I was going to wait a little bit longer before publishing this post but I couldn’t wait!
For few months I had in mind undergoing a new experience. Which is teaching. I was going to hold an actual teaching course but I didn’t have enough time to prepare. It was two weeks before Ramadan that I finally decided to give it a try. And those two weeks weren’t enough at all. Anyway, I stopped preparations and focused on my daily sketching routine.
I joined Skillshare.com last year and I’ve been keeping an eye for classes related to my brand and specialization. I enrolled in many classes but didn’t finish all of them. I liked how organized the website is and the whole teaching process is made easy. I never thought that teaching online is not that hard!
Which is why …. I’m challenging myself by teaching online in Skillshare!
It’s a new experience for me and I definitely am shaky and a little worried. English is not my first language which feels like an obstacle to me. Second, I’m not familiar with the whole teaching thing which makes me indecisive sometimes on the way I should be transmitting certain ideas. Yet, as long as I have the opportunity to try teaching online for the first time ever I will grab this chance and learn from my mistakes later.
So without any further a due, here are the details:
Below is a 1-minute intro to the course:
Title: Drawing Patterns on Fashion Illustrations.
Since my main specialization is patterns I decided to give out this short course on patterns.
The duration of this online course is around 16 minutes, and I chose two patterns to illustrate. The first one is lace and the second is golden swirls. Since it’s not a full course I’m illustrating them quickly while explaining how to do so.
I’m publishing the intro video tonight and will begin uploading the rest of the videos the next couple of days. So you access the project here:
