Successful Learning at a Distance


(From Winter Storage by Karen Tillou, entry level Watercolor)

In addition to the traditional on-site Botanical Illustration curriculum our school offers since 2011 on-site/off-site program which combines classroom participation with remote online learning opportunities. This option is open to both long-distance travelers and local students. In addition to the traditional on-site Botanical Illustration curriculum our school offers since 2011 on-site/off-site program which combines classroom participation with remote online learning opportunities.

After an on-site intense 2-day session the students are requested to report their progress three times prior to delivering the finished plate 30 days after the classroom session. The successful completion of a final artwork is the culmination of each of the distance learning courses. The students are guided by constructive feedback from the teachers for remarkable results, and this hybrid model has proven to be very satisfactory.
