Workshops?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys !

 

It has come to our ears that some of you would be interested in workshops (about art, writing, craft, etc.). So, this thread will serve as a wish list for the future students and teachers :biggrin:

 

 

Some questions for you :

 

For the ones who'd like to learn things

> What are the topics you'd like to learn?

> How long should the class last?

 

For the ones who'd like to teach

> What would you like to share with us?

> How long do you think you'll need for the workshop you are thinking about?

 

 

 

***

 

 

As for me, I have two classes to offer :

> a 12 lessons class about visual composition (that i made for another WOT forum)

> a 6 lessons class about designing your own coat of arms

I'd love to do a visual composition course!  I'd love to do anything that deals with art style, painting, photo manipulation, etc.

 

 

I'd also love to teach something, but I'd need to brainstorm what I could talk about....

anything in particular about art style? that can be a pretty broad topic.

I think just the basics. Symmetry in artwork, how to chose colors that work together, different uses for different paint brushes. Anything at all because I have zero knowledge on the subject. My last art class was in junior high—20 years ago.

I am learning Photoshop and video editing and various steps in filmmaking. I would be interested if someone does a workshop on that.

 

Elements of art sounds fun. How to choose colours, how to make things out of basic stuff, etc.

    • Book one wasn't guaranteed any sequels when it came out, so it had to have an ending tha could pass for a stand-alone. When it sold well, sequels were green lit, and it became the first of a series.   Things changed with hindsight and Jordan changed as a writer and the story changed and grew more complicated.   and everyone leveled up, Rand and the forsaken.   you can construct meaning behind happenstance but I think it was mostly happenstance.
    • That theory actually makes a great deal of sense.   It doesn't explain why they created it in the first place though, as Jordan said it wasn't used for the purpose it was intended for. That said, I suppose it would have been very handy for Rand to have clean Saidin when he was starting out.    
      This made me think of a more literary question - should Jordan have killed off two of the chosen at the beginning of the series? It kind of undermined their status right from the start to die from an untrained farmer and a damaged plant creature. Might it have been better for Someshta to have wounded Balthamel and then Rand caught them by surprise by securing the Eye - then they retreat?    I think the ending would still have been fairly dramatic and it wouldn't really change anything about the long term arc of the series (neither character really needed to be doing anything for the next few books, they could just carry out some schemes off screen, finding artefacts etc. until they get better bodies) - but it may have built more tension to avoid the death of any of the Chosen until book 3.   Thoughts?    
    • I'll do my best to start the game on Monday. The setup is done.   I'll be doing role pms from my phone so its gonna be fairly simple. =)
    •     @Cross  Well you were a pretty amazing mentee, so I guess we did good
