With the announcements about the new Patron status at Pixel Scrapper, we've been alluding to new opportunities. I'm excited to let you know that I'm ready to get one of those started!
I've been thinking and planning to start some classes here at Pixel Scrapper. They are highly rated on our feature requests forum, and I also love the idea of sharing some of the things I've picked up over the years. However, figuring out how exactly to teach what I know in my brain has been a bigger struggle that I was anticipating! But I've gotten lots of great feedback from the community, and I think things have gelled into something that I'm really excited about!
I'm going to start with a Designer Basics class, where I will lead you through the basics of making papers and elements. Eventually, this class will be open to all patrons, but for now I want to do a small run through to see how things work and what questions come up so I can make sure things are clear before I open it up.
This is a two part class (Papers and Elements) with each part having about 15 short lessons. Each lesson has a small assignment for you to complete at the end. The lessons are a mix of tutorials you've already seen on this site, as well as some new content I've been working on. I'm not clear on how much time this will take, that's some of the feedback I'm hoping to get from you, but I'm hoping we can get it all done in September. So if you apply, I'd just ask that you have a few hours a week you can commit to this.
This is definitely jump into the deep end and see if we can swim type of experience. So if you'd rather wait for a more polished version, please remember this is not the only chance for this opportunity.
The class assumes you have basic understanding of Photoshop, but are looking to learn the basic skills of designing for digital scrapbooking.
If you're interested in joining me for this class, and are a Pixel Scrapper Patron, you can apply via the contact form. Select "Designer Basics Class Application" from the drop down.
