Yes. Your work will be checked and feedback given at each step of the way during each block. These checkins are especially important during the first block when students learn the foundation for the technique that is the basis for the amazing work students create.
In the first three-month block, there are over 40 different assessment points where you will receive feedback so we can make sure your technique is perfect before you progress forward. This may sound like a lot, but these checkins are necessary to ensure your work hits the highest quality you are capable of. Once the students have grasped the initial concepts and started to become confident with the method we see them picking up speed as they move through the assignments.
We’re working on a Facebook group for students so you can see how your classmates are progressing. Past graduates of the full Evolve program taught inside the studio will also come in from time to time but the bulk of the interaction will happen during your check-ins and feedback.
We will ship internationally and currently have students in 17 different countries including: Germany, Singapore, Japan, Australia, England, Sweden, Croatia, USA, Canada and many more.
The cost of shipping is included with your block, so there are no additional fees you need to worry about.
We hear this all the time, however, we believe anyone who wants to learn can be taught to create realistic art. What is most often missing is proper education, and our program gives you the clear steps to follow, in the proper order which leads to mastery.
If you believe that you have a special reason that would prevent you from getting the same results as our other students (EG: shaky hands) please reach out to us at [email protected] so we can assess your particular situation.
You need to use the same tools as are used in the video so that you will achieve the same outstanding results. This also helps us to troubleshoot any issues you are having with the techniques because we know these materials inside and out, and want you to start right from the beginning using professional materials.
First, a physical box containing your art making materials will be delivered to your doorstep. Once you have your box you will also be added to the online learning portal which contains all of the videos and assignments.
The videos are all pre-recorded which means you can watch them whenever you like, from wherever you are in the world. Then when you reach the assignments you are given clear instruction and once finished you will photograph your work, and upload it to be reviewed by your instructor. Homework is turned around in 24 hours Monday to Friday so you can continue the next day.
On Holidays and the odd rare occurrence there may be slight delays in homework, but not more than 48 hours.
There is also a group chat area where students can virtually meet, help each other out and common questions answered.
Click the image below for a short video for what to look for in a sharpener, lamp, and box. Don not worry if you can't find the exact materials. What is important is that you have a way to sharpen your pencils, and to create a shadow box (which will be covered in the course)
There are no assignments or videos throughout the entire course that have nudity in them.
Evolve is family friendly and the minimum recommended age is 12 years old. That said, it will be helpful if there is an adult to assist with any language needing explanation.
The Facebook group is unmoderated, so if there is a concern about what may be posted, you can make the decision to join the group or not. You will not be missing any educational elements by not participating on Facebook as all instruction and feedback is handled outside of Facebook.
