I hold four weekly mentoring studio sessions: Tuesday morning, Tuesday midday, Thursday morning, and Thursday evening. Each studio is limited to 8-10 students.
During this weekly studio time, students work on their individual drawings and paintings in a virtual in-person studio. The class is a dedicated time each week for students to work and ask technique and compositional questions and receive feedback through an open discussion. As a group, students learn more than just what their individual challenge is because all discussions/critiques are done on-screen; everyone learns from each other's challenges.
All classes are held via Zoom. It is extremely easy to use and very interactive. It is also helpful to have your cellphone so you can take a picture of your work and email it to me during studio time. This will allow me to share it on his screen and discuss the piece with you.
Studio times are scheduled on a monthly basis and will be listed in your RL Caldwell Studio account under the My Online Courses section. To see the scheduled classes, click on your Mentoring Studio, which will bring up the listing of classes under the Course Curriculum.
If you are paying for your mentoring class week by week or month by month, you will be unenrolled after your last class; however, as soon as you have enrolled again, you will have full access to your mentoring studio.
Before enrolling, please visit the Technology Needs page to make sure you have everything that is needed to participate in the online class ensuring that you have a great experience.
To prepare yourself for the class and to access the Zoom meeting, click on the appropriate class to read any instructions for that day’s class and then click on “Join Zoom Meeting” when you are ready to join us in the studio.
In addition to the weekly mentoring studio, all students enrolled will have access to the “Artists' Resources” section of the website as well as the “Demonstrations” section.
