On line classes

Over the past several years I have found a few sites that offer some great classes online. I have trusted my instinct and have been pleasantly surprised at the quality of courses available over the internet. I have taken photography classes, Photoshop Elements classes and scrapbooking classes. My favourites sites are Jessica Sprague and Big Picture Classes, they offer "forever access" to class materials and lessons. Their sites are easy to follow and teacher availability has been great!

The past 3 weeks I have been taking a class from Claudine Hellmuth, called Composition for Collage. Collage is way our of my comfort zone but I have really enjoyed it. I feel any class on design will better my scrapbooking and photography, because so may principals overlap! One more week to go! Has been lots of fun.

Here are my "homework" samples for the class so far. Week one was about asymmetrical composition, week two was about using horizons in composition, week three was about vignette compositions and this week we are using grids for our compositions.

I love the last one the best! I am glad I used this picture of Taylor (he is actually in the image twice!) mixed with lots of the images Claudine supplied as downloads. I think it's a fun collage/scrapbook page! It makes me smile! Haven't decided what I'll play with this week, if I get time I'll put it up on my Blog to share!
