Types of Courses

About SKN vertical strip 500w2

There are two types of SketchingNow Courses:

Weekly Courses

  • These are unique, one-off courses with a defined start date and each lesson is posted on a Wednesday (8pm Sydney time).
  • The lessons are put together at the time, giving me the opportunity to tweak the content to suit the group and to film an introduction video each week.
  • Step by step demonstrations from SketchingNow adventures that I put together during the period of the course.
  • There will be a private Flickr group for sharing the homework and commenting on each others work.
  • Student discussion forum will be provided in the Flickr group for lesson questions and any general sketching topics
  • Questions on each lesson will be answered in the Classroom and then summarized in a weekly Feedback post.
  • All homework submitted to the Course Flickr group during the week of the lesson will be reviewed.
  • Instead of critiques on individual work, a special feedback post addressing the major questions and issues from each week’s lesson will be published 24 hours before the next lesson is posted. This way the instruction will be more efficiently shared with the whole group.
  • A few surprises along the way!

Available Weekly Courses : New course coming later in 2016!

 

Self Directed Courses

  • A few months after the first weekly course has completed, all the lessons will be re-offered in a Self Directed Course.
  • All lessons will be available at registration meaning that you can work at your own pace.
  • There will be a private Flickr group for sharing the homework and commenting on each others work.
  • Student discussion forum will be provided in the Flickr group for lesson questions and any general sketching topics.
  • Each lesson includes additional tips and frequently asked questions(FAQ). These address common queries and trends that come up from the lesson’s exercises.
  • Further questions on the lessons and assignments can be submitted via a Lesson Question form.
  • Homework in the Course Flickr group will be generally reviewed periodically (no individual critiques) and the FAQ for each lesson will be updated from time to time.

Available Self Directed Courses: Foundations (Self Directed)


 

If you want to find out more about  the Foundations course, I wrote these three articles on my blog to explain how many of the concepts I was implementing in my own work at the completion of the course.

Part 1: Sharing the framework
Part 2: Beginning the Sketch and Balancing Line and Colour
Part 3: Heading out on Location

You might also want to check out my Foundations Friday series, where I revisit each lesson and explore some new ideas related to the content.
