HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE COURSE?
You will have 2 years of access to this course. You can stream the video anytime and anywhere you wish with our Vimeo link.
WHAT IF I’M NEW TO PAINTING?
You do not need any watercolor skills for this class. All of the supplies and basic skills are shown in easy-to-watch video lessons that are included with the class! In addition, there are practice paint-alongs to get you up to speed.
WHAT SUPPLIES DO I NEED?
You may already have some of the supplies, like paraffin wax, in your kitchen pantry. Many of the other items can be found on our website. You can find the supply list by clicking here.
HOW DOES THE FACEBOOK GROUP WORK?
We will have our own private group, so you can feel secure about posting in-process or completed pieces whenever you wish!
Kathie will go to the Facebook page once a day for the entirety of the course and give feedback. After the completion dates of the course, Kathie will check in periodically to look at the work and give comments.
WHAT IS THE TOPIC OF THE FIRST ZOOM MEETING?
Photo critique is on Sunday November 8th, 2021 at 1:00 pm EST
Sometimes choosing the right photo for a Batik watercolor project can be challenging. The first Zoom meeting is about making sure you are set up for success with your photo choice. If you’d like feedback on the photo you are considering for your batik, you will have the chance to submit them for Kathie’s review. Please submit them no later than 48 hours in advance of the Zoom meeting so that Kathie will have time to go through them and get them back to you with targeted advice. During the Zoom meeting itself, Kathie will have chosen a few sample photos and will use them to provide feedback that will apply to most everyone. She will use these specific examples to explain why a particular photo makes a good or bad choice for a batik painting.
WHAT IS THE TOPIC OF THE SECOND ZOOM MEETING?
Project critique is on Sunday, November 21st 2021 at 1:00 pm EST
Once you have worked through the entire process and removed the wax from your painting, you may have some questions about your piece. In this second Zoom meeting, I will choose a few of the pieces from the class (with permission of the students – no names will be given) and use them to illustrate some points that will help the class as a whole. It’s a live meeting, so you can ask whatever questions you have and we can address any problems or uncertainties as well.
This group debrief is offered in addition to a Personal Critique from Kathie George.
HOW DOES THE PERSONAL CRITIQUE AT THE END OF THE COURSE WORK?
At the end of the course, Kathie will email you a form that will outline the critique process. Those who are interested in receiving personalized feedback can fill out the form to allow Kathie to review your work!
In order to receive a personalized critique, you must submit your piece to Kathie before the end-date on the class schedule. Kathie will remind you of the deadline so you don’t miss it!
After the submission date stated on the course schedule, Kathie is “off duty,” so to speak. As a courtesy, Kathie will check into the private Facebook group every few days for a while to see if anyone needs help. She wants you to be successful!
WHAT IF I’M UNHAPPY WITH THE COURSE?
Kathie’s goal for this course is to share with you all the information and skills that she has developed over her own career. She wants you to be successful! And while she doesn’t expect you to be an expert at this technique after one painting, she DOES want you to be happy that you took the course and feel that it is a good value. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us within the first 10 days and we will give you a total refund.
