NOTE: This is an intermediate-level class. Drawing experience is a prerequisite. (Start with my "Sketching & Watercolor: Journal Style" if you are a beginner.)
Check out some of my handmade mixed media journals HERE.
And, I give honest yet positive critiques. I can tell you what can make your page better without hurting your feelings!
Q: I‘ve never or rarely drawn or painted with watercolor.
A: This is an intermediate-level class, meaning your feel comfortable drawing and painting. I'd suggest you start with "Sketching and Watercolor: Journal Style" first. (You can see a small sampling of student work from that class here.)
Q: Do I need to be on my computer at a certain time of day?
A: No, the lessons will be released once a week but you can access them anytime, once they are released. And past lessons will be available during the course and you may post anytime during the 9 weeks the class is online.
Q: Is the content downloadable?
A: The videos are not downloadable. The class 'disappears' when I close it down.
Q: I can't access my computer during one of the weeks of class.
A: The lesson will be there when you get access to your computer and you can post the lesson anytime for the duration of the class.
Q: How many pages will Jane comment on?
A: You can share as many pages, from each assignment, as you like. Jane will comment on each and every one during class.
Q: I'm not very comfortable with the computer. What’s involved?
A: You'll need to be able to photograph or scan your sketchbook page as a jpeg. You will then upload it, from your computer or iPad to the online lesson. There is a video when you start class, which explains how to use the online classroom. And support at Ruzuku (the classroom platform) is very helpful! You might want to watch this video by Ruzuku to see how the classroom works.
Q: Do I have access to the classroom and videos forever?
A: No. The classroom will close a few weeks after the last lesson is released. I like to create a community of students and comment on each and every posted page, so the classroom time is limited.
