Directions in Abstraction is an online course with a difference as all of the teaching on the course is live rather than recorded. This means that Lin will be demonstrating and teaching live from her studio and you will be joining her online to watch the teaching and take part in live painting.
Lin will teach and demonstrate an art technique or exercise in her studio and broadcast it live over the computer. You will then have the chance to have a go yourself in your own home – maybe that’s in the kitchen, on the dining room table, in the spare room or even your own studio space.
As each session is a live event you will able to get feedback on what you are doing at the time just as if it were an in person session – allowing for the limitations of showing Lin your work over your computer or tablet. You will also be able to post images in the Facebook group and for the Group Coaching sessions for later feedback.
For the course you will need access to a computer, tablet or Ipad. We will be using Zoom and you will need to download this simple software before the session.
You can download Zoom here by clicking on the link which will take you to the Zoom website.
In advance of the meeting it is a good idea to do a check of your audio and video to ensure they are working.
Setting up Your Room for the Course
As the live teaching session on a Monday will also involve you painting you will need enough space to have your computer or device to hand along with your painting materials.
Have the power cable to hand for your phone, tablet or computer in case of low battery and check blinds/lighting in advance to ensure that you can see the screen. You will get a clearer video if you have light behind the screen and shining towards you.
Each session will be recorded and all delegates have been asked to agree to a statement of confidentiality when they register for the course.
