. All lessons will be available after registration meaning that you can work at your own pace. Each lesson includes a feedback section which addresses common queries and trends that come up as a result of the lesson’s exercises. Homework in the classroom will be generally reviewed periodically (no individual critiques) and the FAQ for each lesson will be updated from time to time.

Please note: Each course is clearly noted as either a Self-Directed or a Weekly Course. Please check the individual course descriptions for more details.

Do I need to go outside to sketch? I live in a rural area, do I need urban scenes?

Most of the SketchingNow courses are designed with an outdoor component and with the overall goal to develop skills for sketching on location. However, it is not essential that you complete the outdoor exercises on location in order to apply the concepts as there is also an indoor/object-based exercise for each lesson.

If you live in a rural area there should be plenty of alternative subject matter which you can sketch for the homework. You do not need urban scenes!
