Schoolism.com- My Post Grad Studies
Recently a friend of mine turned me on to this really awesome online art school. I have never taken courses and wanted a good alternative to a formal illustration degree from an accredited school. Schoolism.com is the perfect educational resource for my schedule and needs. They offer a full variety of courses available with some of the most amazing illustrators you could imagine. Most of the courses are offered with personalized video feedback, or self taught videos. Because of the cost, I originally had planned to take the majority of the courses through the self taught videos, but decided that it would be much more beneficial to enroll in the personalized video feedback courses so that I could receive instruction related directly to me.
This is what I am considering to be not only my art education, but my post grad studies as well. Follow along with my blog and I will post my projects and work so you can see my growth and decide if this format of learning is truly beneficial or not?
I am currently enrolled in the following courses (Click on the Artist name for their background. Click on the class name or thumbnail for a course description):
