Members Question: How Would You Like To Learn ART?

We were curious to know so lets ask members of the various Creative Wellness groups for feedback and votes.

Would it be "you tube" or prerecorded video, live online class, in person, or downloadable content?

Here is what the poll in May 2021 revealed.

Members feedback comments - How would you like to learn?

Video Content

  • Short specific video lessons that aren't at fast pace..... I usually feel like I'm taking too long to figure out how to draw something when I'm working on a follow alongside video.

  • Extremely thorough videos, as if they're teaching small children (I have extreme difficulties learning and remembering new things). Also where they list the material they use, including brand, in the description or listed (i.e written) in the video.

  • YouTube (or other platform) tutorial, not sped up, show the process, captions, I don't necessarily need supplies list as I have a stash bit as a beginner it's a lifesaver to know what we "should" be using. Once you've a stash and used a myriad of supplies you know what you can get away with.

  • Youtube, for me, is the most easy way to learn. We do it in our time, our space, our "atmosphere".

  • A live session every two weeks or every Saturday go through journals step by step I would be happy to pay for class.

Ebooks and PDF downloads

I sadly find online and youtube very hard to follow. Would love PDF sheets

In Person

In person is best for me, either group or one on one. I don't mind starting using videos or downloads, but when I get stuck on something, I'd like to be told what I did wrong, and possibly help me through it.

Art Journaling Comments

  • I want to know how to make junk journals to put memories in.

  • I love to see what everyone has done.

  • I love to journal.

  • I am a crafter, illustrator and art journaling new to me. I believe I can grow and learn in a supportive group.

  • I can do journaling writing but struggle to combine writing and crafting decorating a page.
