CREATIVE: DIGITIZING CALLIGRAPHY AND ARTWORK

Do you have awesome artwork or calligraphy skills on paper and no idea how to translate that to the computer? Digitizing your work is the first step in translating your beautiful artwork from paper to pixel. We'll be starting at the beginning and walking you through scanning, editing and using calligraphy and artwork in your layouts and designs. This will be a beginner to intermediate course.

Although instruction will be using specific examples and methods in the Adobe Creative Suite (specifically, Photoshop), we do not require you to purchase Photoshop in order to take the course. The same principles could be applied to other photo-editing software, including free alternatives like GIMP, or take advantage of the free trial from Adobe to see if Photoshop is for you.

CREATIVE: RIBBON + FABRIC

We love spools of dreamy hand-dyed silk ribbon from other creatives as much as anyone. Trust me, we have boxes on boxes of ribbons in the office! But sometimes you just need a few pieces for a small project, or perhaps you just can't quite find the right color to match your project. Maybe the price is too high for you and your client, or you just love fabric and would love to know how to dye it yourself.

No matter the reason, this course will teach you the basics of sourcing, dyeing, and using fabric in your creative pursuits. We'll look at everything including how to tear fabric down to ribbons, dye fabric to match specific projects, and use fabric for large scale lettering and painting projects.

As a bonus, we'll also touch on how to price fabric-related projects, using principles we discussed in Pricing I and II.

CREATIVE: LINE BOTANICALS

Botanical sketches are traditionally very detailed and precise. These make for beautiful drawings and paintings, and we absolutely love them!

This course, on the other hand, will explore a more whimsical interpretation of line botanicals. We'll be learning how to loosen up a bit and create botanicals with loose movement, imprecisions. I'll walk you through how to embrace imperfections in your piece and stylize your botanical drawings.

For this course, we'll use both pen and brush to explore this style so you can see how it can apply to many different mediums.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
Prep school is designed to allow you to design your own curriculum so you can work at your own pace. Every semester we release successive courses to help you move your creative business forward.

With that in mind, courses are released at the beginning of every Fall or Spring semester, but you can register, start and finish any released course at your own pace.

During the launch semester for each set of new classes, we will be offering extra perks to students who not only sign up during launch but complete their coursework within that semester.
How long do I have access to the course?
All Prep School courses are available for lifetime access! We understand that life happens and you may not always be in a place to take full advantage of a course when you first sign up. Work through your class on the first day, come back months later for a refresher... either way, all class materials will be here for you.

In addition, once you register for a course, you'll have access to the private Facebook group and school-wide live streams!
Is this course eligible for the launch semester perks?
No, only the most recent semester's classes are eligible for launch semester perks. Check out the Semester IV classes (you can filter for them on the main course page) to see which classes are eligible!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 10 days and we will give you a full refund.
