Foundations 2014: Lesson Index

Please join us in the new Foundations classroom

 

This is the index page for the original Foundations Course. It still contains links to all the lessons but it used an old system so it’s hard to navigate.

 


I would love you to join us in the classroom for the Self-Directed version of the course. It contains all the original lessons with a few updates. The self-directed version also allows for sharing of homework  in each lesson and contains a general forum all within the classroom – so there is no need to use Flickr anymore! It’s a great place to connect with other sketchers doing the course.

 

To join the new classroom just click Enroll in Foundations on this page and use the following coupon at checkout to access the new course for free.
