Learners are expected to share photographs of their drawings in Google Classroom Stream. Personal feedback from the instructors with their corrections / comments / recommendations is given within 48 hours (weekends excluded). Feedback is guaranteed for the whole period of the course either written in words or/and drawn directly on the uploaded image.
Learners only need the most basic materials, such as paper, pencils, eraser, ruler, and a compass with two needles.
We made this program as extensive as possible. Complex tasks are split into manageable parts, making the assignments squeezable between routine work and family duties. We hope it will allow everybody to study at their own pace. Please put about 1 hour for watching the video tutorials & at least 1,5 hour for drawing practice per assignment.
The first zoom lecture will be performed as a live session, 4 other lectures were pre-recorded earlier, they will be published together with the weekly assignments. The themes of the lectures are related to the assignments.
Access to the Google Classroom and the videos is for the online course participants only and must not be shared with anyone else in any form
Start each assignment by watching a set of videos, taking notes and making sketches. They will help you to memorise all the new information. To master new skills and to make them become your hands on experience you need a lot of drawing practice.
The homework for each assignment is given at the end of the last video and in description of each assignment. You will find all drawings and medieval models in the folders for each assignment. We expect you to do your homework on paper of A4/Letter format and post it in the Google Classroom Stream.
If you are not satisfied with your drawings and have not finished them, share your drawings at least once a week. Constructive feedback will help you to move on. If you are stuck and don’t understand how to proceed, post your drawing(s) with question(s) in the Stream. We are always ready to give a hand.
The advantage of using the Stream is that you see other students' homework and teachers' feedback as well. You can spot a lot of interesting comments and suggestions that help in your work.
We kindly ask you to take photos of your drawings without distortion. When taking a photo, hold your cell phone or tablet parallel to the drawing. It will help a lot with your homework correction.
We hope that at least for these one or two hours of drawing you will switch off or put your cell phone on “silent mode”. We also recommend asking people around not to disturb you and provide some peace for concentrated work. We insist on this because the learning process is more intense and effective if performed with a complete immersion in the process, thoughtfully and carefully.
If you experience any technical difficulties with Google Classroom, please let us know via email. We will answer you as quickly as we can.
