For part 3 of my presentation of on-demand classes, I will list three of my own classes. Currently, I have over 20 online workshops, some are scheduled while others are on-demand. The focus on scheduled workshops is the one-to-one teacher help for the given time (much longer than physical in-person workshops where you only have a day or two which is shared with other students!).... but back to my on-demand classes which have continuous access meaning you can start anytime. Of course, you still have access to the teacher for help in these classes too.
Here is part 2 of this series of blog posts taking a closer look at our on-demand classes. One of the great features of our on-demand classes is that they have continuous access so you can start any time and finish any time. You also get to ask the teacher questions and see if any other student has asked questions - with answers from the teacher of course.
This November we decided to take a closer look at some of our on-demand classes. These classes have continuous access with message boards where you can ask questions if you need, however I find that the classes are so well written, often there are no questions to be asked.
In my More Abstract Art for Quiltmakers, we look at the work of several well-known abstract artists. Mondrian is a huge favorite for quiltmakers...and after I show the class how he made his way from realistic painting to abstract work, I then challenge them with the following exercise:
A number of years ago, I designed a Christmas Tree Skirt for a friend. I designed it in such a way so that I could have a number of different options included. The tree skirt base is made up of blocks and wedges to form a circular design to fit the tree. There are several reasons why I have designed it this way.
The Grid - one of the exercises from Inspired to Design with Elizabeth Barton. You can try it too or join her online workshop for even more inspiration and designing skills.
It is such a good feeling to have another class completed - it's been a number of years! I've been working diligently this year to get my latest completed with lots of writing, rewriting, creating and editing images, and making over 30 videos. I believe I counted 35 in total!
"Last week we looked at simple construction paper collage techniques for design based on some of the ideas used by the early abstractionists Sonia Delaunay and Sophie Taueber-Arp.
As Anita Eaton walks you step-by-step through her unique star design in her online workshop "Entwined Star", you will learn a lot of useful tips like selecting good fabrics and colors that will work together and how to work with bias cuts. You'll know exactly which fabrics to use and which to leave behind in your stash!
I love seeing new classes coming into production and have a number coming this year including one that Linda Schmidt is working on. She calls is Skyrockets in Flight. It's all about fireworks and how to create them. Here's a sneak peek at the finished product. Isn't it amazing!
