Get pro guidance on your personal project!

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Duration: 8 weeks (4 sessions)

Begins: Oct 8th, 2023or Oct 15rd, 2023

Sessions: Bi-weekly online sessions
Price: $695

Instructors: Clint & Diana Cearley

THIS CLASS IS FOR THOSE WHO:

  • Have already finished studying the fundamentals

  • Currently building illustrations for their portfolio

  • Want to work on personal pieces but with pro guidance

  • Need targeted image-specific feedback, not structured lessons

OVERVIEW

This class offers bi-weekly input on the art you submit; there's no set curriculum or foundational teaching like the other classes. Send in your art and we'll give our input on how to improve it, possible problems to avoid, and explanations on how to tackle difficult issues of your image. Drawovers and paintovers will be utilized as needed throughout the class in addition to plenty of time to talk with instructors and get your questions answered. Think of the class as a bi-weekly consult with pros on the image(s) of your choice. Feedback will be given during the live Zoom sessions, and in front of the other students.

It's up to you whether you choose to start a new piece at the beginning of the class and get feedback throughout its process, or whether you send in different images every week (or a mix between them).

To give plenty of time for each student, there are only 8 spots available per group. We are running two groups which are exactly the same except group 2 starts and ends one week later. This class does not have the usual midterm break week as it is bi-weekly by nature.

   

    

Please note that this class is not suitable for beginners and many intermediates. It is aimed for those who are preparing a portfolio to get professional work and those who are getting small gigs but want to level up their art. If your work often contains mistakes in anatomy, perspective, shading, values, or lighting, then this class isn't for you.

   

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the best and take your art to the next level! Only 16 total spots available.

"I really enjoyed your class, I think you and Clint are great teachers, especially when you work together to teach the class. You both can offer different perspectives and various tips based on your individual experiences, so when you team up it’s really great! . . the PDFs, demos and exercises you guys provided I was able to learn a lot. ..thank you for everything you taught me!" -Miyuki (student)
