Course Overview


Do you like art? Then grab a chair and sit with us, we are going to spend some amazing weeks together! Whether you're into drawing, 3D modeling or photography, this workshop will ultimately train your brainstorming, design and storytelling skills.

This workshop is all about being creative and creating art together, and most of all training to adjust to different situations, which will be especially worthwhile for those of you who want to learn how to think 'out of the box' for your own future projects.

Each week will be different to the next, and no workshop will be like the previous one. Each workshop will have new exciting subjects to create with new exciting people in attendance!

Webinars and live video sessions are happening on weekends, and we might even welcome some very cool guests depending on what subjects we are covering that week.

Gone are the days of every student having their own thread, in "Let's Paint" once a new subject is unlocked all students will share one thread to exchange their daily postings. Once a new thread with a new subject is ready, you can post your stuff there and talk about it with your peers and the Instructor.

You will receive feedback on your art and paintovers, and improve your brainstorming skills through in-depth contact with your instructor and the group.

Curious to what your assignments might be like?  And why might you need a camera? (Any cellphone camera would do, too).

Here is an example, and your entry assignment for this course:

Go outside and take a picture of a car you like. Use that car to design a mech that is going to roam free in your city.

You are free to decide if you will only be picturing the mech alone, or if you want it to interact with the buildings of the city. Shall you be more of the organic type, you could also let your mech look like an animal or creature.
