This week I've had the pleasure of painting along with the lovely Danielle Donaldson in her online class creativeGIRL: the land of light and shadows. I followed my tried and tested formula for online classes as follows:
1. Copy exactly what the instructor offers for at least 2 projects.
2. Play with any materials they use that appeal to me in a non-structured/non-results orientated way in my journal.
3. Don't do any art for at least 24 hours.
4. Come back to my journal and use at least one of the techniques and one of the materials from the online class with the materials I love to use and a subject I love to paint.
Do you join online art classes? How do you make what you learn there your own?
