How is tuition structured?

Each course features short streamed videos. The number and length of videos vary with each course. You cannot download the videos but can watch them repeatably during the course.

Instruction is often illustrated by photos, diagrams and step-by-step examples of my art to explain concepts and procesess.

Exercises are designed so that you can try out techniques and approaches.

Each course has at least one final assignment (textures has 4) to bring together everything you have learnt. Full support by email is provided.
