I learned long ago that trying to get someone to like you doesn't work - eventually you have to let go of the tail and then you understand real quick...or something like that.
I'm not going to try to get people to like the idea of a critique class. I'm just going to offer it and if it fills up I'll know.
Here's my proposal:
It will only be available to those who have taken the Complete or Lite SVS Illustration for Storytellers class.
These people will get an email when the class is up and running on our site.
It will only be available to the first 20 people to sign up.
It will cost $150.00
It will be held over 5 weeks meeting once/week for 2 hours each session = 10 hours of class time.
I'm thinking of beginning this class in early September.
It will be taught by Will Terry (me) and I'll have an assistant helping me.
An assignment will be given a month before the first class begins.
We will critique the assignment in class.
10 people will have their assignments critiqued the first night - the other 10 the following week.
I will do composition and rendering demos on the third week.
The 4th and 5th week will be spent critiquing the revisions.
Each class will be recorded and provided to attendees for study and in case they couldn't make the class.
Every attendee will get 20 min 1 on 1 time after the class is over on GoToMeeting follow up. This is their time to use how they see fit.
The benefit in a class like this is to see lots of work critiqued so that you can apply the principles from other students to your own projects both now and in the future.
I'm thinking of holding it on Saturdays from 7:00PM - 9:00PM MST - (9 :00PM NYC - 6:00PM Cali) and this will help some of our students in other parts of the world so that it doesn't fall at a time when they're at work.
I hope to have this live on our SVS site in as short as a week - 2 weeks.
Again the only requirement to attend this class is that you have to have taken the Complete or Lite version of our Illustration for Storytellers found here - no exceptions please. This is so I can move faster in class without having to back up each thing with a mini lesson but more importantly so we don't bore the rest of the class.
Here's what I need you to weigh in on:
1. Do you think it's worth it?
2. Does this time work for you and if not when would?
3. Do you like this format?
