Questions from a Newbie



  • Hi,

    I have recently joined SVS and been enjoying the lessons and I have two questions:

    I have watched the art critique of Fall 2016, which is great and you learn so much, and it says they are planning more of this type of critiques for the future but that is from one year ago and I do not find any more recent ones?

    I have access to less than two pages of courses, I have already gone through around half of them (and some I had already followed for free in Youtube), so I don't fully get what extending the membership would get me? wouldn't it make more sense then to purchase a course that is relevant when it comes? Don't misunderstand me, the courses are very good and most are useful to me in one way or the other. But there doesn't seem to be many, and I don't know whether I am missing something...

    Many thanks!



  • @the-cuentista Not sure I understand what you are talking about with the membership They have around 70 courses on the site with each course containing multiple hours of content and assignments. If you already went through half of them, you must be some sort of rock star LOL. I have been a member for a few years now and still have not got through half of them. The courses are not on youtube for free, they do have a few teasers on youtube but not to the extent that the actual courses go into detail.



  • To be honest it just sounds like you are binge watching the videos without putting in the hours and hours and hours of practice that should put in to go with them.



  • Ok, that is what I meant, I am doing something wrong because I only see less than 2 pages of courses, less than 20 courses in total. Also when I do search by topic, only those courses turn up... Where can I see all the courses???
    And what about the reviews? Last one I see is from Fall last year.
    Sorry I must be missing something really obvious but I cannot work it out!



  • @ma-kome Under video library there are two pages if you click next page at the bottom in total there are over 60 courses or video lessons



  • @rcartwright Sorry you thought that. I explained that I could only see a bunch of courses. Otherwise, I am extremely serious about my learning. Thanks for the tip on the YouTube vids being shorter versions!



  • @ma-kome hey there! glad you are checking out the site. Like Rich said, we have almost 70 recorded videos. This next year we will be offering many more live/interactive classes as well as critiques like the Fall 2016 video. Take your time and look around. There is a lot of stuff to see! : )

    Let me know if you have any questions at all.

    Cheers,
    Lee
