Classes—2019

In 2019 I will be offering the following classes. 

Links in a class description will take you to a registration form where there is additional information about that class. Links to supply lists are also included in the class description here and on the class registration page.

If the registration page is marked “closed” please check back on the listed “registration opens” date. Two dates are important to remember and distinguish between. The registration date is the date the classroom opens for registration. There will be some pre-class material available on that day after you register. The class starting date is the date when the first lessons will open.

It is necessary for me to open my classes in this fashion because registered students need time to gather the suggested supplies.

Note: Registered students in the following class sessions will have access until at least December 31, 2020. (I will continue to extend access to registered students past that date, as long as I can support the platform with new registrations. I will notify past students on a yearly basis. New students registering in 2019 students will receive over 1 year of access (depending on when their course begins). Return to the classroom and rework the lessons during that time to build your skills. 

For information on how access may be extended please click on this link to read my information page.)

 

For additional information about my classes and how they are structured please read this page.

On-Demand Classes—Join Any Time

By Design: The Intentional Page: Based on a 1-day in person work shop I created 15 years ago, this self-guided class includes over seven hours of video demonstrations and instruction packed with examples from my own work. This class will teach you a vocabulary for understanding the printed page as well as the hand-drawn page. Read more about it at the link provided. There are no required supplies for this class so there is no pre-class handout. The class is packed with topic handouts and resources. US$39.99  

Here’s a little video about this class—just ignore the dates and access information.

Examples pamphlet books.

The Simple Pamphlet Book: Join this FREE, self-directed class at any time. In this class I walk you through the tearing and collating of paper, the cutting of a decorative paper cover, and the sewing of this structure. These are simple and quick books you can make regardless of your skill level. Work on paper you love in a size and format you desire! (There is no pre-class handout for this class. Since it is free you can join risk free and start making a shopping list based on what you want to make.)

April 2019

Warm up sketches and a quick study of a puffin made while drawing from life at the Como Zoo in St. Paul.

2019-April-Drawing Practice: Drawing Live Subjects in Public Registration opens on February 28, 2019. Registration closes on March 30, 2019. The first lesson begins on March 31, 2019. (Registered students are encouraged to watch the pre-class sections as soon as they register, to prepare for class.) US$135.00

A new lesson appears each Sunday and Wednesday of this class. There are exercises and approaches introduced to help you develop the necessary skills to work quickly and accurately while sketching live subjects in public. In addition the daily drawing practice helps you build a solid drawing practice foundation. Class also introduces ways to silence your internal critic, develop your editing eye, and set realistic goals and create a plan to implement them. Click on the class title link above for more information about this class. Click on this link for a downloadable supply list for Drawing Practice. Note that while there is a list of suggested supplies it is possible to work through the majority of the class with only paper and a graphite pencil. (Students doing that would simply work on values when color is introduced in the classroom. Don’t feel that you have to spend a lot of money for supplies to build a daily drawing habit of sketching live subjects!)
