Every Iguana Art Academy lesson consists of a presentation (video or slide) and an assignment. Within each presentation students will enjoy five helpful segments:
- Welcome: an introduction to the session
- The Art Life: a visit to the teacher’s studio for a glimpse into the life of a professional artist
- Review: refresh of the previous lesson’s highlights
- Lesson: consists of:
- instruction discussing concepts and principles
- preview of the lesson assignment
- a demonstration of the assignment that takes all the guesswork out of the assignment with step-by-step photos and guidance!
- Art History: most lessons include a visit to the Iguana Museum of Fine Art (IMOFA), which houses an amazing collection of fine art sure to inspire as you enjoy beautiful examples of what you are learning in class.
- Assignment: every Iguana lesson has an assignment that enables you to put into practice what you’ve learned. Assignments are geared to be done in a reasonably short time (though you can devote additional time if you like) and are challenging (consistent with course level).
Enjoy lessons at your own pace. The Iguana method will help you successfully apply each lesson’s concepts and techniques and have a good time doing so! We have found that our “book” format, with its step-by-step illustrated format is more effective than video. You can move through the slides by clicking on the arrows (backward / forward). As with all lessons, you’ll find assignment details below. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
