Art is love, life, laughter, sorrow, is everything, nothing, anything, ONE is.
~Gothique-Blackthorne, Headmistress
Hey everyone! I would like to apologize on behalf of all of the teachers here, we've dropped the ball and this group has suffered because of it. I've taken over as headmaster as per request from :iconmarianne-pet: and will be acting headmaster for the time being.

So let's get down to business!

Teachers, we need you, those of you willing to take on students at any point this year, please note me ( :iconxite91: ) and we'll get you added to the list of teachers :3

I've decided to break down the "semesters" into 4 equal parts (quarters), my preference is as follows

September through November
December through February
March through May
June through August

This way, everyone who wants to learn or teach has the opportunity to without being over-committed. If you don't want to have class over Christmas break, don't take class that quarter, or on the other side of things, if you only have time for class around Christmas break, then take class only that quarter.
If anyone would like to suggest a different setup for classes, let me know and I'll try to take everyone's opinions into account.

Each quarter will end with an "exam" I will discuss exams with the teachers for each student, and we will decide on how best to "test" each student on what they learned throughout the quarter. Your teacher will evaluate it, since they are the one who will have worked with you and understand your improvement best. After the grading, and once you've revised your piece should you feel the need to, we will have a quarterly showcase journal :3

Also, if you choose to continue class for a semester (two quarters) and should your teacher accept a full semester class, we will have "final exams" at the end of the second quarter, which will be a more difficult exam, and showcased in a special "final exam" folder and journal

If you would like to apply as a student, please note the group using the following application

Medium you'd like to learn: (examples; digital drawing, traditional drawing, sewing, etc.)
What you'd like to focus on: (examples; anatomy, lighting/shading, stitching techniques, etc.)
Availability: (use your timezone to make things easier)
Available communications: (email, skype, google hangouts, facebook, etc.)
Anything else you think is important:

students CAN be teachers and Vice Verse

Open Classrooms

I'm also going to be starting open classrooms! Every weekend, I will feature at least 1 teacher hosting either a google hangout or a stream where they teach whatever they like (or whatever you request, if that's what they like) live for the classroom.

If you would like to be a part of this, even if you don't want/have time to be a regular teacher, please note me (again, :iconxite91: ) and I will add you to the list of streaming teachers :3

If you would like to suggest anything or ask any questions, feel free to leave a comment here and I'll respond as soon as I can

- Archer
So I've been in contact with some of the other admins of this group and to be honest, I have no idea what's going on with the next set of classes (life is happening for pretty much everyone right now), but I'd really like to keep the spirit of the group alive, so I will be taking on a few students of my own while waiting for the new leadership to go through!

You can fill out one of the classroom applications and send them to me or you can make your own, whichever you prefer, but keep in mind they must include these;

A link/links to 5 pieces you think are your best works
A little bit about yourself and what your goals are with your art
A list of things you'd like to learn

Note me, specifically, please (makes it easier to find) :iconxite91:

I'll sort through all of them for a few weeks and get back to everyone letting them know whether or not I've chosen them

If I DON'T choose you, don't be discouraged, I'll only be choosing students that I feel I'll actually be able to teach something to :3

Good luck! I hope to hear from you soon!
