Framing Nature ONLINE COURSE

£70.00 - £100.00

Lesson release dates: 26 Aug - 6 Sep 2024
Continued access period: LIFETIME.

SYLLABUS: This course zeroes in on the use of my thumbnail sketching and viewfinder technique, specifically for observing and considering nature at a variety of scales. From simple en plein air sketching and detailed drawing, to exercises focusing on large scale aerial and topographical views, this course will give you scope for developing landscape ideas in numerous art and design contexts.

FORMAT: a new session (ten in total) will be uploaded to a course page on my website every weekday at around 9am UK time (GMT or BST, depending on month) during the dates you select. Each daily session will include a learning objective, topic overview, contextual description, and video tutorial. In addition, two short bonus films, with briefs for weekend activities, will be shared on the two Friday afternoons. Once content is activated, it will remain accessible to you for the lifetime of the course. When I eventually decide to retire the course, I will email and give you four months notice of its removal. You therefore get the pace and rhythm of a real-time course, with the benefit of recorded content being replayable repeatedly anytime regardless of time zone or schedule.

ACCESS: I will email a link and password for the course page on the Friday before your course commences. Please be sure to type your email address correctly, so your access email doesn't go astray. If you haven't received your access link and password 48 hours before the course commences, please check your junk folder and/or email me at [email protected].

PRICING: The concessionary price is offered on an honesty-box basis. If your income is low, for whatever reason, please select concession. No explanation necessary.
