Have you ever wondered what kind of tools you would need to become an artist? Going into an art store can sometimes be overwhelming, so in our first lesson, we're going to take a look at the basic tools and supplies an artist needs for various projects. After you understand the tool set, you'll be prepared to confidently go to your local art store and start experimenting with supplies!

Basics of Drawing

With your art supplies in hand, it's time you get a firm understanding of drawing basics. Today, we're going to look at the importance of the silhouette and the outlining shape.

Drawing from Life and Photographs

In this lesson, we'll go over the two major components of drawing for the beginner. You'll find that the first challenge you're faced with is drawing from things you see.

We'll go over lighting and shading so you'll have all the knowledge a beginning artist needs when learning how to sketch (and more). Have you ever drawn a picture and realized that it looked quite flat? Well, that might be because you never added light to your images. So today we'll look at how to add light, and more importantly, shading!

Perspective: Unraveling the Mystery

Perspective has always been a necessity for anyone drawing pictures with depth. If you wanted to draw a set of buildings and have the viewer looking down the road, how would you do it? One, two, and even three-point perspective is how! In today's lesson, you'll learn how to find the horizon line, create depth in your page, and even find the vanishing points of your lines.

Rendering Techniques

It's time to make a spoon "feel" like a spoon and a rock "feel" like a rock. When you're drawing objects, it's important to create the sense of realism with line work. So in this lesson, we'll go over some important rendering techniques that will give you a jump start toward understanding gradation, line weight, and stylization. All of which will get you on the road to finding your own style and creative expression.

Layout and Design

It's all about telling your story! If you see a drawing of a big arrow pointing to the right, you'd probably look to the right, wouldn't you? In today's discussion on layout and design, we'll look at what it takes to persuade your audience to look at certain spots on your images at particular times without a big arrow. Sounds tough, doesn't it? Well, I'm going to show you some great methods and proven techniques for controlling everything you draw.

Landscape and City Rendering

It's time to put your skills to the test! In this lesson, we'll work up an entire scene with thumbnails then begin working on a first draft. Our discussion on creating landscapes will help you gain confidence in your skills that you've been working on up to this point. We'll also look at how to render your scenes with realistic lighting and shading while keeping the flow entertaining and informative.

Introduction to Color

Do pink and blue go together? Great question! What about the shadow color on an apple? What's the compliment to green? Creating images in color requires taking your artistic understanding to a whole new level. Today's lesson on color composition will be one of the most exciting and rewarding lessons in your art education!

Introduction to Animals

There are 12 units of study

Introduction: Your Career Plan
Career planning creates a road map for your life. It determines what you do and when you do it. Effective career planning begins with a self-assessment, continues on to researching potential career moves, and ends with goal setting. Today, we'll show you how to start developing a useful career plan, regardless of whether you're at the beginning of your journey or have been traveling on the road for a while.
 
Goal Setting and Creativity
In our first lesson, we identified goal setting as an important ingredient in developing your career plan. We shared a step-by-step process for creating and implementing meaningful goals. In this lesson, we'll investigate many more elements of effective goal setting. We'll also explore the nature of creative thinking and share methods for increasing your creativity.
 
Interpersonal Communication (Getting People To Listen and Listening So People Speak)
Whenever two or more people interact, communication takes place. Unfortunately, communication often leads to misunderstanding, frustration, and dissatisfaction. Today, you'll learn how to become a better verbal communicator. We'll help you develop a clear message, deliver it through the right communication channels, and improve your listening and understanding of body language and other forms of nonverbal communication.
 
Written Communication
Now that you have a good understanding of verbal communication, it's time to discuss written communication. In this lesson, we'll present principles and concepts to help you plan, organize, and write your ideas so that you become a master communicator. We'll also discuss the various types of written documents such as reports, memos, e-mails, letters, proposals, policies, and procedures.
 
Becoming and Staying Organized
Personal organization is a highly desirable goal, but one that many people find hard to achieve. It's not about having good intentions or telling a close friend, "This year I'm going to be organized!" The keys to personal organization are awareness, preparation, execution, and follow-through. Our objective for today's lesson is to help you use these keys to open the doors that will lead you to becoming organized.
 
Problem Solving and Decision-Making
Life is filled with opportunities, problems, and choices. So, today, we'll examine key elements of problem solving, present a model of decision-making, and discuss how to use numerical methods to arrive at the best solutions.
 
Time Management (Taking Control
In this lesson, we'll discuss time management, which should really be called self management. The ability to use time wisely makes it easier to accomplish tasks, improves performance, and reduces stress. So, your goal should be to use time to increase your productivity and accomplish a greater number of objectives. The concepts we'll discuss today will help you do just that.
 
Stress Management (Is Stress Desirable?)
Stress is an unavoidable part of life and can't be eliminated. You experience stress during a salary negotiation, a visit to the dentist for a root canal, or at an exciting basketball game. When you manage your stress, you increase your chances of enjoying a fulfilling and rewarding life. In this lesson, we'll help you understand what stress really is, identify where it comes from, find out how it affects you, and learn some stress reduction and coping strategies.
 
Risk Management (How Much Should You Take?)
Risk taking and risk avoiding are parts of everyday life. Life requires choices and choices require risks. These days, how well you identify, research, measure, and take risks is a big part of what determines how successful you will be. Today, we'll help you understand what risk is and present concepts and strategies to help you take calculated risks and make the right choices.
 
Conflict Management (Should It Be Avoided?)
Most people dislike conflict. But it's often unavoidable. Conflict comes from your beliefs, opinions, values, desires, needs, and habits. Contrary to what many people think, conflict is not necessarily undesirable. In this lesson, you'll learn where conflict comes from and examine different strategies that can help you manage it constructively.
 
Financial Skills (Part I)
Some people call accounting the language of business. To be able to use this language, you need to have a good grasp of key financial concepts and fundamentals. So, today, we'll discuss the differences between bookkeeping and accounting, share basic accounting terms, show you various types of accounting methods, and walk you through the two most widely used financial statements.
 
Financial Skills (Part II)
In our final lesson, we'll continue our discussion of accounting and finance. We'll examine various types of costs, determine what cash flow really means, identify key differences between financial and cost accounting, and explore how to make rational investments. After all, you don't mind making a little money, do you?

In this lesson, we'll focus on the idea that the people you spend time with need to support your well-being.

Life 101 - Suggestions for a Happier Life

"Lighten up!" That's what this lesson is all about. We're all becoming too serious. When was the last time you had a really good laugh? When was the last time you laughed at yourself? Today, we'll discuss the importance of humor. We'll go over the steps to reducing the frustrations that develop from too much stress. We'll talk about the value of meditation, time management, and how to create your own health team.

We're All Self-Employed
