YOU MUST BE A DESIGN BOOT CAMP LEVEL 1 GRADUATE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS CLASS.
We will spend seven weeks together focused on how to learn from other artists -- dead or alive. From color palettes to composition to value studies and beyond, you will consume the artwork of three artists of your choosing and learn how to take what you learn and apply it to your own work.
A master class with Matisse? A drawing lesson from Degas? A color tutorial from Bisa Butler? All of it is possible through a series of simple exercises and disciplined repetition. You will emerge from class with a sketchbook full of ideas (and techniques to keep generating ideas on your own) and a series of finished works of art you've created, inspired by what you've learned.
The focus here is on learning from others, but making it your own.
You will also come away with a stronger understanding of who you are as an artist and how you stand apart from other artists. Everyone will leave class with a comprehensive artist statement that they've written, along with new art, new skills, and a sketchbook full of raw data.
- Each student will work in their chosen medium and style.
- Class space is extremely limited to ensure that each student gets plenty of personal attention.
- You will have access to an online classroom for daily conversation and sharing.
- Expect the homework to be intense. This is Boot Camp after all! I've put several gaps in the class schedule to accommodate some of the larger assignments.
- Payment plans are available. Contact me for more info.
- There are no refunds once payment has been made.
Get ready to exercise your art muscles!
- "It was an awesome experience. That’s for being so thorough. I appreciate your deep knowledge and keen ability to explain difficult and/or confusing ideas with grace and patience."
- "I have so so so much more work to do, but this has been an amazing start!!! Thank you so very much!"
- "I couldn't believe how many different exercises you'd thought of to help us not just copy another artist, but also really examine ourselves, who we are, what we care about, how that impacts our art, and how our art impacts who we are. So probably the You Filter was the most useful as it was so absolutely essential to everything."
