Online Children's Illustration Class - Update
Jake and I are so pleased that our FULL class has SOLD OUT - but we still have the LITE class available. We are humbled to realize that artists all over the world trust us to share what we've learned about creating illustrations for stories like children's books and comics. What is possible today wasn't possible only a few years ago and it is my belief that we will find learning online more and more common in the coming years. To think that we can broadcast from our little town in Utah US to anywhere in the world is mind blowing and proves that if you work hard and dream BIG you can do it! The little map above shows how spread out our current enrollment is to date - but it's still growing!
How long will I be able to purchase the LITE version of the class? We will keep the video only version of this class available until July 10th 2013- the last day of the LIVE class. If you want to watch all of these classes - get the details by clicking here.
What format will the LITE class be in? The LITE version of the class will be in an MP4 or WMV file or both.
If I buy the LITE class how long can I view it? If you purchase the LITE class you will be given a download link to have the complete video files on your computer for as long as you like.
Will I get any feedback with the LITE version? No - we produced two price points to account for the time we will spend with FULL version participants - the LITE class will deliver the recorded version of the FULL class without the critiques, class questions, draw-overs, and skype call.
What materials will I need for either the LITE or FULL class? The assignments we will give will all require drawing instruments like copy paper and pencils (or tablet with drawing program). Adding color to your assignment is optional. You could use Acrylic, Oil, Pastel, Watercolor, Gouche, Ink, or Digital. I advise my students to avoid colored pencil unless it's mixed with an aqueous media like Watercolor because it takes a tremendous amount of time to build up color while controlling texture. Most illustrators avoid it as a stand alone medium for this reason.
If you have any other questions pertaining to the class I welcome them and will add them to this list if they are pertinent to participants.
