How does Online Learning Work?
Once you sign up for a course, your place confirmed within 48 hours. Before the course start date you will be issued with a password to access the 'Student Area'. All materials for your course are accessible online, you can view or print off learning materials as PDF's and access step-by-step videos and other resources. In addition there is an optional private social networking Facebook group for students that wish to participate in discussions etc. I'm available by email for general questions and support and also for Skype sessions (by request). Each course is delivered in manageable parts and at the end of each part you submit work electronically via email and receive comprehensive feedback.
Collectively these methods work to reduce the isolation felt by some students when studying a distance learning programmes.
My approach to Learning and Teaching
TECHNIQUES & THEORY: at the core of my teaching method and the building blocks for success in botanical art and illustration.
IMPROVING OBSERVATION deconstructing both the subject and approach into manageable parts and sections.
FEEDBACK: Personalised feedback is provided with digital editing of your work where necessary. Turnaround time is around 3-4 weeks. Resubmission is permitted as there is little point in moving on, if you're not ready.
INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT: encouragement and support for your individual learning needs, allowing you to develop your own style an artist, rather that teaching you to copy.
